Today I am Elated. Ecstatic. Overjoyed. Delighted. Giddy and totally floating on cloud 9 over here…and it’s all because of this Homemade Honey Roasted Vanilla Bean Peanut Butter. Yes. You heard me right. Honey Roasted Peanut Butter consisting of Honey roasted peanuts, raw cocoa butter and aromatic vanilla beans come together to make this deliciously irresistible peanut butter.

I seriously couldn’t be any more in love with a spread. This homemade peanut butter recipe is creamy & dreamy and absolutely bursting with deep, rich flavors. Of course (you saw this coming), it is so easy to make (think less than 5 minutes) thanks to my Vitamix.

How to Make Honey Roasted Peanut Butter in a Vitamix!

If you love making homemade peanut butter like I do, then I absolutely recommend using a Vitamix blender. It does the job better than any other kitchen appliance out there. A food processor works too, but it takes a touch longer and the result isn’t quite as creamy.

Use the Tamper

The number one piece of advice I can give you when it comes to making homemade nut butter in the Vitamix is to use the tamper! As soon as you start blending use the tamper to push the peanuts into the blades! Don’t stop tamping until the mixture becomes smooth!

Add Other Ingredients Last & Pulse to Combine

Certain ingredients such as honey, maple syrup, etc. can cause nut butters to seize up and become difficult to blend. Be sure to add such ingredients after the nuts have reached your desired consistency to avoid this issue. Since the desired consistency has already been achieved, simply pulse to combine the extra ingredients.

It’s amazing how you can just toss the peanuts in the Vitamix, turn it on and watch the magic happen. See those flecks of vanilla bean perfection.

Homemade Honey Roasted Peanut Butter Recipe: Ingredients & Substitutions

As always, the quality of ingredients you use will determine the deliciousness of your final product. In my years of making homemade peanut butter.

Honey Roasted Peanuts

I have found that Trader Joe’s honey roasted peanuts yield the absolute best homemade peanut butter ever. If you’d prefer to use regular peanuts, or roast your own, that is totally great too.

Cocoa butter

Since I try to avoid dairy, it is hard for me to find ingredients that are excellent fat substitutes that don’t make the final product taste like coconut. However, this raw cocoa butter totally wins, plus it’s super high in antioxidants and smells like heaven. If you don’t keep cocoa butter on hand, feel free to substitute ghee or coconut oil.

Vanilla Beans

I have professed my love for vanilla beans in this recipe post. They impart such a deep, rich flavor to this peanut butter that I can’t even begin to explain in words. I seriously just grab a spoon and dive on in. I’ve made homemade peanut butter more times than I can count. But this recipe takes the cake. Of course, if you don’t have vanilla beans you could substitute vanilla extract…although I highly recommend using beans if you can. Vanilla bean paste is also a great alternative.
