Homemade Peanut Butter

3 May

I’m sure there are healthier ways of making peanut butter, but this one just takes four ingredients (peanuts, honey, peanut oil, salt) and it is soooo good.  We store it in the fridge and it lasts for a long time.


  • 15 ounces shelled and skinned roasted peanuts (or just buy already shelled dry roasted peanuts)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons peanut oil

Place the peanuts, salt and honey into the bowl of a food processor. Process for 1 minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Place the lid back on and continue to process while slowly drizzling in the oil and process until the mixture is smooth, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Place the peanut butter in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
