"Use your favorite sweetener: honey, unrefined cane sugar, agave, barley malt, etc. (A light drizzle-about 1/2 teaspoon of real maple syrup tasted good in this!) It is very important to be certain the sunflower seeds you use for this recipe are fresh. If not, the butter will taste "off"-rancid. To store, use a covered container and refrigerate.

"This was delightful! I made half of the recipe. I don't have a regular food processor, just a mini one that has to stay closed while it's running, so I just added a tiny amount of oil, processed a bit, added more, etc until I got the consistency I wanted. I added just a small amount of honey for sweetener and no extra salt. Enjoyed on multigrain toast - thanks for sharing this treat!"
"Wonderful! I have tried store bought sunflower seed butter and I have never cared for it, but tried this since I had some seeds I didn't know what to do with... And this is fantastic. I had slightly less than a cup of seeds, so I didn't measure the other ingredients. Just buzzed these in the processor, then started drizzling oil (I used grape seed, as it was what I have) until it was the right consistency. Sweetened with agave (just developed a taste for) and it turned out great. Thanks for sharing."
"This is great! I made this in my Magic Bullet and used a bit of honey as the sweetener. It's a lot more economical to make this yourself than to buy those expensive nut/see butters and it only took a few minutes to do once the seeds were roasted."
"Cookgirl, this butter is so delicious! I had it this morning on multigrain toast, and both parrots couldn't get enough! I used manuka honey, and the caramel flavour went very well with the roasted sunflower seeds. I did go with Laloula's idea and add a bit of cinnamon, which added a wonderful flavour element. Yum, yum, yum! Thank you for posting - this is a new favourite! Recipenapped for Veggie Swap 24."
"really the BEST thing I've had in a long while...made playing "I recommend tag" and I would recommend this as a must try for all... this is better than any nut butter I've ever had...my new favorite thing-THANKS Cookgirl-what a great recipe share!!!"
"WOW, this is very, very yummy!!!!! I love the creaminess and thickness of the butter, which is perfect for spreading on something and also for having it plain. YUM! The taste is very distinct with a great roasty aroma. I might have roasted my seeds a tad too long so the butter turned very dark, but the taste was superb nonetheless. I left out the sweetner but added in some cinnamon. I will definitly make this again. Such a wonderful healthy spread! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, Cookgirl!
