Even simply glancing at the photographs of this homemade peanut butter makes me hungry! Recently, Jack and I have been cooking nonstop, producing our tortillas, bagels, pasta, and more.

Recipe Advice for peanut butter
Have you ever wanted to make peanut butter? Before you begin, you should be aware of the following:
- This recipe is simple to make, but patience is needed. Before the nuts are smooth and spreadable, your food processor will need to operate for about ten minutes, breaks included.
- You’ll have to pause the food processor frequently. It can be difficult on a food processor’s motor to make homemade nut butter, so make careful to pause it every 30 to 60 seconds to let it cool. Also, a perfect time to clean the bowl’s sides is during this pause.
- You should use proportionately as many peanuts as your food processor can handle. In my 7-cup food processor, I put 3 cups of peanuts. To make a spread that is smooth and creamy, you will need additional nuts if yours is much larger.
- Other than salt and dry-roasted peanuts, you don’t need anything. In this recipe, you can use salted or unsalted peanuts, but if yours aren’t, you’ll need to add salt at the end to taste.
Making Peanut Butter
The peanuts should be added to the food processor bowl and processed until extremely smooth, pausing about every 30 seconds to scrape down the bowl’s edges.
It might not seem as though the peanuts would blend into a smooth nut butter when you first begin to ground them. But I have faith they will! I’ll assure you that you don’t need to add any vegetable oil.
They will first be large.
They’ll then roll up into a shaggy ball.
They’ll eventually combine to create smooth natural peanut butter! Allow the food processor to run for as long as needed to achieve the desired level of smoothness.
It can be kept for up to a month in the refrigerator or at room temperature in an airtight jar. Enjoy!
Using homemade peanut butter
This homemade peanut butter may be used in so many different ways! Listed here are some of my favorites:
- Spread it on a piece of stale bread.
- Over a dish of oatmeal, granola, or overnight oats, drizzle it.
- Make your granola bars or energy balls with them as the binder.
- Create a zesty peanut sauce from it to use with bowls, spring rolls, or noodles.
- For a summer slaw, whisk together the peanut dressing.
- For more protein, add it to a smoothie.

- 3 cups dry roasted & salted or unsalted peanuts
- sea salt, to taste, (if using unsalted peanuts)
- The peanuts should be put in a medium food processor. Process until extremely smooth, pausing every 30 to 1 minute to scrape down the bowl’s edges as needed and give the food processor’s engine a rest. At first, the mixture will be clumpy. It will then start to thicken into a ball and eventually turn creamy and smooth. It should just take 8 to 10 minutes to complete the process.
