  • 2 cup raw sunflower seeds, toasted
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp pure vanilla extract

  1. In a medium nonstick pan over medium-high heat, toast the sunflower seeds. Stir the seeds frequently to avoid burning them. Remove them from the heat and allow them to cool at room temperature before using then.
  2. In a food processor, process the sunflower seeds, stopping intermittently to scrape down the sides.Continue for about 2 to 3 minutes until the seeds turn into thick creamy butter.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend everything for about 4 to 5 minutes or until it becomes thick and creamy.
  4. Store in an airtight container for up to 30 days.
