Homemade peanut butter allows you to control the ingredients you put into your body.

As a nut butter, peanut butter is a healthier option than dairy milk butter. Peanut butter is a low-carbohydrate food that contains a good amount of plant protein and a heart-healthy ratio of unsaturated fats (PUFAs and MUFAs) to saturated fats. It is also a good source of several minerals, especially magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and zinc.

Making peanut butter at home is a breeze—it takes just a few ingredients and a few minutes. It is preservative free and much cheaper than the store-bought version.

I recommend preparing only a week's worth at a time so that it's always fresh. A fresh batch takes just a few minutes to make. Always store it in the refrigerator for maximum freshness.

I like to use honey as a sweetener, but you can omit this ingredient if you prefer. I hope you give this recipe a try!

  • 150 grams roasted, salted peanuts (or use unsalted peanuts if preferred)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey (optional)


  1. In a grinder or food processor, grind the roasted peanuts a few times on pulse mode until finely ground.
  2. Give a couple of more pulses until the oil starts to ooze out.
  3. Add the olive oil. Blend again, using slightly longer pulses, until the peanut butter is smooth and creamy.
  4. If you are using honey, add it now. Give a few pulses until it is well mixed.
  5. Transfer the peanut butter to a bowl and let it cool down; then transfer it again to an airtight bottle.
  6. Store the peanut butter in the refrigerator. It will keep well for 1 month.
