Homemade Peanut Butter w/flax

24 oz. organic, canned peanuts low or no salt
1/2 cup ground flaxseeds
Most of the time you will not need any oil.  If you do, you will only have to use 1 tsp olive or flaxseed oil max.
If you prefer a sweeter peanut butter, then you can add stevia extract or agave nectar to taste, but omit any extra oil to prevent it from getting runny.

Process above ingredients in food processor until smooth.  May take about 10 minutes to get nice and smooth.  Of course, if you like chunky peanut butter stop processing when it reaches the consistency that makes you happy.  This stores in the fridge for up to 2 months.  We eat it up before that long around here. 

Add in Cacao Nibs for a rich chocolate version.
Try with differents nuts.  Sunflower Seeds, Pumpkin Seeds, Cashews, Almonds, Hazelnuts, Soybeans, and Macadamias are all tasty options.
