Amazing homemade peanut butter in less than 5 minutes

by Mars

Making homemade peanut butter is one of the easiest thing you can do in the kitchen. Trust me. This is recipe is a winner.

I love peanut butter and I’m always astounded by the price of it in supermarkets given how simple (and cheap) it is to make.

Here’s all you need:

  • Two cups of roasted or dry roasted peanuts – your choice
  • One tablespoon olive, peanut or canola oil
  • Food processor

In terms of the peanuts, if they’re salted it’s fine you’ll just have slightly saltier (and less healthy) peanut butter. Unsalted peanut butter can be a bit bland. And yes, ordinary supermarket peanuts will do just fine. I also add a tablespoon of oil to get it going.

Here’s the process. First, measure out two cups of peanuts. This, when finished, will yield about one and a half cups of peanut butter.

Put both cups of peanuts in the food processor with the oil of your choice.

Turn the food processor on and leave it running at a low speed (2 or 3 on our Kenwood) for 2-3 minutes.

You’ll see the peanuts transform into crumbs. As the processor keeps working, you’ll see the nuts turn into a smooth and creamy liquified peanut butter.

You can keep processing for longer if you want it really smooth or stop at around 3 minutes if you want more texture.

This is what my peanut butter looks like. It’s a bit runny because when you blitz it in the processor it gets really warm and becomes viscous.

At this stage, I transfer it to a container and it goes in the fridge. This allows it to set and take on the peanut butter texture we all know.

I keep the peanut butter in the fridge when I use and eat it because it’ll keep longer – typically around two weeks.

That’s it. Delicious homemade peanut butter in less than five minutes. It’s that simple.
