Total time: 
Serves: 1 cup
  • 2 cups sunflower seeds, toasted
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 325 F.
  2. Spread sunflower seeds into a thin layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet and toast them in the oven until turn lightly golden and have a nutty aroma, about 15 mins. You may want to stir them at ~10 mins to make sure they don't burn.
  3. Remove the toasted seeds from the oven and pour into a food processor with chopping blade in place.
  4. Turn on the food processor and notice how the seeds turn into a finely ground meal (1-2 mins), then a clumpy mess, then a smooth/creamy consistency, and finally a sticky ball. This whole process can take anywhere from 5-8 minutes.
  5. With the food processor running, pour in the melted coconut oil and maple syrup and let it keep running for 1-2 more minutes.
  6. Add the sea salt, and voila...you have delicious homemade sunflower seed butter.
