I love peanut butter, and I seem to be eating a wee bit more since we’re on Marmite rations at our place. Unfortunately, many brands of peanut butters also contain added palm oil, listed in the ingredients as simply “vegetable oil”. The palm oil industry is having a negative effect on the environment, with rainforrests being cleared to make way for palm plantations, destroying the habitat of the orangutan.
I stumbled across this recipe for home made peanut butter over on the gorgeous blog A Beautiful Mess. There is also a recipe for home made Nutella style spread! I’m planning on trying out the peanut butter recipe this weekend, it looks easy and delicious. Take a look here to see how make your own palm oil free peanut butter.
