FourSide or WildSide+ Jar

  1. Add peanuts and salt to FourSide or WildSide+ jar and secure lid. Blend on Low speed for 15 seconds, then increase speed to High and blend until 50 seconds.

  • ummmmm…for the twister jar version…do you still use the oil?? It says reduce ingredients by 1/2 but only says to add peanuts and salt to the jar. Do you still use the oil and when?? Thanks! Oh…and can you use just plain peanuts or do they have to be roasted??

  • Do you need to refrigerate this peanut butter? How long will it stay fresh?

    AJsgran on

  • How long will this stay fresh. Do I need to refrigerate

    June on

  • I’m interested in raw almond butter. Will this generally work?

    LindaO on

  • sounds really good and healthy!

    Linda Bobenda on

  • How long will this last and how should it be stored?

    Kfuhrman on

  • I would like the directions for the Blendtec blender with the automatic settings please.

    Rosiview on

  • Could use other types of nuts if someone has a reaction to peanuts.

    karen on

  • I’ve used both jars and the Twister is definitely better and easier to clean. No need to add oil and salt only if you want the extra. Also great with almonds.

    Jana on

  • Hi sound delicious hope I will make it right

    Sheraz on

  • can you use full size blender container? i don’t have the small jar

    cj on

  • Yes, we included instructions for all 3 possible jar options.

    Blendtec on

  • I’ve made the Twister version – no oil (good), 1/8 tsp salt, 1C peanuts, and I added a T of coconut sugar – you can make it crunchy or creamy, depending on how long you blend it. It’s delicious. We don’t buy peanut butter at the store anymore.

    stampinsueduffy . on

  • You don’t have to use the oil with the Twister jar. Roasted are best but you can use plain peanuts, just know it may be a little more work.

    Blendtec on

  • This recipe doesn’t call for any of the preprogrammed cycles, directions are the same for all of our blender models.

    Blendtec on

  • Yes, check out our recipe for almond butter here: http://www.blendtec.com/rec…

    Blendtec on

  • Similarly, see our almond butter recipe here: http://www.blendtec.com/rec…

    Blendtec on

  • If you store it in an airtight container, it should be good for about 2 months in the refrigerator.

    Blendtec on

  • Store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 months.

    Blendtec on

  • Yes, you should store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator and it’ll be good for about 2 months.

    Blendtec on

  • HELP! I make this in my Blendtec, however, every time I do, the motor overheats. Should this be happening? I have to start the peanut butter, then put a bag of ice cubes at the top of the gear thing, then finish it after the system cools down and the "overheat" display goes away (requires unplugging/turning it back on).

    Even with the engine overheating, I do love to make homemade peanut butter!

    Heather Legler on

  • Thank you! I’ll give them a call! :)

    Heather Legler on

  • Delicious, and it’s a winner with my kids. Will continue to make it.

    JoJo on

  • Your blender has 10 speeds so a low speed would be 1-2, medium-low would be 3-4, medium-high is 6-7, and so forth. Does that help?

    Blendtec on

  • Yes I know it doesn’t…but my Blendtec has "speed up with numbers and speed down" I DO NOT HAVE MEDIUM HIGH!" I have presets like sauces, crushed ice, smoothies, etc! Other recipes posted here have the directions for both kind of Blendtec blenders. Am I to think you don’t have directions to make peanut butter with My Blendtec?

    Rosiview on

  • Ok so that’s speed up to 7 for 50? I guess because, previously they would say something like "medium high for 50 seconds, OR speed up to 7 for 50," I expected to see something like that. Thank you! (I suppose if someone makes a recipe on the new Blendtec they don’t necessarily think back to the old one.) thanks again for the info.

    Rosiview on

  • Great Jana that is the answer I was looking for…I’m waiting for my blender to arrive. I want to make almond butter with no oil or salt, just raw almonds. My Breville will make it with the help of oil, but not smoothly. Glad to know this will be the answer!

    PghPammy on

  • Is the Twister Jar version of this recipe the mini Twister or the regular Twister Jar? Also does anyone know if the Twister Lid fits both the mini and regular Twister Jars? The pkg I’m waiting for comes with the mini, but after looking online I’m thinking I’d like the regular size Twister Jar too, as it also has the gripper lid that can be used for single size smoothies or one cup of Bulletproof Coffee.

    PghPammy on

  • We know it’s confusing – we’re trying to figure out the best way to have universal instructions. Here are specific instructions for the Total Blender Classic:

    Add peanuts and salt to FourSide or WildSide+ jar and secure lid. Blend on Speed 1 (Low) for 15 seconds then increase speed to Speed 9 (high) and blend until 50 seconds. Using a spatula, move peanuts towards center of jar, add oil and secure lid. Blend on Speed 3 for 50 seconds, then blend on Speed 5 for 50 seconds.

    For peanut butter with no oil added, you need to blend the peanut butter for an additional 50 seconds to ensure creamy and smooth peanut butter. After the second cycle, where the oil would be added, run an additional cycle at Speed 2 for 50 seconds.

    Blendtec on

  • It is for the regular Twister jar. The lids for the Mini Twister and Twister are different sizes (the tines on the Mini are shorter).

    Blendtec on

  • Can dry roasted, salted peanuts be used?

    Grannie14 on

  • Thank you!!! I’ll save these instructions because I definitely want to try nut butters. I appreciate your diligence in addressing this for me.

    Rosiview on

  • I have used salted, unsalted and honey roasted! All worked out great in the twister jar.

