Simply Superb Homemade Sunflower Seed Butter

So easy, so simple, so tasty! No more words are needed for this lovely sunflower seed butter. Delicious served in a sandwich or with toast, fruits, and veggies; it is also good by itself on a spoon!

I decided to make my own as the store-bought ones all had sugar of one kind or another. Although I like some things sweet, I did not want my seed/nut butters to be sweet :) - so I got the seeds and got to work!!

If you purchase raw seeds, simply roast them in a skillet or in the oven; let cool and proceed with the recipe. Sunflower seeds are soft and does not take much time to process into butter. I have had this sunflower seed butter recipe in the drafts and had forgotten to post it!


2 cups Sunflower seeds, roasted
1/4 - 1/2 tsp Sea Salt


Roast the sunflower seeds in the oven at 350 F for about 10 minutes or toast them in a skillet; let cool.

Place the sunflower seeds and the salt (use the smaller quantity first - can add more if needed later) in the bowl of a food processor.

Pulse until coarsely ground.

Process until the mixture begins to clump and keep the motor going.

Quickly, the mixture begins to form into butter. Process until it is very creamy and as smooth or as you like it. 

Taste and add more salt if needed, and process until mixed well.

Scrape into a clean sterile jar and keep tightly covered in the refrigerator.

Serve with toast, crackers, apples, pears, bananas, veggies etc.
