A few weeks ago, a friend of mine brought be a teeny tiny jar of coconut peanut butter from Hawaii. The key word here is “tiny”. There were barely 2 Tablespoons in said tiny jar, which were both gone in about 45 seconds, and left me craving more! I’ve been thinking about making my own version ever since and finally found some time this past weekend to play with the recipe.
This easy version literally melts in your mouth and tastes just like the contents of the tiny jar that I licked clean. Not really. The jar was too small for my tongue to fit.
1 cup unsalted roasted peanuts
2 TB coconut oil
Blend until smooth. Pour into glass jar and place in fridge for several hours to set up. Makes approximately 1/2 cup of peanut butter.
