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

Let me show you how peanut butter is done. In less than 5 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 store-bought. In less than 5 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


  • 1 and 1/2 cups honey roasted peanuts (I like Planters or Trader Joes brand)
Special Equipment


  1. Pour peanuts into your food processor and pulse/process until the peanuts go from whole to coarsely chopped to crumbly to finely ground. If they aren't coming together easily, add up to 1 Tablespoon of oil such as canola oil, peanut oil, or vegetable oil. Process again until the peanuts resemble a thick and relatively smooth peanut butter.
  2. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. But it won't last that long!

  1. OMG! I’m going to dive on peanut butter tonight! Love your blog Sally! Keep baking! 🙂 *

    • i will! thank you so much

      • 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.

      • I bet your nut butter was fantastic!

  2. I think we have the same blender!
    This homemade peanut butter is a great idea. It will definitely make me feel less self conscious 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. 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 !

  4. 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 🙂

  5. I can’t wait to try this 🙂 I love this Bakerella recipe. Mmm Mmm mmm! They are such a perfect blend of peanut butter and chocolate.

    • ok Lizzie, i’m in love with this cookie recipe. i’m actually saving the recipe right now because i’m totally making them as soon as possible. yum! THANK YOU!

  6. I love that in four minutes you have this glorious PB to show for the time spent! Best use of 4 mins ever!

  7. Now I need to try making this AND all your other PB creations 😀
    How decadent!

    Happy Easter!

  8. Love the idea of using honey roasted peanuts to make peanut butter! YUMM!! I don’t think I’d be able to stop eating that stuff. Recently I made Pecan Butter which is delicious!! Here’s the link: http://digintobooks.wordpress.com/2012/04/02/pecan-pie-butter/.

  9. I too add chocolate to my peanut nutter… sometimes I even take a dark chocolate bar and dip it straight into the pb jar. Yum! Thank you for sharing!

  10. Ahhh butter! Not nutter… But nutter butters on the other hand are good too.

  11. I love to make my own peanut butter, almond butter and cashew butter when I go to gourmet grocery stores that have the machines that grind the nuts for you. Fun, fresh and delicious!

  12. 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.

    • YES Reeni. i should make your peanut buter cup pie. it’s definitely on my recipe bucket list! god knows if i can make it look as pretty as the original though 🙂

  13. Wow – I never knew it was that simple. I’m definitely going to give this a try. your peanut recipes look fab!

  14. I love making homemade PB. It’s the best!

  15. I was going to make the homemade peanut butter! How long do you think it will be good for? I’m not sure how much to make!


    • I am going to say up to 3 weeks in the fridge. Mine did not last that long at all! It is very addicting 🙂

      Try making the 1 cup that the recipe calls for first. You will eat it up quickly, i swear!

  16. I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of the PB and chocolate combo!

  17. I truly need to start making my own peanut butter. Thanks for always inspiring.

  18. Wow. I never tried to make peanut butter at home but after seeing your recipe. I’ll definatly try to make it. My kids love peanut butter on toast. Thanks.

  19. Hey Sally, I love your blog and I’m so excited to make this peanut butter!! Just wondering how and how long you store the leftovers?

    • Hey Brittany! I am so glad to hear that – store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. It won’t last that long, I promise. 🙂

  20. How long does it last and does it have to be refrigerated? I want to try it for my kids to get them away from the processed stuff. Thanks

  21. 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!

  22. 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. 🙂


  23. 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!

  24. Did you use the little ninja… I have that! So would b nice if I knew it would b turning out like yours 🙂

  25. 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!


  26. When I made this it didnt go creamy 🙁 i put in a little bit of oil but it didn’t help either. Any reason why Sally?

    • 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!

  27. 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 .

  28. 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

    • Peanut Butter & Company! They have the beeeeesssst peanut butter flavors Jamie Lee, you are right. I may just give it a whirl myself. Stay tuned 😉

      • Yes, yes, yessss! That Peanut Butter & Co is so darn good. Definitely staying tuned. Or stalking. As always.

  29. 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!

  30. I finally just made this today…WHY did I wait so long?!?!? OMG this is SO yummy I had to make a second batch because I seriously ate half of it after I made it.
    Thanks, Sally!

  31. Can you also make this with unsalted peanuts and do they have to be toasted?

    • They do not have to be roasted. I suggest adding some salt, to taste.

      • Thank you Sally. I ended up roasting my peanuts in the over for about 10 minutes and then tossed them into the foodprosesor and then just like you said magic happend. I added some seasalt and a bit of honey near the end. It looks just like storebought, but taste very pure.

  32. Hey there !!!

    I was wondering if I could use homemade peanutbutter in peanutbutter cookies ?!? I like the idea of knowing whats in my peanutbutter 🙂

  33. It looked creamy at about three minutes in my food processor, but it turned out to be grittier than I anticipated–but still yummy. Does it get smoother if I keep it going longer? Also, do you use those canisters of honey-roasted nuts or another version?  Overall, this is ingenious!

  34. Could I add pumpkin pie spice to the PB mixture?

  35. Hi Sally, I was just wondering about your home made peanut butter – do you use regular honey roasted peanuts or dry roasted honey peanuts?  Also, do you sell vanilla beans – I thought I had seen something a while ago about you selling some things, but now I cannot find it.  What are the best vanilla beans to use?  It is rather confusing if you have never used them before.             Thanks,   Donna

    Love your site!!

    • Donna, I had a giveaway for vanilla on my blog a year or two ago. I don’t sell it. I usually buy vanilla beans from Whole Foods or a specialty store. I use regular honey roasted peanuts to make this (usually Trader Joes or Planters brand).

  36. Hi Sally, thanks for responding to my question about the peanuts.  Would you be so kind as to recommend the best vanilla bean to buy?  Tahitian or Madagascar?  I do not have a clue about them, but would like to give them a try.  Thank you.  Donna

  37. Wow!  I’ll never buy peanut butter agin!  I had no idea it could be this easy, or taste this good! Off to make your peanut butter cookies now.
