Homemade Peanut Butter

  • 5 Minutes
  • Easy


  • Optional



Easy, 1-ingredient, 5-minute creamy homemade peanut butter!

Store-bought peanut butters use added and cheap oils, a crazy amount of sugar and other additives that are not healthy and unnecessary.

For the homemade version, all you need are some peanuts and a food processor. That is it!

You can use raw peanuts or roasted but I do not recommend salted.

Once the peanuts are added to the food processor, hit the on switch and watch it transform!

It starts out as nut flour then turns into a thick paste and finally a smooth peanut butter.

You can also add some sugar to make it sweeter or a bit of salt if you like it more savory.

Personally, I leave it plain. That way I can alter the taste for when I am ready to use it.

Nuts have always been known as “brain food” but they also contain other health benefits.

Peanuts are a good source of protein, low in carbs, and high in healthy fats.

Homemade peanut butter butter is fairly nutritious and provides many vitamins and minerals including vitamin E, vitamin B6, folate, and magnesium.

Spread the peanut butter onto some crusty bread with a drizzle of honey, use to make an asian peanut butter sauce, add to a smoothie, or make it into a dessert with chocolate!

Either way, it’s always good to have some peanut butter in your pantry.


This makes 8 ounces of peanut butter.

Get Your Food Processor

Add 2 cups of dry roasted peanuts to your food processor and blend on low for 3-4 minutes.

Stop the food processor and scrape down the sides, blend for another minute or until smooth and runny.

You can add sugar or salt then blend again for 30 seconds to incorporate well.

For the sugar, I recommend powdered sugar as it incorporates well. That way you are not left with sugar granules in your end product.

To make this creamy peanut butter crunchy, finely chop 1/4 cup of dry roasted peanuts are stir them in.

Store the peanut butter in a jar with an air-tight lid.

You can keep it in your pantry for 3-4 weeks or in the refrigerator for up to 4 months!
