    To make crunchy peanut butter, add 1/3 cup of the roasted peanuts to a food processor. Pulse 6 to 8 times, or until the peanuts are chopped into small pieces. Transfer chopped peanuts to a bowl and reserve for later.

    Add your desired amount of salt and honey and process until combined. Check the consistency; if it seems too thick, add oil a teaspoon at a time, until desired consistency. For crunchy peanut butter,  stir in the reserved peanuts.
