Homemade Peanut Butter

  • 2 cups roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more as needed
  • 1-2 tablespoons peanut oil or other oil (optional, for creamier peanut butter)
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey or other sweetener (optional, for sweeter peanut butter)


Place peanuts in a food processor, and process for 1 minutes. Use spatula to loosen mixture from the sides of the bowl if the mixture is sticking. Then continue to process until completely smooth, about 2-3 more minutes. Add salt, oil and honey one tablespoon at a time if desired. Process for 1 minute. Transfer to an airtight container, cover and refrigerate until use. Peanut butter should keep for 3-4 weeks in the refrigerator. Stir each time before using. Makes 1-1/2 cups.
