How To Cook Peanut Butter Yourself

Caution! Peanut butter builds up a habit. Fitscientist shares a simple secret with you – how to cook peanut butter at home.


The benefits from the peanut butter is the same as from peanut itself: there is a lot of vegetable protein, which is completely free of cholesterol, and it is also rich with vitamins РР, А, В1, В2, Е. Peanuts also contain folic acid, promoting the renewal and growth of cells; cellulose, macro- and microcomponents (zinc, ferrum, iodine, phosphorus, calcium, cobalt, potassium). It is considered that peanut butter’s benefits also involve an increase in testosterone increase, but I didn’t find any scientific support to this assumption.


  • 16 oz peanuts
  • 0.5 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oil (peanut, veg or rape); olive oil is also OK here, but it shouldn’t be first-pressed.
  • 1 tbsp honey or any other sweetener (it’s tastier when sweet, but you can do without any sugar, so the paste will have just taste of nuts)

1. To save your time and hands, you should buy clean, fresh unroasted peanuts without salt. Wash them, dry with the towel and spread equally among the pan, which will go into the oven preheated to 355 degrees F for 5 or 7 minutes.


2. Blend the roasted peanuts!


3. A minute will be the right time to slow down and scrape down the mixture from the blender’s walls.


4. In 1 or 2 minutes, blend the peanuts once again, cut down the nuts to size and add salt! Add honey and oil. Then switch on the blender again…

If the paste is too thick, pour some water in it. Pour as much as you need.

5. We love consistency like this, but it could be with pieces.


5. The main thing in this process is to turn off the blender on time.


6. You can add cocoa, cinnamon, nutmeg or other spices if you wish. The paste will be much tastier if you add chocolate here.


7. Peanut butter is mighty wholesome, but very calorific. Know when to stop.

3.5 oz of peanut butter contains: 574.4 Kcal, 0.8 oz Protein, 1.7 oz Fat, 0.9 oz Carbs

UPD from lifting_peanuts: It’s also good to use some other nuts and substitute honey with soaked dates. You can soak unroasted nuts as well, cashews in particular, and use water instead of oil, which affects mainly the storage period, not the taste, and reduces the calorific value indeed. It’s simple cheating that way!
