Homemade Protein Peanut Butter

Who doesn’t love a little nut butter? And for those of you who have tried the high protein peanut butters on the market know how amazing they are. But damn they’re expensive! So I decided to whip up some protein peanut butter of our own. I think I could still up the protein content and will go for another flavour and another batch in the future. But for now this one passed the test (aka the Jon Mills seal of approval)!

Homemade Protein Peanut Butter (Makes 32 x 1 tbsp portions):

3 cups of peanut, roasted unsalted

1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp maple syrup

2 scoops of Bluestar Whey Smooth Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Powder

1/2 cup of water

5 tbsp peanut oil

1) Put the peanuts into a large food processor or a wide bottomed blender and grind until it turns into a paste. Add in the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth. If you like it a little less chunky add more water or oil (but macros will change if more oil is added). It’s as easy as that! Enjoy on a plain rice cake, in your protein shake, stir into your oatmeal or just take’r down with a spoon 🙂
