How to make peanut butter

Make peanut butter yourself - smarter!

Although the peanut actually belongs to the legume family, it is one of the most popular nuts and is high in protein and magnesium! Rich in protein, this makes the peanut an absolute superfood. As a spread, but also in various recipes, it can be used in many ways, for example as an avocado and peanut smoothie or in combination with coconut milk as a sauce for tofu and broccoli.

This is how you can easily make peanut butter yourself at home:

Ingredients for 1 glass (approx. 300 ml):

  • approx. 230 g unsalted peanuts, roasted (or roast yourself)
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2-3 tbsp oil (sunflower, rapeseed or peanut oil)
  • 1 tbsp agave syrup


  • Kitchen mixer
  • Jar
  • possibly pan, coated
  • tablespoon
  • possibly dough scraper

That's how it works:

  1. Roast the unroasted peanuts evenly on all sides in a coated pan without oil.
  2. After cooling, put the nuts together with the remaining ingredients in the blender.
  3. The shorter the mass is crushed, the more nut pieces are left. Whether you prefer the peanut butter "crunchy" or rather "creamy" is up to you at this point. If the mass is too firm, a little oil can be added if desired.
  4. After mixing, the peanut mixture is still somewhat runny due to the heat generated. This can now be poured into the glass and stored in the refrigerator - the homemade peanut butter is ready! It can be kept in the refrigerator for about 6 weeks.


  • It is important that a strong mixer is used, which grinds the peanuts into a soft mass.
  • With the help of the agave syrup, the sweetness can also be reduced or omitted entirely, depending on the intended use.
  • In contrast to the finished product, this version can be spread smoothly and smoothly despite being stored in the refrigerator. Stored there it can be kept for about 6 weeks.

Good Appetite!
