The other day, I got an email from one of my professors warning the class not to eat anything with peanuts and bananas, because one student in that class was allergic to both of those items.
Allergic to bananas and peanuts!! I could not imagine! I mean, I occasionally make peanut butter banana bread with peanut butter glaze (can you get enough peanut butter?) and I make peanut butter and banana smoothies on a regular basis.
This made me so sad. And a little guilty. Mainly because I don’t have many allergies. Like, at all. Except for mosquitoes, but who’s going to bring that to class?
So as a late Thanksgiving “what I am thankful for” spiel (since I somehow missed doing that around Thanksgiving), I am thankful that I don’t have any food allergies…that I know of.
So I am making the most of my peanut eating capabilities. I am making homemade peanut butter.
I can’t believe I have never done this before. It’s almost embarrassing how easy this is. This was so good, I may never buy peanut butter in a grocery store ever again!
Healthy 1 ingredient Homemade Peanut Butter. Made in a food processor without oil, you won't believe how easy this is to make!
- 3 cups roasted and salted peanuts
Place the peanuts in a food processor and pulse until a creamy mixture forms. This may take a while, depending on your food processor.
