Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

This is like P2B, a powdered peanut butter you reconstitute with water. It has no added oil. I add a little honey or sugar-free syrup to it for toast. Submitted by:

You can also buy no-stir natural peanut butter! And it isn't that expensive! Doesn't require refrigeration. I accidently came acrossed it at WalMart. It is very good! I am diabetic & needed some that had no added sugar! Submitted by:

I always read the list of ingredients on the container. If there is any thing in the peanut butter but peanuts and a small amount of salt I do not buy it.
Have been making my own peanut butter for years. My recipe is so similar to yours that I do not have to make. I add oil if the peanuts are dry.

I have made peanut butter without oil or salt. I used a regular blender. That peanut butter would have less calories, fat, or sodium. Submitted by:

I sometimes make my own peanut and or almond butter using unsalted roasted nuts. I add flaxseed. I throw it in the Vita Mix and whir away! And you really do not need the oil. There is enough in the nuts. I love warm peanut butter on my apples, celery or anything. Nuke it if it's no warm :-) YUM!! Submitted by:

Love this idea! May I ask a question? It states that this recipe is 1 serving, but at the bottom of the recipe itself, it says it makes 8 (2tbsp) servings. Wouldn't this change the calorie count if you changed the 1 to an 8? Submitted by:

I make this regular now. No extra peanut oil needed (why adding fat when the ingredients are already high in fat?). Much better than even the fresh ground we do at the store. Submitted by:

Do not think I will try making this unless there is a shortage of BP on the supermarket shelf. I will stick with my PC Organics crunchy PB for 200 calories per 2 Tblsp. Submitted by:

Check out PB2. It is an all natural powdered peanut butter with 45 calories for 2 T. It turns into peanut butter when you add water or oil. It goes great in smoothies. Since peanut oil makes me break out and I love the stuff, this is a great alternative for me. It goes great in smoothies. Submitted by:

Wow... how does this have more calories than commercial natural peanut butter? I'm going to be trying this along with the other nut butter recipes available... when I can afford to. Til then, I'll stick with my Jif. Submitted by:

I only used a little bit of olive oil, to help with the texture. I also added 1 tsp of honey and 1 tsp of cinnamon. I did use the salt, since I used no salt peanuts.

The texture is a bit grainy, I think my processor is not strong enough to make it smooth. Also a bit salty, but still good.

This is a fantastic idea. However, I replaced the peanuts with almonds, which are healthier, skipped the salt and cheated, with a little honey. Submitted by:

I've always found that it works fine to use only peanuts too. It is much more flavorful than store bought versions and has less sugar. I find I usually need a bit less too, which is a bonus! Submitted by:

Why is there so less calories and everything else including protein in this than in the Skippy Natural Super Chunk? Their ing. are roasted peanuts, sugar, palm oil and salt. 2T yields 190 cal., 17 fat., 6 carb., 2 fiber and 7 protein. Submitted by:

The calories calculated are not even close. The calories were calculated using .25 cup of peanuts, not 2 cups. Two cups of peanuts alone equals more than 1550 calories. Submitted by:

Nutritional info is quite misleading as 1/2 a tsp of salt would be 1180 mg, over half a days supplement. Is it 1 or 8 servings?

I have a Co-op that I belong to and they have machines setup with Almonds, Cashews and Peanuts that grinds the nuts into nut butters. No added salt or oils and it is super yummy. I also don't have to do the work at home. Keep in the Fridge so it doesn't go rancid. My nieces even eat this. Submitted by:

I'm curious about the calorie content. The recipe says it's a 2 tablespoon serving for 28.6 calories? The natural peanut butter i buy only has peanuts and salt in it and 2 tablespoons is 200 calories. How is this so much lower?

Yeah, I agree with some folks here who say omit the oil. No matter what type of nuts you're using, they have their own oil. Homemade nut butters are the best because you can control the sodium and the texture to taste. Submitted by:

I am going to try this w/the shelled pistachios I buy @ Costco! I have to watch my fats/sugars, too (diabetic) so this is the perfect way to make peanut butter that's good for me! I use a dab in my oatmeal daily. Really good! Will use olive oil, though. Submitted by:

For those worried about fat content, leave your pb sit out for a few weeks, pour off the oil that rises to the top. this will give you a VERY firm pb but less oil. If you mash in some yogurt or fat low fat magarine you'd have a spread with lower fat. store in fridge. HTH Submitted by:

Actually if you care to take the time salted in the shell peanuts can be used without any added oil. Shell them, skin them and blend them, result peanut butter. Simple but a bit messy taste A test you can do is to shell and skin the peanuts then mash some with the back of a spoon and taste. Submitted by:
