How to Make Peanut Butter (or Any Nut Butter)
To make any nut butter, you’re really just blending up nuts until they’re a smooth butter! You can see them go through stages as they blend—from whole nuts, to crumbs, to a thick hard dough ball, and then a smooth butter once the oils release.
It will take a bit of time, so be patient and watch the magic happen! Of course, the blending time will depend on the strength of your food processor. With a more powerful food processor, it can take just a few minutes. For others, it could take up to 10 minutes.
Either way, the end result is the same: clean, simple pumpkin spice peanut butter that‘s worth spreading on almost anything! Feel free to try other seasonings like cinnamon, maple extract, or a chai spice blend. Or, swap out the peanuts for a different variety of nuts you like.
With a recipe this simple, there’s plenty of room for creativity—so make this pumpkin spice peanut butter recipe your own!
