Flash back to the time I used to make our sunflower seed butter from scratch!
1 cup of organic sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil
I roasted the seeds in the oven for about 10 minutes, stirring it about every 2 minutes.
I let them cool down for about 30 minutes
I started processing about 1 cup of seeds (that's all I could fit into my food processor)
I used both extra virgin olive oil and organic coconut oil for the balance of fats for our son.
I processed for awhile because I didn't want to burn out my processor, she's old (it was like churning butter lol... )
After about 45 minutes, I ended up with creamy organic sunflower butter (there were minor pieces in the finally product but it is barely noticeable).
I did not add anything to it! I DID NOT add salt, or sweetener as other recipes advise because the taste was great without! 1 cup does not yield a lot, about 4 oz. Next time I will do 3 cups at a time to fill up the jar.

Good luck and happy healthy living!!
