Homemade Creamy Peanut Butter (gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free)

My family is obsessed with peanut butter. They go through jars and jars of the stuff. I thought it would be better to have a homemade version. That way you are controlling the ingredients: salt, sugar, dairy, etc.  I came up with this creamy, peanut butter recipe one day and the best part is… it took 15 minutes to make! It stores well in the fridge or shelf, and I love the addition the coconut oil brings to the butter.

  1. Yum!! I’ve made homemade nut butters in my Magic Bullet several times! They are so yummy! I love your pic of the PB here! I like that you used stevia in it and that you added additional oil… does that help it stay creamy? I never thought of doing that!

  2. Great ideas, my high school cooking class really appreciated the info. Would you be willing to write a few articles for our teaching site on the subject of Gluten? I have included our link to the Gluten page of the site, but we would love to get more information about this.

  3. does the coconut oil give it a coconut flavor at all? i can’t stand coconut but i know using coconut oil is supposed to be very healthy and i’m trying to use it more. just wondered if it changes the flavor of the peanut butter at all. hoping it would just contribute to the consistency and not taste like coconut at all – thought i’d ask! :)

  4. How much does this actually make, and do you know what the carb. count is? Also, how much granulated stevia would it be opposed to the liquid?

    • It makes one cup. I am not sure of the carb count but I imagine it is very low considering the ingredients. I am not sure how much granulated stevia to use since this requires liquid stevia. I have never tried it with granulated stevia. Sorry!

      • I did make it and found it did indeed make one cup of peanut butter. I looked up a number of conversion tables and came to the conclusion I could use two packets of splenda….It turned out pretty good, I’ll make it again. I also made cookies with it and again they turned out great, thanks for the recipe :0}

  5. I started making no bake pie recipes over 4 years age. The Dutch Apple Diner here in Lancaster, Pa was having a recipe contest. I entered a chocolate peanut butter pie. It got selected to be on their buffet for one week. Since then a have come up with over 35 recipes. Now I want to start a sugar free line. Since I found your sugar free peanut butter recipe, I will start with a sugar free chocolate peanut butter pie. We will see just how many other sugar free pies I come up with. Thank you. I will get back to you. Doug
