Banana Honey Roasted Peanut Butter

by Sarah on March 5, 2014 · 10 comments

On Monday I mentioned that the banana ‘flour’ cookie experiment was really just a chance for me to think outside of the (giant 14-lb) box of dried banana chips I happen to have overstocked from my Nutty Butter days.IMG_3105 (1024x683)

But in my nut butter loving mouth mind there’s nothing wrong with thinking out of the box…and straight into the food processor.IMG_5109 (683x1024)

I’ve tasted a bunch of banana flavored nut butters, and they all have the slight tinge of fake banana candy flavor to them.IMG_5144 (1024x684)

The solution? 

Use real (dried) bananas.IMG_5125 (1024x683)

And while you can use regular peanuts…I’m really quite partial to honey roasted.IMG_5128 (1024x683)

Put ‘em in. Turn it on.

Leave it for a minute (or five) and you’re done.IMG_5145 (1024x683)

Cinnamon is optional.IMG_5131 (1024x683)

I love this. In fact, I think it’s a great candidate for #publicbanana.

It’s ALMOST Calee Butter. Yours was a bit more complicated, but I can’t give away ALL of my secrets. [This version is the "being back in school makes me lazy and I can't afford fancy nuts" version. ;) ]

Honey roasted peanuts are seriously my kryptonite! I haven’t had them in the house for years…now that I’m FINALLY more normal around food, I think it’s high time I picked some up…and obviously this nut butter will be happening soon after I get back from the store! :)
