Five Spice Peanut Butter

5-ingredient peanut butter with sweet maple syrup flavor and savory notes of five-spice powder. Makes about 1 and 3/4 cups.
Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Total Time25 mins


  • 2 1/2 cups raw shelled peanuts
  • 1 1/2 TBS maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 TBS melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp five-spice powder (depending on your taste)
  • pinch of salt


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF (~177ºC). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • Spread the peanuts on the baking sheet in a single layer and bake for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until the peanuts start to brown. Once the peanuts are done, let them cool for a few minutes.
  • Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until you see a creamy peanut butter consistency. The coconut oil is necessary for making the peanut butter creamy and spreadable.
  • Store in a jar or airtight container and refrigerate.


Substitutions:[br]1. If you can't find raw peanuts, just buy a bag of unsalted roasted peanuts. I would still put it in the oven before mixing to give the nuts the additional roasted flavor.[br]2. If you don't have any coconut oil, just add vegetable or olive oil instead. [br]3. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin spice, and apple spice are great substitutions for the five-spice powder.
