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!

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

    • Sally on January 20, 2015 at 9:27 am

      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.

    Hey there !!!

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

    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!

    • Sally on June 8, 2015 at 8:23 pm

      Mollie, yes if you keep processing it– the PB will get smoother.

    Could I add pumpkin pie spice to the PB mixture?

    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!!

    • Sally on December 8, 2015 at 3:30 pm

      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).

  6. Donna G. on December 9, 2015 at 10:32 am

    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

    • Sally on December 9, 2015 at 12:57 pm

      I looooove Tahitian.

  7. RobynCowling on March 20, 2016 at 8:24 am

    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.

    i jus tried it, very cool and tasty. thanks

    Hi Sally! 
    Could you use coconut oil instead of vegetable/canola oil?

    • Sally on July 10, 2017 at 11:36 am

      A liquid oil (that doesn’t solidify at room temp) is best.
