There’s this joke about Pinterest on how everything is only good to see, and nothing ever gets translated into real life. That’s not entirely true. I’ve come across some brilliant fitness ideas, recipes, fashion ideas on the multiple boards.
This recipe is another beautiful discovery from one of the food boards. Very few ingredients and minimal time taken means it’s simple enough to make each time a bottle gets empty, elegant enough to be a part of a gourmet gift basket or a simple gift for family and friends.
You do need a mixer or a food processor though. It will make many nutritious yet yummy sandwiches for kids (and adults). The evening I made this, I was afraid I will lick this clean straight from the mixer. Scary!
Check my video on how to make a basic peanut butter – no fancy ingredients or equipment required.
I usually make my own peanut butter, but the two additional ingredients definitely add a gourmet twist to good ol’ peanut butter. Coconut oil, used in South India for centuries, got a bad rap over the last few years for being a saturated fat (solidifies at room temp) but it’s back in the ranks of healthy food.
Organic cold pressed coconut is being consumed raw by the tablespoon by many a Hollywood star. Make sure you use a good quality coconut oil for this. It is of course optional, but it adds LOADS of flavour to the butter.
