Recently I was getting a lot of comments from people on social media who said that something I made was already vegan, so there was no point in making it from scratch.
Well….blow me over with a feather! I don’t understand this viewpoint at all. Just because I can buy something ready-made doesn’t mean I should never make it myself!
Case in point, I can get oatmeal cookies right off the shelf here that happen to be vegan, but I still bake my own oatmeal cookies! Why? Well because homemade is something special and the store-bought version of oatmeal cookies might be pretty good but they don’t hold a candle to my homemade version.
And if that viewpoint held up – there’s no point to making something if you can buy it – then I don’t know why all the non-vegans bake at all, cos they can get everything!
So no – that just doesn’t make sense!
And here I go again with another recipe for something you can easily pick up off any supermarket shelf – homemade peanut butter!
Now why would you make your own peanut butter you might (or might not) ask? Well…. it’s super easy, fun and uniquely delicious!
I buy peanut butter all the time, we go through tons of the stuff in my house, but this homemade version was still something special.
And when you make your own stuff, that yes, you can easily buy, well there’s an extra sense of pride and specialness about it.
This homemade peanut butter is a super simple recipe containing just 3-ingredients. And while I say ‘just’ maybe you’re thinking: ‘why so many…. it’s peanuts and….?’. Well it’s peanuts and a little oil to make it a bit smoother and a bit of (optional) sugar to balance the salty with some sweet.
