I learnt about the Fibonacci sequence in college. I read that the seeds of a sunflower, the spirals of a snail’s shell and even the scales of a pineapple are almost always arranged in this sequence. Math in nature! Amazing! So I was just reading about sunflowers, their seeds and uses on the internet. I came across sunflower seed butter and my interest was piqued! I straight away purchased a bag of raw and shelled sunflower seeds and we totally went wild experimenting with them.

First we simply munched on them because they were so yummy. Then I roasted them on a pan, with some ghee and salt. They literally vanished right in front of my eyes!

I had missed a vitamin dose of my son. The lady there told me to give him vitamin rich foods. If he is eating sunflower seeds, then I don’t have to worry about him getting vitamin deficiency 🙂

Sunflower seeds are a nutrient powerhouse. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins and essential fatty acids. Not only do they help control cell damage, improve metabolism but also have a calming effect on the mind and body.

I finally decided to make the sunbutter before we finish all the sunflower seeds. At our home, we love everything flavoured. So I decided to make sunflower seed butter with garlic and sunflower seed butter with sun dried tomatoes. You can add any herbs that you like.
