What I love about this homemade spread is just how affordable it is! Flavored peanut butter is super expensive but this one costs a fraction of the price!

Ingredients needed

As we have already mentioned, this recipe is made with only three ingredients. Here is what you’ll need: 

  • Peanuts. Roasted and unsalted. 
  • Honey. For the best recipe, use good quality honey like Manuka. 
  • Safflower oil. You can use other neutral-flavored oil of your choice. 

How to make honey roasted peanut butter 

Start by adding the unsalted peanuts to a high-speed blender or a food processor. Blend until crumbly, regularly scraping down the sides with a wooden or silicone spatula.

Add the honey and blend until a thick and creamy mixture remains. Slowly add the canola oil while still blending. Add more canola oil if the mixture is still too thick. Transfer to a jar and enjoy.

Tips to make the best recipe

  • If you can’t find roasted peanuts, get raw unshelled peanuts and roast them yourself. Roasting peanuts takes 15 to 20 minutes. Lay the peanuts on a baking tray and roast them at 350F until they are lightly golden. 
  • Adjust the texture of this spread to your preferences. You can blend it until smooth and creamy or your can leave it slightly chunky. You can also add some chopped peanuts for an extra crunchy texture! 
  • Add a pinch of salt to bring out the natural sweetness.
  • Use a high-powered blender or food processor with ice-blending capabilities.  Otherwise, you will go through a lot of struggle trying to achieve the right consistency. 
  • If you have a sweet tooth and honey just isn’t sweet enough for you, swap the honey in this recipe with maple syrup. Being sweeter than honey, maple syrup will also add some woody and caramel notes to the peanut butter. 

Storage instructions

To store: Transfer the spread into an airtight container or jar and store it at room temperature for up to 4 weeks. Keep it somewhere cool and out of direct sunlight and heat sources. 

To freeze: Place the spread in a glass jar and store it in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Frequently asked questions

Can dogs have honey peanut butter?

Peanut butter is one of the best treats to share with your dog. As for honey peanut butter, you can give it to your dog in moderation. Honey is safe for dogs but only in small amounts as it does contain a high amount of sugar. 

Be careful with giving your dog store-bought honey peanut butter as it may contain xylitol. The latter is very toxic to dogs even in the smallest amount. 

Can I swap out the honey?

If you are allergic to honey, don’t like its flavor, or don’t use it due to your diet restrictions, use agave syrup instead. Agave syrup is a 1:1 substitute for honey and provides very similar results. 

Will the honey harden?

Both honey and peanut butter harden at cold temperatures. So, if you are storing your honey roasted peanut butter in the fridge, allow it to sit at room temperature for up to an hour before you use it.

  1. My stash is dwindling again……I need to make another online order…..with my dad’s credit card…very soon 😛 I only have coconut butter, sunflower butter, and peanut butter right now! :O

  2. Agree with you, its must for a recipe blogger to have these things at time. I’d like to stop here and say your honey roasted peanut butter looks deliciously.

    Thanks for the recipe!
    Gonna try it 🙂

  3. Yep this is totally me! I have probably 8-10 jars in my cabinet right now and am literally eating cinnamon raisin peanut butter with an apple as I type this…

  4. anything under 50 is totally unacceptable..

    and i wish i were joking =l

    for some reason i’ve always been afraid of spicy nut butters.. like PB&CO the heat is on, why do you exist?

    BUT if i was ever going to trust someone, it would be you, so maybe once i finish 10-20 jars, make some room in my cabinets, and get a new food processor that doesn’t self combust over stale dates, this will be the first on my list 😉

  5. So hard to even find those 3 jars of nut butter in KL 🙁 One of my suitcase items every year though! One of our grocery stores got a Costco shipment in last week- including giant jars of almond butter. I had no problem shelling out $25 to refill my stash. But ouch, I don’t like writing the price out in dollars!

    1. OH I’d love to be checking your suitcase in customs….I would claim it as illegal and take it home :p

  6. I’m not a nut butter person but I love spicy honey roasted anything plus it’s great that you use lots of cayenne pepper in your recipes. I’m a big fan of the hot and spicy stuff thus my addiction to hunting down new hot sauces (:

    1. OHHH! I LOVE the hot sauce selection you guys have here in America- I could hang out here for days!

  7. Whaaaat?! FOR SHAME! but ok, it looks like my batch was sacrificed for a good cause and also i’m so bleeping excited to see your face IRL all is forgiven 😀

  8. I’m pretty sure that between the two of us, Jo and I have 11-12. Oops. Also – why are you not in Alberta?

  9. What a stroke of pure genius on this one, mate! Honey roasted peanut butter. That is making me hungry just thinking about it. At this very moment, you are probably munching on street nuts in NYC…but I bet your honey roasted version is way better! Hope your North America trip is going well!

    1. Cheers mate! Currently in LA….Man I want to move here so bad- America is where it’s AT.

  10. Ha this is an interesting combination. I enjoy spicy things so I feel like I might really like this. I’ve done some crazy things to satisfy my sweet tooth…although most just involve going to the local diner. LOL.
