My son was eating some peanuts the other day and while chewing, commented, “Mom, I’m making peanut butter!” Well, that sparked today’s post. I thought, yes, let’s make our own peanut butter, why not! We even made a video of it, as well as how to make easy peanut butter cookies with that homemade peanut butter!

This is my first attempt at a how-to video and it’s a little rough :)

How To Make: Homemade Peanut Butter

Recipe for Homemade Peanut Butter:

  • 1 cup dry roasted unsalted peanuts – can be pre-shelled or have fun shelling as part of the process.
  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. brown sugar

This makes 1/2 cup peanut butter. Chop in food processor for 3-5 minutes, or until desired consistency. Done! Now spread on toast or make these delicious cookies below! UPDATE: I suggest storing your homemade peanut butter in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
