Ingredients

Classic Homemade Peanut Butter

  • 3 cups unsalted dry roasted peanuts

Honey Vanilla Peanut Butter

  • 3 cups unsalted dry roasted peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, room temperature

Chocolate Sea Salt Peanut Butter

  • 3 cups unsalted dry roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (room temperature)
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt

Crunchy Maple Cinnamon Peanut Butter

  • 3.33 cups unsalted dry roasted peanuts (divided)
  • 2 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, room temperature

Instructions

Classic Homemade Peanut Butter

  1. Place 3 cups of peanuts in a high-speed food processor. Process peanuts on high for 5-8 minutes, stopping every minute or so to scrape the sides if needed. You know your peanut butter is ready when it’s drippy (it took us about 6 minutes!).

Honey Vanilla Peanut Butter

  1. Place 3 cups of peanuts in a high-speed food processor. Process peanuts on high for 5-8 minutes, stopping every minute or so to scrape the sides if needed. You know your peanut butter is ready when it’s drippy.
  2. Add in honey, vanilla extract, and coconut oil and blend. At this point your peanut butter might seize and get uncreamy. This is normal and what the coconut oil is for! Blend for 2-3 more minutes or until things smooth out again.

Chocolate Sea Salt Peanut Butter

  1. Place 3 cups of peanuts in a high-speed food processor. Process peanuts on high for 5-8 minutes, stopping every minute or so to scrape the sides if needed. You know your peanut butter is ready when it’s drippy.
  2. Add in dark chocolate chips and sea salt and blend for about 1 more minute or until everything is mixed. NOTE: use room temperature chocolate chips. Frozen/cold chocolate chips might seize your peanut butter!

  2. Add in maple syrup, ground cinnamon, and coconut oil and blend. At this point your peanut butter might seize and get uncreamy. This is normal and what the coconut oil is for! Blend for 2-3 more minutes or until things smooth out again.
  3. Finally, add in whole peanuts and pulse a few times until they get chopped and mixed in!
