  • Food processor or blender
  • Jar or airtight container with a lid


  • 2 cups dry, roasted peanuts unsalted
  • 1-2 tablespoon vegetable oil optional
  • 2 tablespoon agave syrup or maple syryp (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt optional


  • Begin by placing 2 cups of roasted unsalted peanuts in a food processor or high-powered blender. If you have unroasted peanuts at home, first, you need to roast them in the oven. After that, process for 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on the strength of your processor's motor. Stop and scrape the sides and the bottom while the motor is cooling off. If the equipment you use becomes hot and is struggling to work, let it rest and cool down. Process a few times for 30 seconds to 1 minute. At this moment, the peanut butter will look dry and chunky.

  • Next, the butter will start clumping together and form a sticky ball. At this point, you can add any sweetener like agave or maple syrup, vegetable oil, and salt. Continue to blend and stop as necessary until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy. Taste and add more salt or agave if you like. The whole process should last for about 7-10 minutes.
  • Finally, transfer your peanut butter in a jar or storage container with a lid at room temperature for 3-4 weeks or refrigerate it for up to 3 months. Enjoy it immediately while still warm and super creamy.
