Sun butter - sunflower seeds homemade butter
The sunflower seed butter, also known as the sun butter is a valuable substitute of the famous peanut butter. It was created to provide similar taste to children and adults who suffer the allergy to peanuts. Perfect on a slice of toast creates a tasty and healthy snack.

Sun butter - sunflower seeds homemade butter Directions
- Spread the seeds on a baking sheet. Cook in the oven for about 10 minutes at 180°C, shaking the pan occasionally, until they become golden. Careful not to burn the seeds because this will make the butter bitter. This step can also be done in a frying pan.
- Transfer warm seeds in a food processor (with blade attachment) and turn it on. Depending on the power of your food processor it will take 5 to 10 minutes to prepare the sunflower seed butter. During this time, you see the seeds change consistency, from crumbs to a dense mass, and finally into a spreadable butter. If you like you can add a little sugar, honey or salt. I personally prefer adding nothing and sticking to all natural nutty flavour.
I've been doing this for years cause my son is alergic to peanuts. Thank you for sharing. - Bettany
