Homemade Nut Butter

Homemade Nut Butter Recipe

By VegetaFull

🔪Prep Time: 10 minutes

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 12 minutes


Peanut butter

4 cups of dry roasted, unsalted peanuts (use blanched peanuts for drizzle able peanut butter)

Almond butter

4 cups of dry roasted, unsalted almonds


Homemade Peanut Butter

1Add 4 cups of peanuts to a blender container. Start blending at low speed and work your way up to medium speed, as your blender allows. At first, it will look like wet sand, and then it will become increasingly creamy. Use the tamper to push the nuts down and around toward the blade. You may want to stop and scrape the sides of the container if needed, or just keep blending until you have a nice creamy or creamunchy texture. This process takes a couple of minutes in a Vitamix but may take longer in other blenders. Just have patience, your perfect peanut butter awaits. (I have to stop occasionally and let the motor cool down on my blender, so it doesn’t overheat)

2Scrape your homemade nut butter into clean glass jars. I find that peanut butter keeps just fine in the pantry as a batch in my house never lasts longer than a week!

Homemade Almond Butter

1Spread 4 cups of unsalted almonds, in a single layer, on a baking tray and roast at 425 F (218 C) for 12 minutes. You’ll know they are done when the middle of the almond is a lovely light brown color and you can smell that wonderful roasted aroma. Allow the almonds to cool slightly. I find they are easier to blend when warm. They will also make a cheerful crackling sound as they cool down.

2Blend the almonds just like you would for peanut butter. Almonds take a little longer to turn creamy than peanuts because the nut is harder but don’t worry, with a little patience, it will turn into perfect almond butter. This process takes a few minutes or more, depending on your blender.

3Scrape your homemade nut butter into clean glass jars and store in the refrigerator.
