  • 2 cups unsalted roasted peanuts
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and seeds scraped
  • ½ teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 1-2 teaspoons coconut oil, plus more if necessary


  1. Place your peanuts in your food processor and process for about 5 minutes or until the nuts begin to form a creamy paste. Add in vanilla bean, honey, salt and coconut oil; process again for 2-4 minutes or until creamy.
  2. At this point, the peanut butter should be pretty smooth. If it isn’t you can add additional coconut oil (I recommend an additional 1-2 teaspoons). You should also taste the peanut butter to make sure the sweet and saltiness is spot on to your liking. Remember that if you add more honey, you’ll need to add more coconut oil as honey can make the peanut butter seize up a bit.
  3. Pour peanut butter into a mason jar, or another airtight container and seal tightly. Makes 10 servings. Serving size: 2 tablespoons.

Recipe Notes

To make Vegan: Replace the honey with agave nectar or pure maple syrup.
