This healthy homemade sunflower seed butter is easy to make and less expensive than store bought.  It's nut free, paleo, vegan and allergy friendly.


  • 3 cups raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 tsp - 1 tsp pink Himalayan salt*


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Spread sunflower seeds on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature.
  4. Put roasted sunflower seeds and salt in food processor and blend until smooth and creamy. **
  5. Store in glass jar in the pantry or fridge.


*I recommend starting with 1/2 tsp salt and then adding more to taste.  Personally, I like using 1 tsp salt for this recipe.

**When processing seed butter stop frequently to scrape the sides.  It takes time to get the sunflower seeds to turn to a smooth, silky butter so patience is key.
