Homemade peanut butter? Oh yeah! 😋
If you’re like me, you often have a hard time trying to find that perfect keto peanut butter while shopping. I’ve personally tried a handful of various peanut and almond butters on the market and they just don’t ever quite hit the spot… until now!
With our recipe, you can make your own keto nut butter for a delicious low carb snack, and all it takes is blending together just a few ingredients! And compared to how much store-bought nut butters cost these days, you’ll likely be saving big by making your own, too.
Have you ever noticed nut butter can be lacking in salt but loaded in sugar?
Why can’t we have salty-sweet keto peanut butter? Well, that stops now! I’m sharing with you a delicious recipe that is certain to hit the spot and satisfy those sweet and savory peanut butter cravings.
Recipe tips for making the perfect nut butter:
- Try adding your favorite flavors and spices to your nut butter: cinnamon, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, nutmeg, monk fruit sweetener, sea salt, or even ChocZero maple syrup!
- After roasting your peanuts, let them cool completely before adding to your blender or food processor. The heat could cause excess heat, steam, & pressure in your food processor and make a mess.
- My Hip team member, Jenna, used peanuts that had a thin red shell on the nuts. To remove, she let them slightly cool after roasting and rolled them around between her hands and the papery shell came right off!
- Every 2 cups of nuts will make about 1 cup of nut butter, so feel free to double (or triple!) the recipe if you want a larger batch!

My team member, Jenna, gave this recipe a test for me and here’s what she had to say:
Wow! If I would have known how easy it is to make keto nut butter at home, I would have started doing this years ago. I love that the almond butter has optional ingredients because it truly has a great taste all on its own.
The flavor on both of these is so fresh and creamy, I am so impressed! This is a great batch and made enough to fill my glass jars for easy storing.” – Jenna
