Our smooth and creamy Thermomix Peanut Butter is super easy to make. It contains only one ingredient, is much cheaper than store bought, and there are no hidden nasties.
Making your own peanut butter from scratch in the Thermomix is quick, convenient and fun! Like Thermomix Almond Butter and Tahini, the powerful Thermomix blades spin at a million miles per hour to grind the peanuts into peanut butter.
I love using this peanut butter recipe to make my delicious Peanut Butter Bliss Balls.
Why We Love It
- Made in a fraction of the time compared to a normal food processor.
- No need to add additional oil - the blades are so powerful that the peanuts release their natural oils.
- Cheaper than commercial peanut butter, with the added advantage of knowing exactly what is in it.
Peanuts - use roasted peanuts. You can easily buy prepared roasted peanuts in the supermarket. They are usually lightly salted, which contributes to the flavour. To roast your own peanuts, preheat the oven to 180°C and spread the nuts in a layer on a baking tray. Roast for 10-20 minutes until well browned. Allow to cool completely before continuing with the recipe. You can also use peanuts in their skins for this recipe.
