Homemade Peanut Butter (Two Ways)

Homemade peanut butter is the recipe I’m sharing today. If you like peanut butter you will enjoy making them yourself and you will love them better compare to the store-bought because you know what’s in it and you can control what you add and not. Homemade peanut butter is the best, the kids already all over it before I could say Jack. Not all my kids love chocolate so the two little munchkins that are chocolate lovers are always elated anytime I make it.

You only need four ingredients to make peanut butter except if you’re making chocolate peanut butter which is delicious and if you’re a chocolate lover then you need to try this out. All the listed ingredients can be adjusted to your preference.

I don’t like my peanut butter to be “overly” thick so in this recipe, you do you…lol if you want it thick don’t add oil, also the amount of honey could be adjusted. Make sure you store the finished product in a sterilized jar and you can see check How To Sterilize a Canning Jar.

Let’s get started!

  2. Place a saucepan/pan over medium-high heat, add the peanut and salt. Toast for a few minutes until the peanuts are lightly golden brown. You can also roast in the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, then place the peanut and salt into a baking sheet and roast until slightly golden brown about 5 minutes, shake it halfway done to roast completely. If you have any burnt peanuts remove them before proceeding.

  3. Add the roasted peanut into a food processor or a blender then process/ blend, first you will notice the nuts are grinding and look like a crumble. Continue to process for about 1-2 minutes, stop the machine in between especially if you’re using a blender so you don’t burn the engine.

  4. Use a spatula to scrape the sides of the food processor/ blender cup and continue to process for about 3 minutes until the peanuts are all processed, and smooth.

  5. Taste and if you need more salt then add more, and honey (as you desired), and continue to process.

  6.  Check the thickness and add oil if it’s too thick. I don't like my peanut butter to be very thick. So, check and adjust to your preference.

  7. If you’re making chocolate peanut butter before adding the oil add chocolate, confectioner sugar then process all for about 1 minute. If it’s too thick then add oil.

  8. If you want it crunchy simply toast some peanut or reserve some before processing then slightly crush then add to the peanut at the end of the process before storing.

  9. Serve with a slice of bread or with apple or celery sticks.
