Homemade Sunflower Butter

What tastes better than peanut butter? Sunflower butter tastes better! And it’s so easy to make.

Check out the recipe below 🙂

You will need:

3 cups raw, unsalted hulled sunflower seeds

1-2 tablespoons sunflower oil

A pinch of sea salt

Preheat your oven to 350F.

Spread your sunflower seeds onto a large baking sheet. Be sure to have them a thin layer.

Place them in the oven for a total of 10-15 minutes.

After the first 5 minutes, rotate the seeds every 3 minutes until seeds are golden brown.

Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool for a couple of minutes.

Add the roasted seeds to the bowl of your food processor or high powered blender. Blend/pulse, for a total of 10-12 minutes.

While the machine is running, add oil (1 tablespoon at first) and a pinch of salt.
If you feel that your butter needs a bit more liquifying action, add additional oil. The full breakdown process will take 10-12 minutes. Turn off your machine once in awhile to scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Store your butter in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
