This is a delicious, all natural alternative to peanut butter.

3 cups raw sunflower seeds
A pinch of sea salt
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Spread the sunflower seeds onto an oven tray and roast them in a moderate oven until lightly browned and fragrant. Keep a close eye on them while they’re in the oven to make sure they don’t burn.

Place the sunflower seeds and all other ingredients into a food processor or high powered blender. Process the seeds until they form a paste. This may take up to 20 minutes depending on what type of machine you have. In a basic food processor you may need to stop every couple of minutes to rearrange the mixture inside the bowl to ensure it blends evenly.
