Please describe your process.
You can go read it in the thread I did about PB Oatmeal Stout but basically I bought PB the the oil seperates in the jar like Smuckers and drained it off and then put the PB onto paper towels to allow the oil to soak out. What your left with is more like playdough fairly dry.

I would imagine using organic pb would make deoiling easier, seeing as it lacks the chemicals that emulsifies the fat and peanut butter. Right off the shelf most of the oil is already separated.

Or you could get some organic peanut butter. In that case the oil is typically floating on the top of the actual peanut butter so you can just pour that out. Let me know how this works. Sounds good to me.
--Edit--dang...I didn't see Tusch's response. Well in that case...I second it!

lol. Sorry about that. I hit post reply before I realized there was a second page. Then when I hit page 2 I was telling myself, 'please don't tell me someone posted this reply already.' Sure enough...there was Tusch. :-)

Thats maybe 1/2 the oil in the PB. You would still need to deoil it further in some way.

I also found that even after doing all that there was still some oil on top of the beer at the end of fermentation. When I transferred to the secondary I left about a 1/2" layer of beer so that oil would be left behind.

Why not just rack onto uncooked peanuts chopped a little, then rack again after a month leaving the chopped peanuts behind? I wouldn't use Peanut butter. They add oil to it. Just crush up some peanuts, uncooked might work better.

Uncooked peanuts have a totally different flavor. Cooked, chopped peanuts taste right, but they are so dense that I'm not sure much flavor would come out of them. The goal isn't to just use up some peanuts in any form, but rather to get the flavor of the final product to taste similar to peanut butter honey sandwiches.
I would imagine either way i will have to back sweeten with additional honey. I think using peanut butter would be best, and if its got some oil, then i could be careful to leave it behind at racking (oil floats in water/ alcohol).

Ah, yes my mistake, for unroasted. Might be best to get some uncooked peanuts then dry roast them with out oil and then Reduce it to powder using a coffee grinder or morter. You wouldn't have to deal with the extra oil. But for ease of sake, just strait organic peanutbutter might work. The reason I would go organic is to avoid preservatives that could affect fermentation. I remember that once I saw how they made peanut butter, they add oil to it so that the nuts and sugar are suspended properly. Just my 2 cents. Hope it works out well.
