This is my new craze ❤ I use it for everything. Breakfast chia bowls, spread on bread or pancakes with berries. Yum.If you allergic to nuts like me then this is an awesome option to all the nut butters out there. Also by soaking and drying the seeds first you get rid of all the phytonutrients that seeds, nuts and grains contain. It may take a little longer to prepare, but you get to enjoy the full spectrum of nutrients the seeds got to offer with no harm to your gut.
What you do to activate
- Soak a pack of your seed of choice for 8 – 24 hours
- Rinse the seeds and spread them thin on baking sheets
- Dry for 5 – 8 hours on max 80 degrees
When I do this I soke and dry 3-4 types of seeds at the time so I don’t have to do it so often.
Making the butter
- Blender with a s-blade
- 2 cups of your seed of choice
- 2-3 spoons of organic virgin coconutoil
Put items in blender. Blend for 2-3 min. DONE! Store in a reusable container♡ enjoy as is.
Did you know that a 2,5 cup of sunflower seeds contain about 85 % of your daily intake of vitamin E, and 70 % of your copper requirements? And that 100 grams of sesame seeds contains 97% of your needed calcium, 81 % of iron and 87% of what you need of magnesium in a day? What is not to love about that.
Next I will try to add some raw chocolate powder, a little vanilla and some stevia and see what happens 😱
