Learn how to make your own homemade honey roasted peanut butter with this easy recipe! You only need a couple of ingredients and less than ten minutes to make this simple homemade version.
I realized the other day that I’ve posted quite a few recipes that use peanut butter. Then it hit me.. I’ve never posted about how to make peanut butter! Believe it or not, it’s extremely easy to make your own peanut butter right at home. All you need are some peanuts, a little oil (if you prefer it to be creamier), and a food processer or high speed blender. That’s it!
So, first things first. You want to use a good food processor or blender to get started. Then, toss some peanuts into the food processer. I prefer to use honey roasted because they have a better flavor and taste delicious. You can feel free to use more peanuts if you want more peanut butter (I used two cups for this recipe).
Next, set your food processer (or blender) on high and let it go! I always stop my food processer every minute or so to scrape the sides down and to give it a rest. I took a few pictures to give you an idea of what it looks like during the peanut butter process. Please don’t mind the fact that my backsplash doesn’t have any grout, we’re still remodeling our kitchen. Yes still, but that’s a story for another day.
Peanut butter perfection! I added about 1/2-1 tsp. of oil to mine to make it a little bit creamier. However, if you prefer it to be a little thicker you can simply leave out the oil. Easy enough right?!
You can store this homemade peanut butter in your fridge for 2-3 weeks. If it lasts that long.. it never does in our house.
- 2 cups honey roasted peanuts
- ½- 1 tsp. oil (canola or vegetable)
- Add peanuts to food processer or high speed blender and process, scraping down the sides as needed.
- If you prefer a creamier peanut butter, add in ½ - 1 tsp. of oil.
- Once the peanut butter has reached your desired consistency, transfer to an airtight container.
