For those of you getting hit hard with snow today, I hope you are staying warm and cozy. While the snow storm continues outside, I’ve been cooking up a storm in the kitchen. I decided to experiment making nut butter in my food processor. While the end result isn’t as smooth and creamy as if I had made it in a Vitamix (a high speed blender), it still turned out quite tasty.
Here’s how easy it is: Add peanuts, toasted coconut, and a pinch of salt to the food processor and blend until everything is finely chopped. Add a small amount of coconut oil to gel it all together. Blend until it has a peanut butter consistency.
This coconut peanut butter is a great addition to an afternoon snack or goûter. More ideas on what to enjoy it with coming later this week!
Note: 1-2 Tablespoons of nut butter is FODMAP friendly
1 cup roasted unsalted peanuts
1/2 cup toasted coconut flakes
1/2 tsp coconut oil
1. Combine the peanuts, coconut, and salt. Blend in a food processor or Vitamix until finely chopped.
2. Add coconut oil and blend until the mixture has a peanut butter consistency.
