Homemade Peanut Butter

A big thank you to my sweet husband for being the hand model in this first picture!! Haha! I love it.  I always told him he should be a hand model!  I’m always getting him to do ‘pour shots’ for my pictures whenever the recipe includes a sauce, he holds my light diffuser for me…he helps me out so much!

Do any of you abuse use your family members to help you out with your business?!!

When I was a caterer and personal chef he would be my Sous Chef and help me prep for events.  I just had to shout him out because he’s so awesome.

Now to the peanut butter.

I remember the first time I made homemade peanut butter like it was yesterday!  I was soooo excited.  I had just started learning about the dangers of preservatives and other chemicals they put in darn near all of our food.  So I was on a mission to make most, if not all, of my condiments, snacks, etc… from scratch.

I decided to spend the big bucks on a Vitamix 5300 Electric Countertop Blender, Black.  I had to sweet talk my husband into getting it because it was not cheap!!  This is hands down one of the best investments I’ve made. We make peanut butter from scratch about once a week and one of my new favorite snacks became apples with peanut butter and homemade jam (recipe coming soon!).  As you know I drink smoothies every single day and this blender won’t leave any chunks in your drink!!

If you don’t have a high-speed blender like this Vitamix then you may be able to try making peanut butter in a food processor. You would just have to keep stopping to stir it every now and then to make sure everything is blended evenly. I wouldn’t use a regular home blender because it might burn the motor.

Homemade Peanut Butter

I hope you take a look at the video recipe to see how easy it is to make.  You will literally have fresh peanut butter with no harmful ingredients in 3 minutes.  How awesome is that?!

3 Minute Homemade Peanut Butter!!
Prep Time
5 mins
Cook Time
3 mins
Total Time
8 mins
Course: Pantry
Servings: 1 1/2 cups
Author: Daytime Vegan
  • 3 cups roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 3 dates pitted
  • a pinch of salt
  1. Place everything in your high-speed blender. Blend until smooth. It shouldn't take but a few minutes if using a high-speed blender. It may be tempting to add water but don't do this. Water is never an ingredient in peanut butter.
  2. If using a food processor you may have to stop blending every now and then to mix everything in the food processor up. This will help with even blending.
  3. If you don't mind chunky, crunchy, peanut butter then you will finish even faster!!
  4. Place in a sealed container. I do not refrigerate my peanut butter. I leave it in my pantry where it is nice and cool. Mine never lasts longer than 2 weeks because we eat it so much, but it could last up to a month.

      Awesome! It’s soooo easy to make. My husband and I literally have never purchased another jar of peanut butter since we learned to make it from scratch!! Thank you 🙂

    I have never tried making my own peanut butter before. This recipe looks and sounds super simple. I may have to try making my own sometime. We love peanut butter in my house.

    I am blown away! I am so encouraged to try this. I just followed your Instagram also, love the pics. We have the Blendtec blender not sure if it is as good as the Vitamix at making peanut butter, but will try it and see.

      This makes me so happy! I’m glad I could encourage you to give it a shot. I definitely think the Blendtec can handle making peanut butter. I’ve heard that blender is very powerful too. Let me know if you give the recipe a try. Thanks so much for visiting 🙂

    I have to try this! I have a Froothie Optimum 9400, a more affordable option to the Vitamix (with a more powerful motor!) so it would make short work of the peanuts. I’ve never tried making my own nut butters in it before – I must do this!

      Oh yes, I’ve heard of that blender! You shouldn’t have any trouble at all. Definitely give it a try 🙂 🙂

    Ah nuts! What an awesome video (and recipe). Peanut butter does not last long in our house, never made it homemade though. I think we’ll have to give this a try. Would love to throw in a few light crushed peanuts, and make it super crunchy. Then of course, it will be slathered on a thick piece of toast for brekkie. YUM!

      I loooove slathering my toast with peanut butter and I love the idea of adding some crushed peanuts for crunch!! Thanks for visiting 🙂

    Pretty straightforward, isn’t it?! I’ve got a Vitamix too. I agree — it’s a great investment!

      Yes, I was scared at first to spend the big bucks on a Vitamix, but it’s so worth it. Thanks for stopping by!!

    I am so surprised there’s no liquid used! The recipe looks awesome, I so wanna try this. Sadly, I do not have the right equipment at the moment. I want a Vitamix so badly, but cannot afford it right now… I’d love to be able to make all my food from scratch too.

      Yes I was surprised that there was no liquid too when I first made peanut butter. Maybe you could try the QVC website. They have really good payment plans. I saw one Vitamix for like $489 and they broke the payments up so people only had to pay about $70 a month for it. And shipping was free, and they gave you a cookbook and some other things with it. I love using QVC’s payment plans.

    Thank God for family members who agree to be abused/used for our blogs. I love peanut butter and have not made my own in a while now
