  • 300 g (2 cups) peanuts salted or unsalted, unskinned
  • 1 teaspoon honey, optional
  • salt to taste, optional


  1. Place the peanuts in a large pan and toast over medium heat for almost 7-8 minutes. Stir in every 15-20 seconds to prevent them burning. Take them from the heat when they give off their aroma. 

  2. Put the toasted hazelnuts into the food processor. Process until creamy: Start to pulse at medium speed for 10-15 seconds and then go to high. First the peanuts will be grounded, then the oil will start to give off-the peanuts will become together, finally the peanuts will give off the whole oil and you will have a creamy look.  At this point add in the honey and salt.  Process for extra 1 minute.  If you want to add additional salt or honey, you can add and process for extra 10-15 seconds.  The whole process takes almost 4 minutes.    At the end of each 1-1,5 minutes, scrape down the sides.   

  3. Transfer the peanut butter into a glass jar and refrigerate until use.
