Easy Blender Pumpkin Spice Peanut Butter
Yields: about 1 cup + 2 tablespoons
 
This is a fun fall twist on classic homemade peanut butter! It’s just as smooth and creamy as anything you’d buy from the store, but it’s full of cozy spices and simple, wholesome ingredients. You only need 5 minutes to make it! It will keep for at least 3 months (if not longer!) if stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  1. Add the peanuts to a high-powered blender, and blend the peanuts until smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Add the pumpkin spice and salt. Blend until everything is fully incorporated and smooth. Transfer to a glass jar or airtight container, and refrigerate.
Notes: Lightly salted roasted peanuts may be substituted, and reduce the amount of salt called for in the recipe to compensate.

I made my own pumpkin pie spice using the following: 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg, and ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger. Feel free to adjust the amount of spices and salt to suit your tastes! If you’re a big spice lover like me, then increase the cinnamon by another ⅛ to ¼ teaspoon, and sprinkle in a little extra nutmeg and ginger too!

You’ll want to use a blender or food processor with very sharp blades and a strong motor. This ensures that the peanut butter turns out smooth and creamy without overworking your machine. This is the blender that I own, and I absolutely love it! It’s worth every single penny, and I use it every day. (And if you check out this blog post of mine, you’ll see lots more recipes of mine you can make with it!)

For the thickest texture, wait at least 12 hours after refrigerating before dipping in your spoon!
