Tasty Tuesday

This week I thought to post recipes that you and your children would love try.. Check out New Mommy Rant for another healthy recipe your little ones will love! Here is a great recipe for homemade peanut butter!
HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER
Ingredients:
1 1/2 c. unsalted roasted peanuts
1 tbsp. peanut oil
Utensils:
food processor (You'll need help from your adult assistant.)
bowl
mixing spoon
storage container
measuring cups and spoons

Directions:
For smooth peanut butter:
Mix the peanuts with the peanut oil, and pour the mixture into the food processor.
Process the mixture until it's very smooth.
Store your smooth peanut butter in a sealed container in the fridge. It will be good for 2 weeks.
For chunky peanut butter:
Take about 1/4 cup out of your 1 1/2 cups of peanuts and set them aside.
Mix the rest of the peanuts with the oil, and pour the mixture into the food processor.
Process the mixture until it's very smooth, then stir in the peanuts that you had set aside.
Process a few seconds more to create the chunks in your chunky peanut butter.
You can store your chunky peanut butter in a sealed container in the fridge. It will be good for 2 weeks.



EAT & ENJOY!

Fun cokking project to do with kids! I'm just not a fan of peanut butter. Maybe we'll make it and send it to my brother.
