2 Ingredient Homemade Peanut Butter

2 Peanutbutter

Wait!!! I know what you are thinking! You need a super expensive blender or food processor to make homemade peanut butter. NOPE! I have used many blenders in my day but my favorite is a Ninja. I am not being paid or given any products to write about it. I’m just telling you my favorite. 🙂

The Ninja I have comes with the blender and a food processor. You can pay upwards of $600 for a nice blender/food processor. The Ninja is a much better price! You can find it HERE if you are interested.

Back to the Peanut Butter!

So… my husband tried some homemade peanut butter at work and loved it. My first thought was… I love my JIF too much to give it up. He bought some salted peanuts at Walmart (they come in the big containers for pretty cheap) and convinced me to make it.

It was so easy and I am never going back! It really was so good! I have tried a few recipes and this one is my favorite!

  • 4 cups dry roasted peanuts (salted or unsalted, whatever you prefer! I have tried both and like salted a little more.)
  • 2 teaspoons of peanut oil (Vegetable oil will work too)


  1. Place the peanuts and oil in the bowl of a food processor and and process for 2 to 3 minutes. That may seem like a long time but it takes that long to get creamy. Stop it every 45 seconds and scrap down the sides.
  2. I have made it a few ways. The longer you keep it in the blender, the smoother it will become. I like mine a little crunchy so I didn't process it as long.
  3. Store the peanut butter in a glass jar or airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. I stir mine with a knife a few times before each use.
  4. Makes about 2 cups

When making peanut butter I would suggest using a NinjaVitamix, or Blendtec. You might kill your machine if you are using a non professional blender.

The best part is, you can make other butters too! Cashew Butter is also amazing!

  1. Just a note for those into making nut butters, if you own a blendtec, the Twister Jar is life changing. No offense, the peanut butter in the picture looks like it was done in a ninja or nutribullet, the twister jar will make it silky smooth in less than a minute. Trust me, life changing!
