Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place the peanuts into a food processor and process for a minute or so. The peanuts should be forming a ball. Continue processing, and check frequently to see if the peanut ball has oil on top. If not, keep mixing. If it does, pour in the vegetable oil, and process for 30 seconds, or until creamy. Add the honey, and process for another 30 seconds. If you want even creamier peanut butter, add another tablespoon of oil. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

I make this all the time. I use a 16 oz. jar of dry roasted unsalted peanuts 1 Tbsp. canola oil and 1/2 c. Splenda. You can use any type of nut you like. The more oily the nut the less oil you will need to add and vice versa. I've used cashews almonds walnuts and pecans. Sometimes I use a combination of all of them. That's when it tastes really good!! Update - lately I've been adding 1/2 to 1 tsp. of hazelnut flavoring to my peanut butter. It's very good! Read More

I followed the recipe exactly and expected a creamy though slightly chunky peanut butter but after it sat ten minutes it turned dry and crumbly though I added the stated oil amount? Maybe I did something wrong cuz everyone raved how great it was no one else mentioned crumbly. Anyway it really tasted good like the inside of a Reese cup so I may make somekinda dessert w/it but I can't spread it on bread. Sorry. Read More

I live in Japan and we cannot buy crunchy penut butter here. There are only skippy kinds of peanut butter. (very creamy and very sweet ones) They are OK but they are too sweet for me. I followed the recipe exactly. It tasted natual and not sweet at all. Perhaps I could add one more tbs of honey. A good thing about this recipe is you can make the peanut butter in any way you like.:D Read More

After having store bought peanut butter my whole life. I'm a little sad that I missed out on such great taste. Also I made mine with Olive Oil to try to health it up a bit. I will say this is absolutely the best peanut butter i've ever had. Read More

I will never buy a jar of peanut butter again! This was so Easy and Delicious!!! We like crunchy pb so I chopped some in the food processor first then added them to the finished product. Mmm...sooo GOOD! Thanks for this Amazing recipe! Update: Made this again using unsalted peanuts that I drizzled honey over then added about a half tsp of salt to and baked on a cookie sheet covered in tinfoil and sprayed with pam at 350 for 15 min. I let them cool then threw in the food processor mmm even better! Read More

Yum! I never knew that peanut butter could be made at home. I didn't really measure the ingredients just threw them together and this turned out yummy! Will definitely make again with other nuts as some other reviewers suggested. Will make again and again. Read More

The taste is really good although I had trouble trying to process it till it's fine. Perhaps I used the wrong type of food processor/ blade. Thanks for the recipe Amber! Read More
