How to Make Peanut Butter (in only 5 minutes)

  • Author: Brandie Valenzuela


This post shows you how to make homemade peanut butter, which only takes about 5 minutes to make a delicious batch. It’s so easy and good that you’re going to wonder why you haven’t made it yet.


  • 16 ounces peanuts (your favorite variety – I used salted party peanuts)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Salt (optional)


  1. Place peanuts in food processor fitted with the metal chopping blade. Turn processor on high and chop/grind peanuts until smooth (usually no more than 5 minutes). You may find it necessary to scrape down inside of the processor bowl halfway through.
  2. When your peanut butter is as smooth as you would like, add in the honey. Season with salt, if necessary.
  3. Place the peanut butter in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
  4. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.


–If you wish to have chunky peanut butter, chop 1/3 – 1/2 cup peanuts and stir in at the end.
