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.
- 2 cups raw or lightly salted peanuts + ½ cup more for crunchy PB (I used Trader Joe’s lightly salted and roasted peanuts.)
- 2 tbsp pure raw honey, preferably local
- ½ tbsp coconut oil
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- a couple of pinches of salt to taste (I used ½ tsp of pink Himalayan salt.)
- 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.
- Once the peanuts are becoming a paste, add in the honey, coconut oil, cinnamon and salt.
- Continue to process until peanut butter is smooth and of desired consistency.
- For crunchy PB, pulse in ½ cup peanuts and continue to pulse until you’ve reached desired consistency.
- 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…..
