Have a go at making your own inexpensive peanut butter at home using your food processor. Depending on your own personal preference, you can use salted or unsalted peanuts. It's also possible to use peanut oil instead of vegetable oil but it's more expensive.
I make this all the time. I use a 16 oz. jar of dry roasted unsalted peanuts, 1 Tbsp. canola oil and 1/2 c. Splenda. You can use any type of nut you like. The more oily the nut, the less oil you will need to add and vice versa. I've used cashews, almonds, walnuts and pecans. Sometimes I use a combination of all of them. That's when it tastes really good!! Update - lately I've been adding 1/2 to 1 tsp. of hazelnut flavoring to my peanut butter. It's very good! - 08 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I live in Japan, and we cannot buy crunchy penut butter here. There are only skippy kinds of peanut butter. (very creamy and very sweet ones) They are OK, but they are too sweet for me. I followed the recipe exactly. It tasted natual and not sweet at all. Perhaps I could add one more tbs of honey. A good thing about this recipe is you can make the peanut butter in any way you like. :D - 07 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a great recipe! I used my blender to process the peanuts, and it worked great! My 2 year old loves it, so it must be a hit! thanks! - 20 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
