Homemade Peanut Butter...

Today, I stumbled upon this insanely easy recipe for homemade peanut butter. Seriously, it's ridiculously easy... odds are, you already have all the ingredients in your pantry!

Homemade Peanut Butter

Makes about 1 cup 
* Bakers note: This recipe is the easy version as it uses pre-roasted peanuts. To save money, you could purchase shelled, raw Spanish peanuts and roast them yourself by baking them in a 350 degree oven in a single layer on a sheet pan, sprinkled with salt, for 30-35 minutes. Once roasted and cooled, remove shells. Rub peanuts between your hands to remove skins, then throw them in a salad spinner to further remove skins.
  • 1 1/2 cups roasted peanuts (can use honey roasted, salted, or unsalted; see above for roasting at home)
  • salt (amount based on what peanuts you used, taste and adjust seasonings as necessary)
  • honey (amount based on what peanuts you used, taste and adjust as necessary)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil (optional)


  • Place nuts in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. 
  • With lid on, pulse the peanuts until they become a smooth and shiny butter, about 5 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. If it seems your peanuts aren't turning into a paste, slowly add the oil until incorporated and smooth. If peanuts turn into a paste easily, omit the oil. Taste, and adjust seasonings to your preference.Store peanut butter in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a month. Peanut butter may require stirring to redistribute oils.
