  • Use high-quality peanuts for the best tasting smooth peanut butter. 
  • Never use stale peanuts or ones that have been sitting around for a while for the best results.

  • Use a good-quality food processor or blender. 




Can I Use Salted Peanuts To Make This Peanut Butter Recipe?

Yes, you can use salted peanuts if you prefer. Keep in mind if you use some salted peanuts, the peanut butter itself is going to seem salty. I prefer unsalted unsweetened peanut butter, but you can try it different ways. 


Is It Okay To Use Honey Roasted Peanuts?

Yes, if you happen to have honey roasted peanuts on hand and want to use them, give it try. The honey will add some sweetness to the unsweetened peanut butter. You'll want to remember that if you add honey roasted peanuts to the creamy peanut butter, the flavor is going to be a lot different.
