Sun Butter!

Sun Butter is a butter made from sunflower seeds.  This is a great addition to your diet if you eat Paleo or Primal. Below are the simple steps for how to make Sun Butter.

You Need

  • 1 cup roasted unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1 ½ Tbsp macadamia nut oil
  • ½ tsp pure maple syrup


  1. Grind sunflower seeds in a food processor until you have a fine sunflower meal.
  2. Blend in oil until you have a peanut butter type consistency.
  3. Blend in maple syrup.
  4. Continue to blend until you have the consistency you prefer.  You may need to add a bit more oil.       
Makes 1cup

Tip: You can also add more syrup for a sweeter flavor.

I keep my Sun Butter in a glass container but you can use any air tight container and just store in your cupboard or pantry.
Would you make sun butter?
