Healthy home-made peanut butter

Most of the brands of peanut butter available in the market pack a host of preservatives and sweeteners which might not be healthy for your dogs. Even though they will drool at the mere smell of it, we need to ensure that we give them the home made version which is natural and healthier. It takes less than 30 mins to prepare it at home and can also be used as an ingredient in home-made cookies.
INGREDIENTS:
  1. 400 grams shelled and unsalted peanuts
  2. Honey
  3. Refined Oil
 
PREPARATION:
  1. Roast the shelled, unsalted peanuts for a few minutes
  2. Add them to the food processor
  3. Process the peanuts till the texture becomes like a smooth paste
  4. In between keep checking on the texture and once it becomes finely grind, add 1 tbsp honey and 1 tbsp refined oil
  5. Process it again until it becomes a fine paste. The motor of the processor can heat up during the process, hence its advisable to give it appropriate breaks
  6. But more importantly, you need to keep a track of the transition stages the peanut will undergo. Refer to the images below for reference
Let the final paste come to room temperature before storing it in a jar inside a refrigerator. Not only is this safe for your pets, you can also use it for your own consumption 🙂
