It takes just 15 minutes to make this simple homemade two-ingredient peanut butter. Vegan, refined sugar-free, hydrogenated oil-free & healthier!



  • 2 cups peanuts
  • pinch of salt


  1. I like to use full peanuts, so I first have to remove the shells. Then they are ready to roast.

    Roast the peanuts in the oven at 160ÂșC (fan assisted) for 7-10 minutes. The longer you roast them, the deeper the colour of the peanut butter. I myself like the flavour more toasted, so I roasted them for 10 minutes.

  2. As soon as the peanuts come out of the oven, carefully peel them. The skin should just come off easily when you scrunch them in your hands or with a towel. I then used a hairdryer to remove the skins ( although, be warned, this can be messy! ) *

  3. Put the peanuts and a pinch of salt in a high-power food processor or blender and blitz them until you obtain a smooth butter. The longer you blend it, the runnier the peanut butter becomes ( I tend to blend all my nut butters for between 2-3 minutes for hte perfect consistency). Store in a glass container.


*Having some skins in the mix will add an interesting flavour and create a lovely rich colour, so no need to panic about getting rid of every last bit!
