Homemade Honey Roasted Peanut Butter.

The best homemade peanut butter is so easy to make. You’ll always want to have a batch around, trust me!

Homemade Honey Roasted Peanut Butter - 1 ingredient, so simple! by sallysbakingaddiction.com

Let me show you how peanut butter is done. In less than 4 minutes. With 1 ingredient.

If you’ve been reading for awhile, you already know that I have a slight obsession with peanut butter. I tried to see how long I could go without eating it a few weeks ago. I lasted less than 4 hours. Who was I kidding?

For all my recipes, I typically use Jif Creamy. I grew up on Jif.  It’s my very favorite.  Recently, however, I’ve been making my own peanut butter.

 

It is SO good. So simple and so much cheaper by volume than storebought.  In less than 4 minutes, and with only ONE ingredient, you can have homemade peanut butter free of added oil, salt, and preservatives.

The recipe is so simple, I feel silly typing it out for you!

Homemade Honey Roasted Peanut Butter

Makes about 1 cup of peanut butter. Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 cups honey roasted peanuts*

Directions:

Process peanuts until the nuts go from coarsely chopped to finely ground. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed. Process again until the peanuts resemble a thick and relatively smooth peanut butter. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

* You may add 1-2 tablespoons of a neutral tasting oil (canola oil, peanut oil) during the blending process to make the peanut butter is extra creamy. This depends on your taste preference and/or if you are concerned with calories.

* If you have a food processor like mine, this whole process will only take about 4 minutes.

        Absolutely fantastic. I saw this recipe and tried it. Then, I made my own with Cashew nuts, Macadamia nut with Honey butter. I think I’m well and truly addicted now. I’ve made it for a few people I know and I think they worship me now. Thank-you ever so much. I think I’ll be seeing other recipe’s of your too.

    omg …you can make your own.. !??!! unfortunatly i don’t think the blade of my mixer would survive this :(
    I just ADORE peanut butter! being french, i discovered it quite “late” thanks to the movie “meet joe black” in which Brad Pitt tastes it for the first time. If Brad Pitt was doing it, I had to too ;-)
    I try not to buy too much of it though…so i don’t carry it around in my pocket with a spoon…
    But when i do I love to do the chocolate cupcakes with a peanut butter topping. Pretty classic.
    But i’m pretty sure anything covered in peanut butter would taste delicious !

    I’m a bit of a weird one when it comes to dipping things in peanut butter, for example love dipping carrot or red pepper in it. Smarties are also amazing with a cheeky scoop of Mr Peanut on top, tastes just like a Reece’s piece!Love your peanut butter recipes :)

    You should make peanut butter cups! Or peanut butter pie. Or peanut butter cookies. Heehee. I love peanut butter too! I go through stages where I can’t get enough and then I don’t eat it for a few days then I can’t get enough again.

    Chef Rochaposted November 21, 2013 at 8:44 pm

    Thought I’d share my own little obsession for peanut butter, but I use macadamia nuts!

    The butter comes out much smoother in a food processor, and I add honey butter as an emulsifier, so to speak.

    Also, one way to add unique flavors to a peanut butter, make your own roasted flavors using this trick.

    Preheat oven to 325ºF. Whisk an egg white with any blend of seasonings you want, be it curry, white pepper, sea salt, or even pumpkin pie spice…as long as you add a table spoon of powdered sugar…..
    Whisk until frothy and then toss about a pound of your chosen nut(or blend there of) and coat evenly.

    Scatter on a baking sheet and then roast in the oven, stirring quite often until fragrant and dry, about 20-25 minutes.

    If you can avoid just popping these into your mouth, process them into an amazing and tasty nut butter!

    We tried peanut butter a few times when we were kids, but nothing significant. I am one who does not usually like peanut butter in anything but the jar (or a Reese’s or two), but I made a delicious peanut butter bar last week and had to keep away from the fridge for fear of eating more and more. Colour me shocked! :) But my honey and I were planning just a couple days ago to make our own peanut butter as it’s expensive here in Barbados. I’m on it now! Thanks! I’ll report back. :)

    Hey… does this end up being creamy. My favorite peanut butter is jiff creamy natural peanut butter. I used to love skippy..but then my aunt had me try jiff. . I never ever went back to skippy..even if it was on sale! Lol. If I want it creamier…could I add a little more honey? Does it give it a little sweet taste also…mm.. I cant wait!

      Hi Jennifer – yep, this is creamy as long as you process it for a good while. I like it sort of grainy, but process it for as long as you want to achieve a smoother texture. It really doesn’t need honey since it’s already so sweet from the honey roasted peanuts. Though you could add some if you wanted!

    Hey Sally! I was looking through your vegan recipes and noticed this recipe. Although it looks absolutely delicious, I just wanted to give you a heads up that honey isn’t vegan : (. If you wanted to make this recipe vegan, though, you could easily use regular peanuts and add some agave nectar to them! Hope this helped!

      Were your peanuts dry roasted? Or did you use oily honey roasted peanuts? Either way, I’m surprised a little oil didn’t help. Perhaps another Tbsp will get things moving. Enjoy!

    I made what I consider a major discovery today I was looking for a recipe for peanut butter oatmeal cookies and I came across your recipe but more important was the process for making peanut butter. I have been buying peanut butter for more years than I care to reveal but have never found any as tasty as the P.B. that I made with your process . I will never buy P.B. again. Thank you very much .

    Hi Sally! So I know your obsession with raisins…have you ever considered {or will you??} making a cinnamon raisin peanut butter? There’s some company, can’t remember the name of it of course, that makes the white chocolate peanut butter, dark chocolate, and cinnamon raisin peanut butter but I can’t bring myself to pay for it. Clearly I could experiment withthis myself but I trust you waaaaay more than me. Please, please!! XO. Jamie Lee

    Hi Sally,

    Thanks for your dedication to peanut butter. I just made the flourless peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, and they’re beyond amazing. I don’t think it even needs the small amount of sugar.

    For the homemade peanut butter, can I use a regular blender like a Vitamix?

    Again, thanks!
