Homemade Peanut Butter Recipe


Who knew making your own peanut butter was so easy? I'm not sure I'll ever buy it again, considering how easy this recipe was to make, and how good it tasted!

 

Ingredients:
1 cup peanuts (I used roasted, lightly salted)
1-2 teaspoons peanut oil

Place your peanuts in a food processor and blend for about a minute. Once the nuts start to break down into a fine grain you will notice they start to release some natural oils. Add about a teaspoon of your peanut oil and blend again. At this point the consistency should resemble a grainy peanut butter. If you need to, add another teaspoon of peanut oil. Blend until completely smooth.


The motor in my food processor was working hard on this and the peanut butter was actually quite warm when it came out of the food processor. Use immediately or place in a covered dish and refrigerate until needed!

Greek Yogurt Frozen Bites

     These Greek Yogurt Frozen bites are so delicious and best part is they are super healthy and Tone it Up approved!


     
They're also great substitute for when you are craving ice cream, which for me is always.

    
For my Greek Yogurt Bites I started with Chobani Greek Yogurt (Strawberry and Lemon)


     
Place yogurt in a Ziplock bag and cut off a small corner.
Pipe bite sized dots of yogurt onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet.

 I was able to fit both flavors on one cookie sheet
 

Once you're done piping the yogurt onto the cookie sheets, place in freezer for 1 hour!




Enjoy!
