Peanut butter, peanut butter, peanut butter. Who does not love peanut butter? Well with the worlds easiest homemade peanut butter recipe there is no reason to ever buy peanut butter in the store again.
This homemade peanut butter is 100% organic, non-GMO, no additives, preservable and most important of all the best peanut butter you have ever tasted. Ready to learn how to make peanut butter at home? Let’s get started!
The first time I made homemade peanut butter was more than two years ago. The reason to try and make it myself was easy all the additives were unbelievable.
Looking at the food label on peanut butter showed that it contains 10 grams of sugar per 100 grams and additional salt.
Why in the world is it necessary to use added sugar and salt when peanuts already have natural sugar and salt?
We used to buy peanut butter that had an additional layer of oil on top of the peanut butter. The idea was that you stir the oil through the peanut butter to prevent it from going dry.
In the beginning, you would only eat oil with some peanut butter and about halfway through the jar, it would be the other way around until the peanut butter would go all dry and hard.
So I searched for peanut butter recipes but all of them mentioned adding either oil or salt or sugar or all of the above.
But why not try and make it but without any additives and just leave the sugar and salt out? I gave it a try and to my own amazement, it worked!
Peanut butter ingredients
This is the shortest ingredient list you will find on the Tortilla Channel. To make this recipe you need:
- Peanuts either peeled or still in their shell
How to make homemade peanut butter
How does it work? Buy a bag of roasted in-shell peanuts and peel/de-skin the peanuts. Remove the shell and reddish skin as much as possible.
If you leave to much skin in you are going to taste it. It takes some time to peel a whole bag but let your partner or children help you out (make sure they do not eat all of the peanuts in the meanwhile ?).
Keep the skinned peanuts in a bowl. If you buy skinned peanuts in a bag make sure you buy unsalted peanut butter.
This peanut butter does not need any salt. The natural salt in peanut butter is more than enough. When all of the skin is off you can put the peanuts in a food processor.
Let is blend on the highest speed. After 30 seconds you have the structure from which you can make peanut sauce (or satay/saté sauce as we say here in the Netherlands).
Let is run continuously for 6 minutes the peanuts will turn into a paste. After about 8 minutes you get thick peanut butter.
If you like the structure you can stop the food processor and take out the nut butter at that point. I let it run for another 2 minutes and after 10 minutes you have super creamy peanut butter.
This peanut butter is organic, gluten-free, vegan and delicious. Isn’t this the most simple and amazing recipe for peanut butter you ever saw?

How to store
So what is the best way to store peanut butter? Keep it in an old peanut butter jar and store it in a dark kitchen cabinet.
If you are wondering if you should store peanut butter in the refrigerator? The answer is no, you can keep it outside of the fridge.
How long can you store peanut butter
I have never thrown away any of my homemade peanut butter. Just make sure you close the lid tight and you can keep it for months.
I would almost say you can keep it forever because I have made loads of peanut butter and it never went bad or gone dry.
It always stays spreadable. If I had to put a date on it I would say eat it within 6 to 9 months. It never lasts this long in our house.
