Aren’t those peanuts so pretty?  The stripes are so incredibly fascinating I can stare at them all day.

Actually, I can stare at them as long as I have a ginormous spoon slathered with PB in front of my face.

Ingredients

  • cups Wild Jungle Peanuts (I bought mine were raw from Whole Foods)
  • ½ tsp Liquid Stevia Extract (or ½ cup Stevia in the Raw)
  • tsp Salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Lay the peanuts in a single-layer on a large baking sheet. Roast at 5-minute intervals, tossing the peanuts between each interval, for about 20 minutes total, or until fragrant. Let cool slightly.
  • Add the peanuts to a food processor and grind until smooth and buttery, scraping down the sides when necessary (takes about ~10 minutes total).
  • Add the sweetener and salt to taste. Grind again until smooth. Scoop the nut butter into a jar, seal tightly, and refrigerate to store.
