When removing the shells of the peanuts, try to keep a good number of the red skins, as they are proven to have a lot of nutritional value, which adds to this being a delicious, healthy peanut butter recipe.

Removing the shells is a great activity to do together if you have kids – they love the crack of the shells and guessing how many nuts are inside each one.

This sugar free peanut butter recipe needs a food processer or good blender to get the right consistency. If you’re a gardener, the leftover peanut shells are a brilliant addition to compost.

This recipe works well as an unsweetened peanut butter, so it's great for a diabetic or keto diet. However, if you want a little sweetness that doesn’t overpower the peanut flavour, 1 teaspoon of honey will do the trick. Add more depending on how much of a sweet peanut butter you are used to.

To soften up the mixture and get that natural peanut butter texture, a little oil works very well.

I've used sunflower oil because it’s pretty much flavourless, but olive oil or rapeseed oil work great. Peanut oil is perfect for this recipe, if it’s available.

How smooth do you want your peanut butter? That comes down to how long you blend the mixture for in your food processer. Lots also love a smooth peanut butter and that’s easy! Simply keep the blender going, shaking and scraping every now and again, until the mixture finally gives in and turns into a lovely smooth peanut butter texture! Easy as that.

This no sugar peanut butter recipe goes so well with all sorts of sugar free recipes. We’ll soon be working on peanut butter cookies, which we’ll post soon, but in the meantime, you can use it as a spread, a cake topping, a dip - I think you’d be hard pressed to find something it doesn’t go with!

Store and enjoy this sugar free peanut butter for up to six months, but I very much doubt it will be hanging around for that long, especially if there are a few of you at home. We would be ready to make another batch within a couple of days!
