This 5-minute homemade peanut butter is so EASY! Prepare this creamy nut butter with just ONE ingredient and a blender or food processor. Enjoy it on oatmeal, toast, smoothie bowls, and more.



Peanut Butter

Optional Add-Ins

  • 12 tbsp sweetener (sugar, coconut sugar, maple syrup)
  • 12 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 12 tbsp seeds (hemp, chia, ground flaxseed)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Peanut oil (if needed when using other add-ins)


  1. Add peanuts and salt to a food processor or high-powered blender (like a Vitamix).
  2. Pulse the peanuts for 1 minute. They will form into a dry, crumbly, and gritty flour. Scrape down the sides of the container with a spoon or rubber spatula. Process the peanuts again for 2-3 minutes. It will start to form into a thick paste. Continue pulsing/blending for 1-2 minutes. Eventually, the peanuts will form into a smooth and creamy butter. If you are including add-ins, add them now and blend together until smooth.
  3. Transfer peanut butter to a lidded jar or container.


  • Omit the salt if you’re already using salted peanuts.
  • StoreĀ peanut butterĀ in the refrigerator. It will keep for several weeks.
