homemade peanut butter

For my birthday this year I got a food processor from Dyl and I can’t stop experimenting! We’ve been trying new things left and right. We continue to be amazed by what it can do. My favorite so far: peanut butter. Even if I never make anything else in my food processor, this makes it worth it. It takes a matter of minutes and makes you feel like a magician!IMG_2806


Prep time: 10 minutes
Servings: makes 1 cup


2 cups peanuts
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon sugar


Make it your own: Create a flavored peanut butter to go with whatever you’re eating! Add some cinnamon, honey or even chocolate! Use your imagination!



  1. Set up the food processor with the chopping blade and put the peanuts in the food processor.
  2. Pulse the food processor 5-10 times to chop the peanuts finely.
  3. Process on low for about 5 minutes until peanuts become creamy and smooth, stopping to scrape sides as necessary.
  4. Add sugar and salt a little bit at a time, pulsing to incorporate. Remember you can always add more, but you can’t take it out. During this step taste every time you add a little until it is how you like it. You may end up adding more or less then what I recommended!
  5.   Enjoy on sandwiches, dessert, fruit, or by the spoonful!


Tip: Make a few batches at once and save it in mason jars for the rest of the week. Also, you can use this process with almost any kind of nut – try making almond butter, cashew butter, or even sunflower butter!FullSizeRender
