A quick and easy recipe for you today. There is certain brand of sunflower seed butter that I love and can't stop eating, but I noticed that it has a lot of salt and sugar per serving. I decided to make my own butter so I can know what goes into it and I was just in the bakin' (is this considered baking?) mood.
All you need is:
2 cups sunflower seeds (salted or unsalted, whatever you prefer)
1 tbsp oil (I used sunflower seed oil)
1 tsp sweetener (I used coconut sugar)
1 tsp vanilla
1. Put the sunflower seeds into a food processor and put on high until they are forming crumbs.
2.Add the oil, vanilla and sweetener. Continue with the food processor; you will have to stop it a few times to push the seeds back down towards the blades.
3. Keep mixing the seeds until they form a smooth, buttery consistency (this may take up to 10 minutes)
4. Enjoy on toast, with bananas or just a big spoonful!

This recipe is very easy on your wallet; I spent under $3.00 for 1 lb of sunflower seeds, 1 tsp of coconut sugar and some spices for my supper. A bottle of of my favorite brand is $6.99! There is about 1 cup of sunflower seeds left over so it really is less expensive to make your own.
