To make this peanut butter, all you need is 1 single ingredient (peanuts!), a food processor and less than 10 minutes of your time.

Add the peanuts into the bowl of a food processor and blend in 60-second intervals for 4-5 minutes. Leave your food processor to rest in between blends so you don’t burn out the motor. Scrape down the insides of the food processor with a rubber spatula to make sure all the peanuts are well blended.
The peanuts will go through the following texture stages:
Coarsely crushed peanuts.
Finely crushed peanuts, almost like a powder
A rough, powdery peanut paste.
A thicker, more solid paste.
A peanut butter dough-like ball.
Runny peanut butter.
Smooth peanut butter.
When the peanut butter becomes runny, continue blending for 60 more seconds, until you reach your desired smooth consistency.
Pour the peanut butter into an air-tight jar or container before covering and storing in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
TO MAKE A SANDWICH: toast 2 slices of your favorite sandwich bread until they’re just how you like them.
Spread on a generous amount of your homemade peanut butter, top with slices of banana and enjoy your breakfast sandwich!
My final tip for making this peanut butter is to use a powerful food processor with a strong motor. Grinding down dry peanuts without any added liquid can put a lot of strain on a food processor’s motor.
