In all honesty, peanut butter one of the simplest, most scrumptious foods on the planet and kids LOVE it.  That makes it the perfect food for any mom to keep on hand.  Unfortunately, as with so many processed and commercialized foods these days, you may find some weird ingredients and a TON of sugar in your favorite brand.

Homemade Peanut Butter: Easier Than You’d Think!

You may have never even considered making your own because it sounds difficult.  However, in reality, it’s as easy to make as it is downright tasty!

That’s it!  That’s really all that there is to it… and you know exactly what is in it… nuts, salt, honey and oil.  Making your own peanut butter is a GREAT way to “eat clean” and save some money.  Especially if your kids love it, it is nice to know that it is made from wholesome ingredients and that there aren’t any weird chemicals hidden on the label.
