Homemade peanut butter
- Sunflower seed oil have less smell/flavor than other plant oils and is therefor more suitable for making peanut butter.
- Keep in a container with a tight lid and store in the fridge to slow down oxidation and separation of the oils in the peanut butter.
- To avoid oil on top of the jar store the container upside down
Benefits of peanut butter:
Peanuts are rich in fibers, protein and contain a majority of saturated fat.
Potassium, antioxidants, magnesium, vitamin B6 and vitamin E are also abundant in peanut butter. It is good for bone building and muscle recovery.
Home made peanut butter are free from hydrogenated fats (used to prevent commercially made peanut butter from separating) and the amount of sugar and salt can be controlled.
Because of the high fat content it is best not to consume more than 2 tbsp of peanut butter per day.
