Homemade Peanut Butter {Peanut Butter Comfort Review + Giveaway}


  • 16 ounces Roasted Peanuts
  • Salt, optional and to taste
  • Chopped Peanuts (for crunchy peanut butter)


  • Add peanuts to the canister of a food processor. Process on high power until cream & smooth, about 5 minutes. Stopping to scrape down the sides if necessary.
  • The peanuts will go through various stages: crushed, a fine powder, a thicker paste & a big "dough ball." The dough will break down & turn into a runnier peanut butter. Don't stop processing when you have that "dough ball," it will indeed breakdown. At the point the peanut butter is runny keep processing for about 1 more minute, making sure it is as smooth as desired.
  • Taste the peanut butter and add salt (if desired to taste) & chopped peanuts. Process again quickly to incorporate the salt & peanuts. Serve immediately or chilled.
  • Peanut butter will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for many weeks.
  • This recipe is from the Peanut Butter Comfort cookbook by Averie Sunshine.

  1. Marla thank you so much for this post, for hosting a giveaway, and for the super sweet, kind words. You are a true friend and I am so appreciative of you doing this!

    Your peanut butter is glorious. And your son has very good taste to want to put white choc chips on top of that slice of bread! Such a smart kid :)

  2. Peanut butter is a condiment, baking accessory and life fundamental in our house…spread a little on fresh corn on the cob and savor the wonderful flavor!

  3. Peanut Butter is a staple in our house, and I’m always trying to find different ways to include variety for my children.

  4. I love peanut butter but have never made it. Thank you for sharing the recipe! I like to make chocolate covered peanut butter balls for the holidays, and peanut butter cookies with my husbands grandmothers recipe.

  5. My first favorite way of using it is spread on a toasted english muffin and dolloped with a spoonful of berry jam. I like using the creamy peanut butter for baking cookies. And last but not least, I like taking a spoonful from the jar. Yum.

  6. Love the idea of adding white chocolate chips – YUM!!!! My favorite way to use PB is on cookies with chocolate of course!

  7. I love, love, love peanut butter. My preferred way is just to grab a spoonful and eat it straight out of the jar. I’m going to try the white chocolate chips next time! Sounds delicious!

  8. I love putting peanut butter in just about anything, but I gotta say my chocolate cake with peanut butter cream cheese frosting is definitely my favorite way.

  9. The two best: peanut butter & jelly sandwiches on fresh baked bread and peanut butter cookies (reminds me of home eco class.)

  10. I make a healthy homemade banana nut bread and for lunch everyday I have a slice with smear of peanut butter, chopped bananas and a drizzle of honey!
