Homemade Peanut Butter

Homemade peanut butter - so much better than from the grocery store.

Homemade Peanut Butter

You fans and your love for peanut butter! It drives me to make decadent desserts like this Chocolate and Peanut Butter Roulade with homemade peanut butter and peanut butter cups.

Homemade peanut butter, with homemade peanut butter cups and then used as a filling for this amazing chocolate peanut butter roulade.

A few weeks ago, I received my new KitchenAid Mixer! While attending the Food Blog Forum back in May, I was a lucky winner of a new mixer and after trying to decide what I would work best for family, I decided on the KitchenAid ProLine 7 quart Mixer! We are so happy with it! We’ve already had the pasta attachment, the ice cream bowl, and the meat grinder for my old one. We hadn’t been able to enjoy homemade pasta and ground steak for several years because the motor would overheat and it just wasn’t able to keep up. So, that’s the FIRST thing that we made with it! Not a cake…  not triple batch of cookies… Nope, Pasta and Ground Beef!

I was so thrilled with the new mixer and so happy to have WON this amazing piece of equipment that I was blown away when they asked if I would like to test their new 5 Speed Hand Blender.

Wow! This was so much more than I thought it would be.
Making peanut butter in a food processor is very easy!

The first thing that caught my attention was the size of this hand blender. I mean, this is like the James Bond 007 hand blender with the case, the mini food processor, the immersion blender attachments, the whisk, and the blending arm with the best cord strap that I’ve ever seen!

The Hand Blender has almost replaced my full size blender and food processor. I’ve made a ton of smoothies with frozen fruit and ice cubes. We made a quick batch of pesto in it. I’ve made whipped cream with it. And I made this homemade peanut butter with it!

Simple ingredients for a simple treat. You can make your own peanut butter at home with just a few simple ingredients.

I love this multi-purpose small appliance!  This would be the perfect gift for your college bound student, a housewarming gift, for a couple who is downsizing and well, even for the foodie who already has every appliance (like me!).

This was the first time I ever made peanut butter and I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to make. I did notice that it wasn’t as peanutty as commercial PB, but it was good. I added the coconut oil to make it a bit more viscous. It also helps it to harden in the fridge. I simply left it on the counter for 5 minutes before giving it a little stir and serving it. I don’t know how long it will maintain freshness. I had just over a cup of peanut butter and used it all for the roulade filling.

I am very thankful that KitchenAid generously sent me this 5 Speed Hand Blender, however, all opinions are my own.

Homemade Peanut Butter made with peanuts and coconut oil. Easy to make, great tasting, and no added sugar.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes


  • 1 pound Dry Roasted Peanuts, lightly salted
  • 1 tablespoon Coconut Oil, melted


    1. Place peanuts into a food processor and pulse until small bits form. Continue to run the food processor until smooth. Add the coconut oil as needed and desired smoothness is achieved.
    2. Transfer to a pint mason jar and place in the fridge. The peanut butter will harden so remove from fridge for 5 minutes before spreading on your toast or bread.
    3. When using the KitchenAid 5 Speed Hand Blender, start at speed 1 until a fine crumb forms. Increase to speed 3 as it starts to liquefy. Finally, blend at speed 5 until desired smoothness is achieved.


I don’t think that you will ever get homemade peanut butter as smooth as commercially processed peanut butter. Mine was not chunky, but there was still a slight texture to the peanut butter.

Does the peanut butter need to be refrigerated and how long does it keep?

It should keep for a few weeks. Yes, I kept mine refrigerated because of the separation, but I did have to let it soften for 5 minutes before using it. Another person suggested using honey roasted nuts and not needing to add any oil. I hope you enjoy it.

If you use oil- or honey-roasted peanuts, it'll turn out smooth and you won't have to use any added oil.

Thanks for the tip. I'll have to look for oil-roasted peanuts next time I'm at the store. I think I've only ever seen dry roasted... but I'll look more.
