The sunflower seed butter, also known as “Sun butter” is a valuable substitute of famous peanut butter. It was created to provide similar tasting spread for children and adults who suffer peanuts allergy. Perfect on a slice of toast creates a tasty and healthy snack.
- 2 cups sunflower seeds
- 0.5 tsp salt or sugar or honey
Prep time 5 - 10 minutes.
Instructions: Sun butter – sunflower seeds homemade butter
Spread your seeds on a baking sheet. Cook in the oven for about 10 minutes at 180 °C, shaking the pan occasionally, until they become golden. Be careful not to burn the seeds because this will make the butter become bitter. This passage can also be done in a frying pan.
Transfer warm seeds in a food processor with blade attachment and turn it on. Depending on the power of your food processor it will take 5 to 10 minutes to prepare your sunflower seed butter. During this time, you can see that the seeds will change consistency, from crumbs to a dense mass, and finally into a spreadable butter. If you like you can add a little sugar, honey or salt. I personally prefer adding nothing and sticking to all natural nutty flavour.
You can store this sunflower butter in the fridge for about 3 months or less if your’re keeping it at room temperature.
lot of love. B.
