Sunflower seed butter is a tasty peanut butter alternative! Nut-free and super delicious. You can buy off the shelf but many have added sugar, my favorite are the ones with only ground sunflower seeds and salt so why not make my own! My daughter loves this homemade blend on millet toast, apples, pears or stirred in oatmeal.
1+1/2 cups roasted sunflower seeds
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 T. coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla
- Grind sunflower seeds for a minute then add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth (or to your liking).
- Add a pinch of salt if desired but not needed if seeds already have added salt.
- Cover and store in fridge.
- Use within 1/2 weeks.
Yield: 1 cup
