This documentary right here is currently on Kickstarter, and it’s something I’m very interested in and think other people should be too. I wanted to try to bring a little more attention to it, because there’s only 6 more days to the Kickstarter and it’s so close to being funded!
This documentary highlights the ridiculous amounts of sugars and carbohydrates that have been advertised to us and snuck into our foods for the last several decades. It focuses mainly on the diabetes epidemic that has been spreading and what it is, exactly, that’s causing it. Just click the link and read about it on the Kikcstarter page, they even have a preview of their documentary available!
Now that my weekly advertising is out of the way, I made peanut butter! From scratch! It was super easy too, it only took three ingredients. The recipe I followed called for peanut oil, but like everything in the world I can do it with I substituted coconut oil. I got a super sweet peanut butter that is amazing and 100% pure.
15 oz. unsalted peanuts
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoon honey (or agave nectar, whatever is your thing)
1 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil (or peanut oil)
Alright I lied it took four. Now that trust issues have been formed, put peanuts, salt, and honey in a processor (I use my amazing nutribullet) and blend for about a minute. If it gets stuck shake it around a little (probably don’t do this if you’re using a big blocky processor)
Now add your delicious coconut oil a little at a time. I usually add it in half a tablespoon intervals and blend in between. Soon you will have creamy and delicious peanut buttery confection to add to bananas, breads, oatmeals, smoothies, or everything you eat for the next week.
