  • 16 ounces dry roasted peanuts (raw, salted or unsalted - if you use salted please omit the sea salt in the recipe), 2 cups
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt


  • Use a food processor. It works so much more easily that a blender. If you have a strong food processor it will even go more quickly.
  • Pour your peanuts into a food processor.
  • First you will get chunky crumbs.
  • Then it will start to stick together and to the sides of the processor. Turn off the processor and use a spatula to scrape down the sides.
  • Process for another 15 seconds and scrap again. Do this about 3-4 times.
  • Now process a little longer in between when you scrap down the sides and the peanuts will start to heat up and release it's oil which helps make it become a peanut butter.
  • In no time it will be creamy. I left mine a little chunky because I like it like this - sometimes. Go a little longer if you'd like creamy smooth. You are actually making peanut butter at this point.
  • Add the unsweetened cocoa powder, maple syrup and sea salt.
  • Process until all is incorporated completely.
  • Scoop into a jar with a tight fighting lid and eat whenever you want - like right now.
