Toasted SunButter Recipe


 

 

Peanut butter is one of my favorite things to add to things, smoothies, oatmeal, on apples, or to just to eat off a spoon even. Since I am not allowed peanuts though right now I had to figure out a new alternative to it that I could make easily and would still give the nutty flavor that peanut butter has.I found that Sunflower seed butter has the same nutty flavor and really has the same constancy as well. I made two different batches of this, one that is a bit thicker and is raw and a second that is smoother and toasted.  

Ingredients:

Raw Sunflower Seeds

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

This is a real simple thing to make for someone also who has a nut allergy because it really is close to peanut butter  and can be used the same way.

First spread the sunflower seeds on a baking sheet and place into the oven at 350˚ for about 10 minutes or until you smell a nice toasted aroma.

Once the sunflower seeds have toasted you can then place them into your food processor and start it until it is all ground up.

Start by adding a few tablespoons of olive oil and start the food processor again, repeat this until you get the texture that you want for your sunbutter.

This batch is from the toasted sunflower seeds that I made to a nice creamy texture that was perfect for spreading onto things.

This one was from a batch that I did not toast the sunflower seeds before throwing them in the food processor and made it thicker more chunky texture. My favorite would have to be the more creamy toasted version .
