This sunbutter is incredibly easy to make at home in your food processor and works as a substitute for peanut butter in most recipes!
- 2 cups roasted sunflower seeds
- 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon sea salt (only add if using unsalted seeds)
- Place sunflower seeds in your food processor and process for 9-10 minutes.
- If the mixture is still dry and thick after 10 minutes of processing, process a little longer. It may take an additional 5-6 minutes for the sunflower seed oil to release and thin out.
- Once the sunbutter has reached your desired consistency, add in maple syrup, vanilla and sea salt. Give the processor a few more pulses to combine, then turn machine off and remove the sunbutter with a spatula.
- Store in an airtight container at room temp for up to a week. Keep in the fridge for longer storage.
Definitely buy roasted sunflower seeds or roast them yourself in the oven. The roasting process allows the natural oils to be released and makes for a smoother and thinner texture.
