I was searching goneraw for a sunflower seed butter recipe but didn't find one. I found some stuff on the internet and played around and made up my own recipe :)

Teacup: Yay! I'm glad you're excited. the Best part about making your own seed and nut butters is you get to control how much sweetener and salt : )

Zeke, I definitely think using a mortar and pestle would help to avoid raising the temperature. You could grind it into a fine powder that way and then add in the oil, salt and sweetener. It will take a little longer and a bit of elbow grease, but will probably work just fine. I would recomend using something hard and heavy like a stone mortar and pestle because it is easier to grind harder seeds than using the wooden kinds. Good luck!

Do you think using a mortar and pestle would work to avoid raising the temperature of the seeds? I use one for most other recipes requiring a blender but I've never tried making nut butter that way. I know most raw food diets don't require such extremes i.e. no blenders, but let's just say the people I'm cooking for are that specific on the preparation of raw foods.

I had sunflower seed butter from trader joes over a year ago, it was delicious but too sweet to buy again. i'm really excited about this!

no, but be free. do what you want. you can soak them, dehydrate them and then make the butter.

Do you soak the sunflower seeds first?
