Check out Corinna's November recipe of the month

Homemade Sunbutter 2 cups raw sunflower seeds

3 Tbsp. grapeseed oil

Stevia, honey, or agave nectar to taste (optional)

In the oven, on a cookie sheet, lightly toast the sunflower seeds until lightly browned. You may have to take them out and stir them up a few times. Keep a close eye on them. It doesn't take long for them to brown and you wouldn't want to burn them.

Transfer the seed to a food processor and grind into a powder.

Add the grapeseed oil one tablespoon at a time and process to a creamy consistency. This will take a while. You should let your food processor rest a few times and scrape down the sides to keep things moving.

Once you have a creamy consistency, give it a taste. You can choose to add a sweetener at this time or be done.

Use this recipe in place of peanut butter in any recipe. Try it on celery or bananas for a healthy quick snack. I'd love to hear how this recipe turns out for you. Please feel free to e-mail me.
