  • 16 ounces dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil use if you want creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey agave nectar, or sugar to sweeten if desired


  • Depending upon your food processor or heavy-duty blender times to process peanuts may vary. Place peanuts in the vessel. Process in a food processor for 1 to 2 minutes, check the consistency, and taste. Add salt, oil (if you want creamy peanut butter), and sweetener if desired.
  •  Process for an additional minute or two. If using a heavy duty blender like a Vitamix process or 1 minute and season with sugar, oil, and salt if desired. Process for an additional 30 seconds. I find if you use honey roasted peanuts they are almost perfectly seasoned.
