You don't need to wonder what's in the peanut butter when you make your own. This recipe, sent to me by a pair of USA WEEKEND readers, is great-tasting and health-promoting. Soybeans and peanuts help control blood sugar and contain antioxidants, as do olive oil and honey.

This recipe is a nice alternative even to alternative peanut butter. As an alternative to sugary peanut butter I've been getting just plain peanut butter from a grinder in the natural foods section of our grocery store. This recipe is more palatable and doesn't dry out like the peanut-only butter. This definitely gets two thumbs up from me and my kids! Read More

Let me start by saying I NEVER eat peanut butter unless it's wrapped in chocolate. I decided to make this recipe to use up roasted soy nuts that I had been given as a gift. I halved the recipe and let my six year old make the peanut butter. It tastes great as is but I would prefer a creamier spread. Next time I will use more honey and oil and process a bit longer.
