Ingredients

  • 1 cup organic butter, softened to room temperature
  • Alcohol-free vanilla stevia, to taste
  • ½ cup high-fiber hemp protein (I use Nutiva) or plain whey protein

  • 1/3 cup tahini or pumpkin seed butter
  • Hempseed and/or crushed pumpkin seeds, Brazil nuts, walnuts, or almonds, or roasted sesame seeds.
  • Optional: ½ tsp. alcohol-free flavoring such as banana, maple, anise, mint, or fresh citrus zest

Preparation

  1. Combine ingredients thoroughly and refrigerate until firm (about half an hour). Roll into golf ball-sized balls (a mini ice cream scoop works well), then roll in your choice of hempseed and/or crushed pumpkin seeds, brazil nuts, walnuts, almonds, or roasted sesame seeds. Keep refrigerated.

Sunflower Seed Butter recipe.

Sunflower Seed Butter

The heat from the food processor brings out the natural oils from the sunflower seeds, so there’s no need to add any oil. Blending the seeds into a paste can take a while, so I suggest giving your food processor a break about halfway through so it doesn’t burn out.
