Dairy Free Vegan



Cook Time



  • 4.4-ounces sunflower seeds
  • 5.3-ounces almonds (skin on)
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Dash of nutmeg to taste
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1 1/5 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Pinch of salt (to taste)


  1. Preheat the oven to 370°F/fan 338°F/gas 5.
  2. Spread sunflower seeds and almonds on a baking tray and roast for around 10-12 mins.
  3. When done, whizz roasted sunflower seeds and almonds in a blender or food processor for around 15-20 mins until you have a smooth creamy paste. You might need to stop the blender/food processor a few times to scrape the sides. Be patient. The longer you wait, the smoother your nut butter will be.
  4. Transfer to a bowl. mix in spices, vanilla, coconut oil, maple syrup, and salt. Adjust to your own taste if needed.
  5. The spices will make this Almond & Sunflower Seed Butter solidify slightly. If you want the nut butter to be super smooth, simply transfer it back to the blender and whizz for a few minutes until you have the desired consistency.
  6. This Almond & Sunflower Seed Butter will keep in an airtight jar in the fridge. It will harden with the cold, but it just takes a few minutes at room temperature to soften.
