What is Sunbutter?
Sunbutter is a delicious alternative to peanut butter. Packed with anti-inflammatory vitamin E and calming magnesium, it’s one of our favorite snacks at the clinic. Plus, it is so easy to make! Check out the process below.
Time: 10 minutes
Difficulty level: Easy
- 2 lbs sunflower seeds
- Olive or avocado oil
- Food processor
- Air tight jar
- Oven and baking sheet (optional)
Pick up 2 pounds of sunflower seeds from the bulk section at your favorite grocery store. (Typically $3-4/lb) If they are not roasted, roast them! Just spread out the sunflower seeds on a baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes, or until you can smell them.
Remove from oven and pour into food processor.
Turn processor on. As the seeds are churning, pour a thin drizzle of your preferred oil (we suggest olive or avocado) until the butter reaches your preferred texture. Add salt to taste.
Enjoy! Spread on your favorite fruit or vegetable: carrots, celery, apples, and bananas are great options.
Store in an air-tight jar or Tupperware for an easy and pre-prepared snack for work or school.
