I’ve been making my own peanut butter at home for years, but I’ve pretty much always stuck t plain-Jane peanut butter. In other words, I grind up peanuts and salt, and that’s it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s the best kind of peanut butter for sure, but sometimes it can get a little boring. Recently, I’ve been following these Indian chefs – well, one is French trained – and they spice up everything from ice cream to taffy, so I figured why not spice up my peanut butter.
The results were delicious! I really made an effort not to do it with the spices so that the peanut butter would still be the predominant flavor, and that’s exactly what I got. The end result still tasted like natural peanut butter but with just a hint of something extra. Let us know what you think in the comments section below, and as always, we hope you enjoy this recipe!
All natural peanut butter spiced with cinnamon, ginger, chili powder, salt, and sugar. An easy way to jazz up your peanut butter when simply choosing between creamy or chunky isn't exciting enough.
- 16 oz dry roasted peanuts, unsalted
- Cinnamon powder
- Ginger powder
- Chili powder
- Add all ingredients to a food processor and process continuously on high for several minutes until a smooth butter forms.
- Taste and add more spices if necessary. Transfer to a jar and store in the cupboard or the fridge.
I ending up using about 1 - 1 1/2 tsp of each ingredient. This is the kind of recipe that I don't think really has a "recipe," per se. I think you should adjust the quantities of each spice to suit your own tastebuds. The combination is great, but it's up to you how salty, sweet, or spicy you like your peanut butter.
