Snack #1: Homemade Peanut Butter with Sliced Apples

Yields 1.5 – 2 cups

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups organic unsalted, dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/4-1/2t salt
  • Apples, sliced

Directions:

  1. Add peanuts to bowl of a food processor.
  2. Turn on and scrape bowl as necessary to break up the large peanut butter ball until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy, 10-15 minutes.
  3. Add salt slowly, process, then taste test.  Repeat until desired saltiness is reached. Use a rubber spatula to scrape out and store in an airtight container.
  4. Serve with apples.
Compare this snack, with minimal sodium, no added sugar, and no artificial ingredients to a store-bought snack like Keebler peanut butter crackers, which has high sodium, high sugar, high levels of fat and calories, and is filled with artificial ingredients.
