We have had an excess of raw sunflower seeds so I thought, why not?
First I roasted 2 cups of raw sunflower seeds in the oven. 350 for awhile...maybe 15 minutes?
These went into the food processor with some flax seeds that I had on hand...and after sometime on the low setting, I cranked it up to high. First, it became broken down like crumbs...then it began to clump.
Next, I added coconut oil...probably about 2-3 tablespoons, with the food processor on low...
This really made it clump up! I thought I was in trouble, but then I added a tablespoon of EVOO! This helped smooth it out! I probably could have added more to make the butter smoother, but I was ok with the thickness.
For extra yum factor, I added some cacao, and a bit of sea salt to bring out more flavor.
I spread some on a slice of gluten free UDI's white bread and boy was I happy!!!
so proud I cleaned out the pantry and made something yummy and healthy!!
