Low Carb Keto Peanut Butter recipe that is made with just 2-ingredients! Low Carb Peanut Butter is just 5 minutes away with this easy recipe.
To say we are peanut butter addicts in our family would be an understatement. A spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar for a snack is a common and accepted practice in our household.
We actually have troubles finding sugar-free peanut butter where we live and most of the time we have to either order it online (expensiveeeee) or make it at home!
We like making this recipe at home since it is so easy and I love that I get to control what is in my peanut butter.

Is Peanut Butter Keto friendly?
Unfortunately, majority of the store bought peanut butters are NOT keto. The reason is because most peanut butters are packed with added sugar. You can purchase peanut butter as there are sugar-free or no sugar added peanut butters out there but we wanted to give you an option to making it at home for a fraction of the cost.
Roasting the Peanuts for our Low Carb peanut Butter
This step isn’t 100% required and if you’d like to tackle making this recipe without this added step you are more than welcome too. The thing I’ve noticed when I’ve skipped this step is my food processor has to work THAT much harder and the smooth peanut butter consistency is much more difficult to achieve.
So just keeping those few things in mind if you are thinking about skipping that first step.
In reality you would be THAT much closer to making our Low Carb Peanut Butter Cups. I think that is an absolute win.

- 2 cups unsalted peanuts
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Add peanuts to a baking pan. Roast for 5 minutes, stir and roast for another 3 minutes. Allow them to cool for 5 minutes before adding to your food processor. **You may skip this step if you'd like BUT having the nuts roasted and warm is less work for the food processor**
- Add slightly cooled but warm to the touch peanuts to your food processor. Process for 1 minute, scrape the sides of the bowl down. Process another 2 minutes, at this point it would of turned into a thicker paste. Process another 1-2 minutes or until the peanut butter is smooth. Add the salt at this point, if desired.
- If consistency of the peanut butter is still slightly thick after processing for 5 minutes, add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil to the mixture, or until it reaches your desired consistency.
