We made peanut butter today. It was for a math project. We divided 100 peanuts into ten sets of ten and then learned about halves when we opened them up and separated the peanuts. For your information (because I know you're wondering) 100 peanuts makes about 1 cup of peanut butter. I've learned I will not be one of those make-your-own-peanut-butter moms. It was quite a bit of work. But it was fun for today.
So, you put the peanuts in the blender or food processor and add about 1T oil for each cup of peanuts and then add oil as needed to smooth it out. We're pretty used to natural PB without sugar, but this didn't quite taste the same. Could have used something, maybe some honey.
We decided to make cookies instead of PBJ sandwiches. Much better, if you ask me!
This was a very quick and easy recipe.
1 C PB
1 tsp vanilla
Add first four ingredients together and form into little balls. Squish some chocolate chips onto the top. Bake at 350 for about 9-11 minutes or till slightly cracked on top. Don't overbake. Yummy!
