Raw cacao sunflower seed butter

I don’t know about you, but I love a great nut or seed butter.

They’re perfect for spreading on toast and fruit, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I frequently snack on them by the spoonful (come on, you know you do it too!).

This raw cacao sunflower seed butter has recently come to replace my typical jar of peanut butter.

Ooh yummy goodness, is it delicious and nutritious (the best combo there is)! Best yet, this seed butter is very simple to whip up in your kitchen.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Now, if you’ve ever made a nut or seed butter, you’ll know that it requires quite a bit of time in the food processor in order to come into fruition. First, add the sunflower seeds and cacao powder in the processor and grind the ingredients for about a minute or until the seeds are a fine powder. Next, add the raw honey and coconut oil. Grind all of the ingredients together for ten to fifteen minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape the sides of the processor and to let your processor cool if it is prone to overheating. After fifteen minutes, the oils from the seeds should be out, and the mixture should be a thick paste. I like a thick nut butter, but if you prefer a runnier butter, feel free to grind the mixture for a little longer in order for you to achieve the desired consistency.

Store the butter in an air-tight jar and enjoy!

  1. GRACIAS FOR ALL YOUR WONDERFUL RECIPES FOR THE STOMACH, FOR THE SKIN, FOR BEAUTY, FOR THE HOUSE, FOR PETS, ETC.!! AND THANKS FOR CONTRIBUTING TO HELP SAVE MOTHER EARTH BY DOING THIS.

  2. Honestly, the traditional preparation of seeds, nuts, and legumes is new to me. It is something I plan on exploring more. Certainly, you can make this butter with seeds that have been previously soaked and then dehydrated.

  3. Hey Nadia! I made this yesterday & I LOVE it! I was wondering should I keep it in the refrigerator? I did last night but its pretty tough this morning. Would it stay fresh if I left it at room temp? Thank you so much for all your great advice, you & a few other bloggers have helped me along the way in transitioning from a highly processed diet to a whole food diet!
