Homemade Peanut Butter in the Nutribullet

Forget about buying chemical-laced peanut butter from the store. And forget about spending big bucks to buy fancy organic peanut butter from health food stores made with no nasties. With this homemade peanut butter recipe, you’re armed with all you need to make wonderfully sweet, salty and creamy peanut butter at home in just 2Β minutes. Once you try homemade peanut butter, you’ll wonder why you didn’t start making your own sooner!

Thankfully for all the smoothie-hating people who’ve received high-powered blenders as gifts (me included!) you can do a lot more than blend fruit with them. I developed this recipe because I got a Magic Bullet NutriBulletΒ for Christmas a couple of years ago and I’m just not into smoothies. I’ve gotta have a little texture in my breakfast, you know? So instead of just letting the super powerful blender sit in its box gathering dust, I started looking up different ways to use it.

I’ve made my own homemade peanut butter for years. This is the recipe I started off using.Β But know I know how easy it is to make homemade peanut butter with a NutriBullet, I’m never going back. When you make peanut butter in the blender or with a food processor, you have to keep stopping to make sure the motor doesn’t overheat. And sometimes the blades just aren’t strong enough so you have to keep adding more oil until you’re left with a mix that’s 50% peanuts and 50% oil. Not something you really want to be spreading on banana slices for a healthy snack.

The NutriBulletΒ is so powerful you can make smooth, creamy and healthy peanut butter in less than 1 minute. That’s less hassle and time than it would be to buy a jar online! Better yet, because the blades and motor are so powerful, you only need a tiny bit of oil to make super smooth and creamy homemade peanut butter. I included a tiny bit of salt and honey in the recipe, because I love the depth of flavour they add. But you can totally omit them if you want to keep it simple.

I want to point out that this isn’t a sponsored post. I haven’t received any money or products from NutriBullet. I’m posting this because I’m genuinely so amazed at how quick and easy it is to make homemade peanut butter with this magical blender. As soon as I discovered it, I just had to share my new-found knowledge with everyone who would listen. And since roaming the streets and telling people to make homemade peanut butter seemed a bit weird, I thought I’d best blog about it instead.

Homemade Peanut Butter
Total Time
2 mins
Servings: 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey (optional)
  1. Add all the ingredients into a large NutriBullet container. Screw on the extractor blade attachment and blend for 5 seconds, until a dough-like mixture has formed which sticks to the walls of the container. At this point, the blades will not be touching the peanut mix and you'll hear a change in sound.

  2. Remove the container and scrape the peanut dough from the sides. Screw the lid back on, place the container onto the base and blend for about 10 seconds, until you've got totally smooth peanut butter.

  3. Transfer the peanut butter to a sterilised jar and store at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 2 months.

  1. Wow! I’m impressed! I buy all natural peanut butter – peanuts and salt are the only ingredients. So many nut butters are so expensive, but this would be a much more economical way to do it! Any advice on sterilizing the jar before storage?

    • I really struggle to get a hold of natural peanut butter where I live – that’s why I make my own!
      To sterilise glass jars at home, I simply place them in a large pot of water and boil them for around 10 minutes or so.

    My NutriBullet Pro 900 locks up and won’t turn the cup of organic dry roasted Valencia peanuts after a few spins. Why!

  3. Just did it. But I think the peanuts I used may not be the best for peanut butter – the peanuts taste nice on their own, but not as peanut butter. Is there a certain peanut type or brand that you find tastes best . . . like natural peanut butter you buy (no palm oil, but with oil on top) in the store?

    Thank you so much for the instructions and the recipe!

  4. Hello!
    I was searching if the Nutribullet does this because is not mine and I was afraid to heat the motor, but yeah, 1700 w is so powerful so I’m pretty excited to do the peanut butter by myself.
    Can I use the Nutribullet for anything else (besides smoothies and soup obviously)? Make doughs for some raw cake? Maybe a Food Processor is better? How many watts do you recommend for that?


    • Hi Catalina! I use my Nutribullet to do pretty much everything you can with a normal food processor or blender – it does it all much faster! As well as peanut butter, you can make all kinds of other nut butters as well as muffin, pancake and cake batters like you said.

      • I use mine to make hummus. A tin of chickpeas drained and washed – retain liquid from tin, clove of garlic minced, two teaspoons of tahini, two teaspoons of olive oil, good pinch of salt, juice of a lemon, up to 3 or 4 tablespoons of water (from the liquid in the tin).

        Blend. Eat. Lovely

  5. I make my own batch of peanut butter at home but as you said, it does heats up the food processor. I have never thought of using Nutribullet and I think I know what I am going to gift myself for my birthday ????

  6. There are some amazing peanut butter add-ins out there! I mean, when you make your own, the sky is the limit as far as interesting combinations! And peanut butter can be so expensive when you buy a “custom blend” – this is great for making your own! I have a Vitamix and this should work too!

    • This would definitely worth in a Vitamix, too! Never though about experimenting with different add-ins. You’ve given me a great idea, Emily!

  7. I also never jumped on the smoothie bandwagon. I’m not exactly a hater…they’re just kind of meh in my opinion. I am very glad to know of this alternative use for my Magic Bullet! Homemade peanut butter is something I can get behind. πŸ™‚

  8. Ooo! I have a Nutribullet as I love smoothies (what a shame they you don’t enjoy them!) but I’ve not tried making my own nut butter. It look fantastic! I will definitely have a go when my current jar of PNB is empty πŸ˜€

    • I wish, wish, WISH I could like smoothies, but I just don’t! Hope you enjoy your homemade PB as much as your homemade smoothies πŸ™‚

  9. Hiya, I love the look of this recipe however I’m concerned about my nutribullet not working with it – just wondering what series you have?? I have the 900 πŸ™‚

    • Hey, Georgia! I’ve just taken a look at my NutriBullet and I honestly don’t have a clue! It doesn’t say on the machine itself and I don’t have the box or any documentation any more. But I don’t see why it wouldn’t work with any NutriBullet.

  10. Just bought a nutribullet and literally, this is the first thing I’ve made. It turned out perfect and tastes delicious!! Forgot to sterilize the jar but hey, I’m fairly confident this will be consumed within a week! πŸ™‚

    • I’m sure you’ll be fine without sterilising the jar πŸ™‚ I’m so happy you enjoyed the “recipe” as much as I do! (Not really sure I can call something as simple as this a “recipe”, but hey!)

  11. I am excited to try this recipe with my Nutribullet however I’m wondering if I can use any other oils besides peanut oil? Would it change the flavour too much with a different oil?

    • Hi Karin! I’m so sorry for the late reply – I’ve been away for a couple of weeks. Any oil without a strong flavour (like canola oil) would work really well.

    • Hi Stephanie. I agree, peanut butter is loads better at room temperature. I’ve kept mine safely at room temperature for up to 2 months. Make sure you keep it in a properly sealed jar somewhere dark and cool – like in a cupboard or kitchen drawer.
