It’s easy and quick to make your own peanut butter. The taste difference is amazing!


Homemade peanut butter


  • 1 1/2 cups of roasted peanuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon of olive oil
  • salt to taste (optional and if you use salted peanuts you probably won’t need to add any)


  1. Process the peanuts in a food processor until finely chopped.
  2. While the processor is still mixing add the olive oil until well combined.
  3. Place peanut butter in a jar and store in the fridge.

Another option is to buy unroasted peanuts and roast them in the oven yourself before processing.

Try it out and let me know how you go. Please add your comment below.

    The store bought peanut butter seems to get oilier each time I buy it which has slowly started putting me off.
    This recipe is so simple also!
    Very excited to give this one a try!

  • OOOHHH. I’m excited to give this a whirl. My kids love peanut butter, and these instructions are so easy. Another source of preservatives and additives minimised.


  • Excellent timing? I’ve been buying ready made peanuts only peanut butter, but talking about making my own. Now I know how. Not sure if the 1/2 tsp of olive oil is really needed tho


  • I love peanut butter, but the store bought versions have so much oil and preservatives. This is a great idea! Thank you so much for sharing! :)
