Homemade SunButter Recipe — Make your own sunflower seed butter in minutes, and at a fraction of the price!
I’m currently enjoying a Sunday kinda Monday thanks to Mr. MLK. May we ever learn and remember his mark on this world.
And what does a girl like me do on a day like this?
Two Words. NUT BUTTTTAHHHH.
or rather..seed buttahhh, but whatevs.
Believe it or not, I haven’t had peanut butter in my house in weeks. WEEKS. That’s like 5 years in peanut butter age.
The fact is, I love peanut butter. (duh) Like a little too much. To the point where I find myself naked, alone, with the remnants of a carrot bag and an empty glass jar of Teddie’s at my feet.
…Okay maybe not the naked part. But you get which nut I’m cracking. I tend to show peanut butter just how much I love it too much too soon, to the point where we are teetering on the it’s complicated status.
Naturally, I seek revenge and cheat on him with all of his best friends. Almond. Cashew. Cookie. And now…SunButter.
Sure, they all share the same creamy affection, but nothing strums my heart chords quite like P to the B. SunButter comes in at second best though, and for that it gets my love and blog affection.
And did I mention how unbelievably CHEAP it is to make your own lovin’ spoonful of sunbutter? Don’t tell him I said so, but it’s even cheaper to make than [GASP] peanut butter.
Thanks to my man TJ’s, I can whip up a warm and creamy jar of homemade sunbutter in 5 minutes, with one ingredient, all for $1.99. Put that in your pan and roast it.
- 16 ounces roasted and salted sunflower seed kernels
- Pour sunflower seed kernels into the bowl of a food processor.
- Mix on high for 5-7 minutes, until mixture is smooth and creamy.
- Scrap down sides of bowl occasionally during mixing.
- Transfer to a jar with a lid, and store up to 2 weeks, or 4 weeks in the fridge.
Now trust me, you’ll think it’s never ever ever getting to a butter, but just keep mixing, and I promise you there will be spreadable love at the end of the sunflower seed tunnel.
Make it a great day!
