Homemade Chai Peanut Butter
2 cups dry roasted peanuts, unsalted or lightly salted
1 tablespoon P.S. Flavor!™ Mai Chai
1-2 tablespoon honey, if desired
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, if desired
1-2 tablespoons peanut or other oil, if desired
Place the peanuts into a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Pulse a few times just until chopped. For chunky peanut butter, remove ½ cup of chopped nuts and set aside.
Process for 1 minute. Stop and scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl. The mixture will look gritty and dry, like coarse salt.
Process for another minute, then stop and scrape down the sides. At this point, the mixture will be shiny and softened, but not yet peanut butter!
Sprinkle Mai Chai over the top, and the honey, salt and oil, if using. And then process an additional 1-2 minutes until it’s completely smooth and spreadable. Taste and add more spice, salt or honey if needed. If you reserved some nuts for chunky peanut butter, add them now and pulse a few times to combine.
Transfer to a storage container and cover. It’s ready to enjoy!
