Sunflower Seed Butter

I have a great alternative to peanut butter for you!

Of course you could have almond butter or even cashew butter instead of peanut butter…but this one is a SEED butter.

Sunflower seed butter!

Sunflower seeds are a great addition to your diet and here is why:

They have a generous amount of vitamin E which is great for balancing cholesterol, great for your skin, helps thicken hair, a hormone balancer, and good for your eyes, too.

They have a higher percentage of other vitamins and minerals, too,  such as copper, B vitamins, magnesium, manganese, and selenium.

All of that means a boost to your heart health, thyroid support, a guard against bone disorders, balances blood sugar levels, because of the fatty acid lipids it keeps your skin hydrated and wards off damage from sun damage and toxic exposure, and the high magnesium content helps regulate mood disorders

Here is the SUPER easy recipe:

2 cups raw sunflower seeds

  1. Roast the seeds at 350 for about 5-10 minutes.
  2. Put seeds in high power blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. It will take a few minutes, so be patient.  You could add a drizzle of honey while blending if you wanted it a tad sweeter.

**You could add a sprinkle of Himalayan sea salt before roasting if you want.

**Another idea is to add a pinch of cinnamon to the roasting process.
