Directions

  • Pour the sunflower seeds into the Tall Cup and pulse until crumbly and lumpy in consistency.

  • Add in the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth and slightly creamy.
  • Serve on toast and crackers or with fruits and vegetables like apples and celery.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • For nut-free take on “bugs on a log”, a childhood snack staple, add a layer of sunflower butter on celery and sprinkle on a few unsweetened raisins or dried cranberries.

Made this with honey roasted sunflower seeds and it was a hit. Question is how long does it last and how do you store it ?
It can last 2-3 weeks if you store it in a sealed glass jar (ex. mason jar) and keep it refrigerated.
