Friends, consider this your guide to the easiest homemade peanut butter.
You all know I can’t get enough of peanut butter—and this recipe is made on a monthly (or perhaps weekly) basis in our home.
It is so simple—requiring just 1 (or 2) ingredients, and comes together in only 10 minutes.
Let’s get blending! Today we’re making some Easy Homemade Peanut Butter!
This nut butter starts with simple roasted peanuts. The flavor of roasted peanuts is rich, earthy, and tastes great with any dish (or just by the spoonful). If your nuts are not salted, add a pinch of sea salt—if they are salted, proceed to the blending.
Wait it out my friends—the creamiest nut butters take patience. The texture of the mixture in your food processor will change from a powder texture to a thick mixture, to a smooth, creamy butter.
And thats it! Making homemade peanut butter is that easy! Plus, you can control the texture, salt content, and save money.
I hope you LOVE this easy homemade peanut butter! It is:
Easy to make
& so Delicious!

Easy Homemade Peanut Butter
- 2 cups roasted peanuts
- pinch sea salt if nuts are unsalted
- Add peanuts and a big pinch of sea salt (if using) to high speed food processor*. Blend on high for about 10 minutes. During this time, the nut butter will become powdery, then for a thick mixture, and then become a smooth, creamy butter.
- Scoop peanut butter into a small, sealed jar. Nut butter will last for up to 3 months at room temperature or refrigerated for up to 6 months. I prefer refrigerating my homemade nut butter as it prevents the natural separation which simply requires stirring the oils back into the nut butter.
