Enter ALTERNATIVE BUTTERS. (say that with an echo, like you'd hear on Sesame Street or something)
Today I made sunbutter.
Oh. my. yummy. My Wee Ones didn't buy it though and wanted "old peebee bubber" not "diffwent peebee bubber". More for me! And lunches!
I lightly toasted my shelled sunflower seeds and lightly salted them in a dry frying pan on medium high heat - don't leave the stove. The instant they started to turn a little colour I poured them into the food processor bowl and they were perfect.
It took about four minutes for me to get the consistency I wanted with a bit of oil dribbled in it.
In the food processor, lookin' good.Sunflower Butter
from The Tasty Alternative
1 cup sunflower seeds
1-2 Tbsp oil of choice (I used melted coconut oil)
- whir in food processor for a few minutes, drizzle in the oil near the end.
On toast with real butter underneath and beside coconut butter.
