Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Add peanuts to a baking pan. Roast for 5 minutes, stir and roast for another 3 minutes. Allow them to cool for 5 minutes before adding to your food processor. **You may skip this step if you'd like BUT having the nuts roasted and warm is less work for the food processor**
Add slightly cooled but warm to the touch peanuts to your food processor. Process for 1 minute, scrape the sides of the bowl down. Process another 2 minutes, at this point it would of turned into a thicker paste. Process another 1-2 minutes or until the peanut butter is smooth. Add the salt at this point, if desired.
If consistency of the peanut butter is still slightly thick after processing for 5 minutes, add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to the mixture, or until it reaches your desired consistency.
