Honey Roasted Peanut Butter

Honey Roasted Peanut Butter is amazingly simple to make. 3 ingredients in a food processor and voila – Divine, homemade peanut butter!!!



My daughter Em (17 months old) has been going through a phase with her eating.  I hear it is normal for her age.  But she will eat something one day and the next day she won’t put it into her mouth.  Her no fail fall back has been PB & J.  It seems the one thing she will eat everyday no matter what. 

After I came to terms with the fact that there will be PB & J lunches some days, I started a quest to make sure Em was eating the most healthy and delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich that I can possibly provide her. 

So far, I have accomplished delicious Strawberry Jam and incredibly tasty homemade white bread.  That left me the task of making a peanut butter from scratch (jarred peanuts) as delicious or more delicious than our favorite natural peanut butter.

I am so happy to say that Em enjoyed that sandwich, and so did Mr. W.  Watching the expressions on their faces as they enjoyed those sandwiches, and seeing Mr. Picky (Mr. W’s nickname) savoring every delicious flavor nearly brought tears to my eyes.  I know it seems so simple. 

But, knowing that I am putting the healthiest food in their bodies possible, and that I am creating this sandwich from a pile of berries, flour and peanuts…   It is so utterly satisfying as a mother and a wife, that I can’t possibly describe it to you.

Course Condiment
Cuisine American
Method Food Processor
Servings 1 Pint


  • 16 ounce jar of dry roasted peanuts
  • 4 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey


  • In the bowl of a food processor grind the peanuts until they are fine and start to back down into the bowl.
  • Add peanut oil one tablespoon at a time with food processor on. The peanut butter will be quite soft at this point.
  • Then add in the honey and mix again. The peanut butter will become more thick after the honey is added. Transfer to a container and refrigerate. If you find the peanut butter too thick, add a few drops of peanut oil and mix lightly.

  3. I completely understand!! There are some things that are so simple, yet bring so much satisfaction to mothers…the smiles and happiness of our children being probably the biggest 😀

  4. WOW! Donna, that is SO ambitious and you have far more patience than I do to make a COMPLETE PB&J sandwich from scratch. Actually, it probably tastes SO much better than the processed stuff anyway.
    Ok, now I'm drooling and I want one. Can we do lunch? 😉

  5. The creaminess of your fresh peanut butter is making my tastebuds want some too!! Maybe an ice cream shake with fresh honey peanut butter sounds good:)

  6. I've often wanted to make my own pb…this sounds much easier than I thought it would be! One question – how long does it last in your fridge?

  7. Seriously! How easy is this! I will be making my own peanut butter from now on. Thank you so much!

  8. Ok I admit
    .Althoug I idi make several satay sauces i never made my own peanut butter.Not even when there was an experiment in teh local supermarket with the proper machine an dyou didn't have to clean anything after taht.
    But after your recepie I might try.It looks so smooth;)

  9. Hi it Jennifurla. To Make buttermilk, put 1tbs white vinegar in your measuring cup, then fill with milk. Let sit for 5 minutes. easy peasy.

    For the stripes, I cut stips of parchment paper. Placed on the top of the cake, then pressed cocoa powder down on the exposed parts. When done, blow of the excess then pull off the parchment stripes!

    Have a super day.

  10. Sounds very nice.I always use peanut butter and honey separately.Now I will try this, it will just one spread.Thanks!

  11. 5 stars
