Choco Vegan Peanut Butter Recipe


Vegan Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is mostly vegan. But the hydrogenated oil used to prepare them is far from being healthy.

That’s why this homemade, sweet, chocolaty, and completely oil-free version is so perfect.

Homemade Peanut Butter > Store Bought Peanut Butter

I actually wanted to make the pure peanut butter for this blog post, but Nabin came up and suggested me a chocolate variant.

It was a great idea but I had to use every last drop of the agave syrup (I only had 1 tablespoon left). The end result was nothing but delicious.

Homemade Choco Peanut Butter

Prep

Cook

Total

Yield 1.5 cup

This homemade, sweet, salty, chocolaty, and completely oil-free peanut butter is a perfect replacement for the unhealthy ones you find in the stores.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Raw Peanuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 tablespoons Cacao Powder
  • 1 tablespoon Maple Syrup

Instructions

  1. Roast the raw peanuts in a skillet over medium heat until they are light brown.
  2. Once brown, transfer the peanuts to a kitchen towel. Fold the towel and rub it well so that the skin separates from the peanut. Sieve the peanuts and discard the skin.
  3. Transfer the peanuts to a food processor (or a blender). Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons cacao powder, and 1 tablespoon maple syrup.
  4. Process the mixture for 2 minutes or until smooth or creamy. You may have to scrape the sides and bottom of the food processor to get an even creamy texture.
  5. Transfer to an airtight container. You can store it for 4-5 weeks in your fridge.
