The best peanut butter ever! Seriously!

I know I can exaggerate a bit over yummy recipes, but I promise this is no exaggeration. After tasting this peanut butter, the first thing Brad said was, “that’s the best peanut butter I’ve ever tasted”. I totally agree!!

I thought Trader Joe’s peanut butter was awesome, but this gives TJ’s a run for its money.


Crunchy Honey Cinnamon Peanut Butter

Recipe Type: spread, peanut butter

No joke….the best peanut butter EVER! Be careful, you won’t be able to keep your fingers out of the jar. Can be made smooth or crunchy.
  • 2 cups raw or lightly salted peanuts + 1/2 cup more for crunchy PB (I used Trader Joe’s lightly salted and roasted peanuts.)
  • 2 tbsp pure raw honey, preferably local
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • a couple of pinches of salt to taste (I used 1/2 tsp of pink Himalayan salt.)
  1. Add 2 cups peanuts to the bowl of the food processor and process on high for a couple of minutes. Stop processor to scrape down sides as needed.
  2. Once the peanuts are becoming a paste, add in the honey, coconut oil, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Continue to process until peanut butter is smooth and of desired consistency.
  4. For crunchy PB, pulse in 1/2 cup peanuts and continue to pulse until you’ve reached desired consistency.
  5. Will keep in an air safe container in your pantry for several weeks. Though, I doubt it will last that long….mine didn’t even make it a week.


I washed out one of my used peanut butter containers and used that for storing purposes. This recipe makes close to a full 6.5 oz jar and didn’t even last a week in this house.


I really like my peanut butter crunchy, but if you’d rather it be smooth, no problem….just don’t add in the extra 1/2 cup of peanuts.

Anyone have any fun plans for this weekend? I really don’t. I’m about to cook up some breakfast and I’m thinking about making it another French Toast Breakfast Scramble. Then I’m off to the gym for some running and then BodyPump.

Madelyn had her first sleep over with friends last night, so I’ll be picking her up this afternoon. I was thinking about participating in Julie’s Crock-pot challenge and slow cooking something today, but I’m not sure what yet.

Whatever you’re up to today; I hope it’s great!

Something to think about…..

What are your weekend plans? Planning on cooking up anything new?

Have you ever made homemade nutbutter?

What is your favorite store-bought nutbutter?




  1. Yay! I was so excited to see this post this morning, and I am so glad that you had such great success with making homemade peanut butter. This has definitely inspired me to go for it and make my own…..once my opened jar of peanut butter is gone. Which, with my love for peanut butter, I am sure that that will not take long. Thanks for sharing the recipe! :)

  3. I love homemade nut butters! It’s so fun to experiment with different flavors, I just wish my husband would partake. He likes his peanut butter plain-jane. That’s no fun!

  6. That looks amazing! My favorite is homemade peanut butter with honey actually. I make it for my kids and they love it. Just peanuts, honey, and a little salt :)

  7. My daughter asked if we could make peanut butter I was going to throw together my own recipe but why reinvent the wheel!
    Love it

  8. My favorite peanut butter is definitely Trader Joe’s!

    Soooo….. If I don’t have a food processor can I use the blender? WIll I have the same results?

    • I’ve never tried making nutbutter in the blender. If you have a super powerful blender, it’s worth a try.
