  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Add peanuts to a baking sheet or dish, making sure they are laid out flat. Roast for 3 minutes; gently stir or shake pan. Roast for another 3-5 minutes or until lightly brown or smell nutty. *Be careful not to cook too long as they can burn quickly. Remove and let cool slightly.
  3. Add your peanuts to a food processor. Pulse until they are ground, making sure to scrape down the sides.
  4. Add salt, simple syrup and oil to taste. Pulse until smooth – about 3 minutes. Taste and make any adjustments to the butter with salt, syrup and oil, a teaspoon at a time. Pulse until all is blended.
  5. Spoon into a jar or air tight container. Refrigerate for a day or two to set. Store in the refrigerator up to month, but know that it won’t last that long!

Cooks Note

Homemade peanut butter will not be as smooth as store bought, but will be better because you made it!
