A good blender, nuts and 5 minutes of your time – that’s all it takes to make homemade peanut butter. Clear flavour, smooth consistency and simple composition.

That sounds delicious, doesn’t it?

And to top it all of it is 2 times cheaper than the store bought.

Ingredients for peanut butter:

List of ingredients (for about 300 g of peanut butter or a medium jar)

  • 2 cups (about 300 g) unsalted peanuts
  • pinch of salt (optional)

Kitchen tools:

  • hand blender with a container and S-shaped blade or other devices where you can grind nuts
  • medium jar (0,5 l of capacity)
  • spoon


  • The addition of salt is optional – we like peanut butter with salt more, but it also comes out of the nuts themselves
  • if you have an old, well-worn blender and nuts hard to mix add a tablespoon of neutral flavour oil (eg from grapeseed)
  • Take breaks during blending so as not to overheat the blender
  • You can make different flavours by adding to the basic ingredients:
    •     honey: 1 tbs of honey
    •     cocoa: 1 tbs of honey or sugar + 1-2 tsp of cocoa (this will make it taste like Nutella)
    •     coconut: 2 tbsp coconut flakes
    •   spices, for example, cinnamon, vanilla, lemon juice

1.Pour nuts and a pinch of salt into the blender and mix until the fat begins to separate – a thick cream of nuts.

Tip 1. If a lot of nuts stick to the container’s walls, scrape them with a spoon and mix further.

Tip 2. Mixing time depends on the strength of the blender – for us it took about 5 minutes.

Tip 3. If you feel that the mixer is getting hot, take a break!

2. Put the peanut butter into the jar.

Tip 4. Store in a cool place, e.g. in a kitchen cupboard for a month

Tip 5. If fat becomes separated after prolonged ageing, simply mix them thoroughly
