Making your own homemade peanut butter lets you control the ingredients & texture. This easy, money-saving recipe comes together in minutes!


Units Scale


  1. Pour the peanuts into the jar of your blender (or the bowl of a food processor) along with salt and sugar.
  2. Blend on high speed until it reaches your desired consistency, tamping as necessary. If you don't have a tamper (or you're using a food processor), stop the machine periodically and scrape down the sides of the container as needed.
  3. Transfer to a container and let fully cool before sealing and storing.


It will take a few minutes to get the peanuts to blend to your desired consistency. A high-speed blender will make the fastest work of it, and a food processor will take longer. Expect the process to take at least 3-5 minutes total.

Feel free to scale this recipe up or down, and adjust the sweetener and salt to your personal preferences.

If you're using a food processor to make your peanut butter, the process will take a little longer. You'll need to give your machine a few breaks to keep the motor from overheating.
