    Cookgirl's Note:

    A Trader Joes' copycat recipe. Their version is unsweetened. You can add some sugar if you wish. The ratio of peanuts to flax seeds is about 75/25 but that is a wild guess. Being a copycat recipe all ingredients are estimated. Conveniently and luckily, I can find organic peanuts and flax seeds (from Bob's Red Mill) in bulk at our local natural food store.

    1. 1
      Roast the peanuts either on the stove top or in the oven until golden brown, adding the flax seeds the last 6-8 minutes of roasting. Be *very careful* not to burn the peanuts or flax seeds! Stir often! I would recommend stove top roasting with this step (a cast iron skillet being ideal). After roasting, set aside to cool slightly.
    2. 2
      Place the peanuts and flax seeds in a food processor or blender and blend to desired consistency adding a little bit of oil to help blend the butter smoothly. Season with salt, to taste. Optional: Add sugar if desired, to desired sweetness.
    3. 3
      Transfer the mixture to a container and cover (I use a recycled canning jar). We keep the nut/seed mixture refrigerated.
    4. 4
      Stir the nut/seed butter each time before spreading to distribute the oils.

      CG, this is seriously the best pb Ive ever made! The flax seed somehow tames the peanut flavour a bit so that the pb is perfectly balanced and even nuttier than without the flax. YUM!<br/>I didnt need any additional oil for blending. It came out super smooth.<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us!<br/>Made and reviewed for xour being VIP during Veggie Swap #57 April 2013.
