Homemade Peanut Butter

  • Author: Jacqui

  • Yield: 2 cups 1x


Homemade peanut butter is so easy to make. With a high powered blender or food processor you’ll have smooth, creamy and perfectly spreadable high protein peanut butter in no time.


  • 4 cups raw organic shelled peanuts
  • 1/4 cup neutral oil like avocado oil or coconut oil (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the raw peanuts without overlapping. Roast for 10 minutes.
  2. Allow roasted peanuts to cool completely, then transfer to your blender or food processor.
  3. High speed blender: Place the lid on your container and replace the cap with the tamper. Blend on high, using the tamper tool to coax the nuts into the blades. It will take about 2-2 1/2 minutes to achieve smooth peanut butter.
  4. Food processor: Place the lid on your container and blend, stopping periodically to scrape down the sides of the container with a silicone spatula. It will take about 4 minutes to achieve smooth peanut butter.
  5. Transfer the peanut butter to a glass jar with a tight fitting lid.


  • Your peanut butter will last up to 6 months in the fridge or 1 month in a cool, dark cupboard or pantry. 
  • You can always add a pinch of salt, honey or vanilla. Just be sure to do so after the peanut butter has been fully blended.
