Make Your Own Sunflower Seed Butter

Making your own sunflower seed butter is easier than you might think. I won’t go so far as to say that this is a food you should always make yourself; there are some great off-the-shelf sunflower seed butters available, including my son’s favorite SunButter. But…

If you happen to have sunflower seeds that aren’t being used,
Or you want to control the specific ingredients due to another food allergy,
Or you want to control exactly how creamy your sunflower seed butter is,
Or you just want a project for a mid-week afternoon (or a project for a science fair),

Here’s a video that shows you exactly what to do:

Sunflower Seed Butter Ingredients: 1 cup sunflower seeds Up to ½ teaspoon salt (I used ¼ teaspoon) Up to 2 tablespoons sugar (I used 1 ½ tablespoons Sucanat) Up to 2 tablespoons oil (I used 1 tablespoon sunflower oil) Have you tried making your own sunflower seed butter? How did it turn out?
