  • 3 cups Peanuts salted and roasted

  • Place the peanuts into the food processor and let run a minute. The peanuts will go from nuts to tiny pieces of nuts.
  • It will start to build up the side and then fall back in.
  • Add the vanilla and keep processing until the peanuts break up more.
  • Stop the processors, scrape down the sides.
  • Continue processing the peanuts until they are smooth and creamy.



To make this homemade peanut butter chunky, stir in half a cup of chopped nuts after processing. You can also swap the vanilla for maple flavoring to make a yummy maple peanut butter. Or add cinnamon to make cinnamon peanut butter.
