Homemade Peanut Butter (and PB-filled Medjoul Dates)

Who else loves peanut butter? Actually, almost everyone I know does. So why not getting even closer in your relationship with peanut butter by making your own!?

I have been asking myself this question and I really could not think of a reason for not to make my own peanut butter instead of buying it; it is cheaper to make it on my own, I can vary the amount of salt and the duration of the roasting process, and I can make sure there is nothing inside my peanut butter that I do not want to have in there (added oils etc.).

Making homemade peanut butter is as easy as it can be: you basically just nee peanuts! Well, and some salt, if you like the salty kind of peanut butter (which I do). So here we go with both a recipe for the peanut butter and a recipe for my favorite way on how to eat it…

For the peanut butter all you will need is:


And some salt

I made 300g of peanut butter so I used 300g of peanuts and two dashes of salt.

How to do?

Roast the peanuts for around 20 minutes at 190°C. If you like your peanut butter stronger in tasty and with more of a roast flavor, you can try to roast up to 30 minutes.

As soon as the peanuts are ready, add some salt to them.

Then blend the roasted, salted peanuts in your blender.

I personally love the crunchy kind of peanut butter but you can easily make a more fine butter by just blending the peanuts for a little longer.


For the filled dates you will need:

Medjoul Dates


(I usually use my homemade chocolate but I too have lazy days. On a lazy day I love to use the chocolate from Original Beans which is one of the best chocolat companys I know)

Now, what are your favorite ways of eating peanut butter?

I love to add it into Asian dishes, I love to eat it on sandwiches (both with salads, cucumber and tomatoes or with honey), and I love to eat it in soft and creamy medjoul dates!

Just open a medjoul date, take out the stone, and add in some salty peanut butter – seriously, this is SO good! You have to give it a try.

Medjoul dates are the softest, creamiest dates and they are perfect for this kind of snack. In case you are a chocolate-lover, you can even cover the entire dates in melted chocolate and enjoy it as a perfect praline.

By the way, I get both my raw peanuts and my medjoul dates online from Koro Drogerie. The nice thing about the Koro Drogerie is that you can buy in bulk and I got like 1 kilo of peanuts instead of those 200g packages that you usually kind find in the shops.

Now I would just love them to ship their products in paper bags instead of plastic bags. Hopefully that will be possible sometime soon.

In case you are familiar with this recipe already and you are looking for something slightly more fancy, make sure to check out my friend Nicole’s blog When Sweet Becomes Healthy and her Chocolate Coverd Medjoul Dates with Vanilla Peanut Butter Stuffing– they are like the pro version of this recipe here 😀

Have you ever made homemade peanut butter? Or have you ever tried to eat dates filled with peanut butter? Maybe you have secret ingredient when making peanut butter? I would love to know!

    Ich oute mich an dieser Stelle: ich habe noch nie, nie, nie Erdnussbutter gegessen! Ich weiß gar nicht wie das schmeckt… o.o

    Dankeschön für dein liebes Lob zu den letzten Fotos!
    Die waren aber nun schon fast zwei Jahre alt, daher fand ich es nicht mehr sonderlich relevant dazu zuschreiben, wo sie damals erschienen sind. 😉 Ich müsste da langsam mal etwas schneller werden…

    This is a great recipe, hun! 🙂 I loove peanut butter, especially peanut butter combined with chocolate is everything. I’ve never really thought about making my own peanut butter, though! It does seem really easy. 🙂 Thank you for sharing, lovely! xoxo

    I think peanut butter is my favorite food. I just love it! I have never tried to make it myself. Yours looks good! In the US, you can freshly grind it in the health stores. Putting it in dates sounds very good.

    I’ve just bookmarked this page because once my jar of peanut butter is finished, I want to attempt to make my own, it seems incredibly easy and so much more affordable; peanut butter (organic) can be quite expensive! I also love your easy recipe with the medjoul dates, I’ll definitely be trying this out, too! Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
