Sunflower Seed Butter

Your photo should meet the following requirements:

  • It must be in jpg/jpeg format
  • It must be no larger than 800px wide by 600px tall
  • It must be have a file size of less than 1Mb
  • Focus on the food: Use good lighting and take a close - up shot.


16 oz sunflower kernels
1/4 cup (approx) canola or other flavorless oil


In a food processor, grind the sunflower seeds until they are very finely processed and are beginning to clump together. With the processor still running, slowly drizzle in the oil. This is important - if you add oil at the beginning you tend to use too much. Add the oil slowly until you reach the desired consistency.

Store in the refrigerator.

Plain this goes well in sunbutter cookies, mock pesto sauce, etc. For sandwiches, I spoon out the desired amount and stir in a bit of sugar.



Be sure to research and find a safe sunflower seed source.
