Tell Me About this Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter

  • Texture: This nut butter is creamy and mostly smooth. It has a nice little texture boost from the raisins, which aren’t rock solid. It’s all very spreadable and spoonable.
  • Flavor: Nutty, of course, with honey and cinnamon flavors. Have you ever had Peanut Butter & Company Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter? It’s like a homemade version of that!
  • Ease: The process is beyond easy – into the blender and into the refrigerator. (Ok, who are we kidding? Into your mouth.)
  • Time: This homemade peanut butter will take you 5 minutes tops.

Use a Blender or Food Processor

To process the peanuts into a smooth consistency, you need something high-powered. We usually use this blender/chopper for making nut butters at home. For a blender recommendation, we use and love the Vitamix.

  • Note: No matter which processor or blender you use, homemade peanut butter will always be a little grainier than commercially processed.

Use Honey Roasted Peanuts

Why those and not plain peanuts, you ask? Well, this flavored peanut butter is sweet, so you’ll want the sweetness from honey roasted peanuts. Trust me, they make the best peanut butter.

A couple notes:

  • Instead of honey roasted peanuts, you can use dry roasted plain peanuts and add 1 Tablespoon of honey. If your peanuts are unsalted, add a pinch of salt (or to taste).
  • Interested in almond butter? You’ll love this salted maple roasted almond butter too.

Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Peanut Butter

  • Author: Sally
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 and 1/2 cups 1x
  • Category: Snacks
  • Cuisine: American


3 ingredients and 5 minutes are all you need to make this lip-smackin’ cinnamon raisin swirl peanut butter at home. Grab a spoon.


  • 1 and 1/2 cups honey roasted peanuts*
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 heaping teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. First, make sure you have a quality food processor/blender. See my suggestions above.
  2. In the food processor, pulse the peanuts until the nuts go from coarsely chopped to finely ground. Stop and scrape down the sides as needed. Keep pulsing until the peanuts resemble a thick and relatively smooth peanut butter. This will take a couple straight minutes of processing. Add the raisins and cinnamon and pulse gently a few times until mixed.
  3. Taste the peanut butter and add more cinnamon or raisins if desired.
  4. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.


  1. Peanuts: Instead of honey roasted peanuts, you can use dry roasted plain peanuts and add 1 Tablespoon of honey before you start processing. If your peanuts are unsalted, add a pinch of salt before processing. (Or add to taste.)
  2. Oil: You can add 1 Tablespoon of a neutral tasting oil (canola oil, peanut oil) during the blending process if your nuts aren’t processing. Usually honey roasted peanuts have a little extra oil in their coating which makes them easy to process. I never add oil.

Reader Questions and Reviews

  1. Sally……This Cinnamon PB is so delectable …….I had to sit on my hands to prevent myself from eating the whole batch……..I cannot wait to share with my little grandkids…..Thanks

  2. Wow! This Peanut Butter is amazing. Never even heard of Cinnamon & Raisin Peanut Butter. I had to make both this and the plain Honey Roasted. Had to restrain myself from eating it all before my husband came home!!! I think I’ll definitely be making this as gifts for friends and family in the future. Thank you for another great recipe!

  3. How much does this make? Just trying to figure outfought how many servings to so I. Can figure out  the calories/fat.  Otherwise I may eat the whol jar. Sounds delish!!!!

  4. Hi,

    I was wondering if you have the 400W Ninja Master Prep? I want to buy one so I can make my own peanut butter, too! Thank you!

  5. Hi Sally, This peanut butter recipe is the first thing I have ever made on my own. I love the taste of it and I will actually eat fruit with it! My problem is that it seems to be ok when I put it in the Jar, when I use it the next day it is all dry and flakey and sad. I tried putting in Peanut oil but it didn’t seem to help much. When do you put in oil if needs be?
    Again, LOVED the taste of it so so much!

    1. Hey Michelle! I usually add oil as it’s mixing. Is it creamy when you’re finished making it? Maybe blend it up more and use more oil.
