This peanut butter doesn’t need jelly. I love jelly, spread lightly on a warm piece of bread and served on something that looks rustic. But this homemade peanut butter is so creamy and deliciously nutty, there is no need for any kind of “and”. Just peanut butter.

Speaking of “just”, making this delicious homemade peanut butter requires “just” three ingredients. Peanuts. Salt. And, if you like, honey.

I grind the peanuts in our blender. Our blender is pretty heavy-duty, but we’ve found that a food processer works really well too. Just drop the peanuts in and turn it on. A low setting works best.

After a little while, the peanuts will grind themselves into small little pieces. At this point, you need to just keep grinding.

Eventually, the peanuts will start to release their oils, and the whole thing gets creamy. It’s like magic. I usually need to stop the blender and use a spatula to mix things around to keep the whole thing mixing. After the peanuts get creamy and start doing that blender thing where they mix and turn over and it looks a little like whirlpool, I add the honey and the salt and turn the blender back on to let it all mix together. That’s it!

I prefer to buy unsalted, roasted peanuts. This lets me add the right amount of salt. Plus I get to taste the peanut butter as I’m making it, just to make sure I get the salt right. It usually takes a lot of tastes, but I know I’m doing it in the name of perfect peanut butter 🙂

Super creamy, super easy homemade peanut butter sweetened with honey and finished off with a touch of salt.
Servings 10 -16
Author 2Teaspoons

Ingredients

  • 1 lb unsalted roasted peanuts
  • Salt to taste I use about ½ teaspoon
  • Honey to taste I use about 1 tablespoon

Instructions

  1. Place peanuts in a food processor or a powerful blender.
  2. Turn blender on low and let peanuts grind until they form soft peanut butter, scraping down sides as needed, about 3-5 minutes. During this process the peanuts will first turn gritty then start to form a soft peanut butter as they release their oils. Add salt and honey to taste and stir in by hand or by turning blender back on briefly.
  3. Remove peanut butter from blender and either enjoy immediately or store in an air-tight container in the frig.

    This is delicious! And thanks for the idea to make my own peanut butter, it’s not that I thought I couldn’t but that I’d never thought about it before.

      Hi Mary! I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the peanut butter! I remember thinking the same thing…I never thought to make it from scratch at first either, but then once I did I had no idea why it never occurred to me before 🙂

      Thanks Jessica! You should definitely give it a try. I was worried the first time I made homemade peanut butter, but it really is super easy. We make a new jar of it almost every week 🙂

      Maureen, you should totally give peanut butter and honey a try! I tried it for the first time about 8 years ago and have never turned back 🙂
