Crunchy Peanut Butter

25 Mar


Ok, I know I have posted quite a few nut butter recipes lately but how could I not post the original and best nut butter, peanut butter! I personally prefer crunchy pb by far but it’s up to individual taste. If you wanted to make smooth pb then you would just have to process all the peanuts together. I think everyone knows what peanut butter is and how amazingly delicious it is, so there’s not much to describe. The one thing I will say is that making your own pb means that you can control the sweetness and saltiness so it’s perfectly to your taste.


Crunchy Peanut Butter 

450g peanuts

2tsp peanut/groundnut oil

dark brown sugar/honey/maple syrup


  • Preheat the oven to 160ºc/320ºf and spread the peanuts out evenly on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
  • Bake in the oven for 10mins, tossing half way through.
  • Put 350g peanuts in a food processor and blitz for about 10-15mins until it starts clumping together and forming a thick paste.
  • Add the oil, salt and your chosen sweetener to taste. Blitz again to combine and continue processing until it forms a creamy butter.
  • Scrap into a bowl and set aside. Clean the processor and blitz the remaining peanuts until roughly chopped then add to the peanut butter.
  • Mix to combine and spoon into jars. Store in the fridge.
