The key to making sunflower seed butter is to be patient and keep processing. There's no need to add oil or water, just keep processing. The seeds eventually release their oil, and you end up with a creamy spreadable consistency.
Start off by roasting 2 cups raw sunflower seeds at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, stirring often.

Patience pays off! Lastly add 1/4 tsp salt, blend some more and enjoy!
I would recommend to make this seed butter in larger quantities -- it takes a while to make and gets eaten up very quickly! :) Next up we'll try some of our favorite types of nuts!