    I tried adding honey to the peanuts before blending and it changed the texture. I will try mixing honey in after I make the peanut butter in the future. I think the liquid honey created a binder and emulsified the peanut butter so the creamy and oily texture was not achieved.

    Either way the end product is delicious!

    I use the designer 725 on the dip setting with the twister jar.

    Butch on

  • Absolutely!

    Blendtec on

  • I made this peanut butter and it turned out great. My concern in the future is my blender moved around at high speed and my jar became worn at the contact points on the bottom. Is this a common problem on high speed?

    Chrissy on

  • How do you store your butters? In the fridge? I LOVE my Blendtec and use it at least twice a day!!!

    Renee on

  • Chrissy, this same thing happens to me and I have all but given up on my Blendtec. I was too stubborn to return it within the time frame they allowed and now I’m stuck. I went to a demonstration today for Blendtec hoping I would change my mind about the blender. I haven’t — but the man from Blendtec told me that they should replace your jar if the gears are not staying engaged and making the machine jump around. You might want to call them on Monday. I know I will. BTW, this was a huge store I went to and the minute I entered the front of the store I could hear the Blendtec running in the back of the store. Sounded like major highway construction. I don’t know about you but the sound is enough to make me crazy.

    Carol on

  • I just made this 10 minutes ago in the Wildside+ jar and it came out great. This was the first recipe I did in my new Blendtec :)

    I’m glad this works because I have both Type 1 diabetes AND Celiac…This is one of the few things I can have as a treat and even all natural peanut butter has added sugar in it. This is a much better way to have my fix since the only carbs are from the nuts themselves. No more unexpected glucose spikes.

    Yes you do have to scrape the sides down a couple times but who cares? It’s not a major chore to do that. A few scrapedowns and around 5 minutes later, the creamiest peanut butter EVER, and I did not use any extra oil.

    Note to readers…if you like your peanut butter more on the salty side like I do, you definitely will want to use salted dry roasted peanuts. I ended up adding another 1/2 tsp of salt (maybe more) after it was completed and just mixed that in on low speed because it still needed more. Clean up was pretty simple too…the machine did most of the work and I finished cleaning out what was still in there. No residue under the blade or anything.

    Paul on

  • Hi Carol, we’re sorry you’ve had some trouble with your blender. If you haven’t already yet, please give our customer service team a call at 1-800-748-5400. We want you to be happy with your Blendtec and if there is a problem, we want to address it.

    Blendtec on

  • Congratulations on getting a Blendtec! And for successfully making peanut butter in it. :) Woo hoo!

    Blendtec on

  • Yes, store them in the fridge. The oils could spoil if left out at room temp.

    Paul on

  • If I want to use the mini twister jar, how much nuts should I use?

    Dianne on

  • Truth be told, I’ve had the dang thing for over 6 months but it sat in the box because I owned a competitor’s brand already…but finally unloaded it and broke out the new Blendtec when I saw how much success everyone else was having with it with different recipes

    Paul on

  • what is medium high on the 725 please

    Dianne on

  • Use 1 cup of peanuts in the Mini Twister. Happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • It’s around 70 (about 3/4ths up on the slider)

    Blendtec on

  • You can do one of two things: 1) Stop blending before smooth. 2) Leave some peanuts out and "Pulse" them in after getting the smooth texture with the rest of them. Hope this helps, happy blending!

    Blendtec on

  • How do you make crunchy peanut butter using the wideside jar?

    Dianne on

  • I made peanut butter in my Twister Jar with only 2 cups of salt roasted peanuts; no added salt, and no added oil. By running 2 cycles on medium, it turned out perfect, however, it’s not as firm as store-bought peanut butter, so I’m wondering if it’s going to be OK to use in my Buckeyes candy recipe that our family makes every Christmas.

    Marcia Chesterman Osborne on

  • I made the this in a wild side jar.. it is really thick… and hot, will it be more peanut butter texture when it cools down?

    alli on

  • The texture of fresh made nut butter does not get thicker as it sits. You can chill the nut butter in the fridge for a stiffer consistency, and prior to adding to a recipe, as you mentioned. Purchased peanut butter has oils that are added to make it a thicker texture. Hope this helps!

    Blendtec on

  • We keep it in the refrigerator, but noticed that it wasn’t as thick as
    store-bought, so will try adding peanut oil only, to see if that makes a
    similar consistency to use for candy making. For daily use, I still
    like being able to only blend salted roasted nuts. Thank you.

    Marcia Chesterman Osborne on

  • Did it change after it cooled down?

    Blendtec on

  • You’ll follow the same instructions as the Total Blender Classic.

    Add peanuts and salt to FourSide or WildSide+ jar and secure lid. Blend on Speed 1 (Low) for 15 seconds then increase speed to Speed 9 (high) and blend until 50 seconds. Using a spatula, move peanuts towards center of jar, add oil and secure lid. Blend on Speed 3 for 50 seconds, then blend on Speed 5 for 50 seconds.

    For peanut butter with no oil added, you need to blend the peanut butter for an additional 50 seconds to ensure creamy and smooth peanut butter. After the second cycle, where the oil would be added, run an additional cycle at Speed 2 for 50 seconds.

    Blendtec on

  • i have a tom dickson xtream blender what do i need to do peanuts in it?

    mike on

  • Is almond butter made that way as well?

    Amber Marie on

  • I am also going to have to call again. I had a similar problem making icing. I was assured it was just a faulty jar after listening to the motor over the phone?! Now, I have my new jar (much higher quality), but I still have an overheating blender as demonstrated by trying to make peanut butter using this recipe.
