It comes as absolutely no surprise to most of you that I am an avid user and huge supporter of sunflower seeds. I constantly talk about how underrated they are on my Instagram all of the time. I mean really, cashews move aside! Sunflower seeds are more affordable, nutritious and allergen-friendly. A lot of people have a nut allergy. All products containing nuts aren’t school-friendly so the reality of the matter is sunflower seeds are also more kid-friendly too.
Below I’m gathered some of my absolute favorite recipes that use sunflower seeds as a main or supporting component. Usually in place of recipes that would traditionally call for nuts. I can assure you the flavor and texture is virtually the same in all of these. Scroll through the list below. Click on the title to be taken directly to the recipe.
I’ve always been a huge proponent for sunflower seeds because they’re infinitely more budget-friendly and typically more accessible too. Most of these recipes call for raw sunflower seeds, I recommend only buying raw because they have a longer shelf-life and you can always roast them later on, if needed.
SAVE FOR LATER!
