Stupid Simple Sunflower Seed Flour

So easy it’s fool-proof! But why bother?

  • If you have a nut allergy (or gluten intolerance), you can usually replace nut flours with seed flours.
  • It is not only easy, but less expensive to make your own rather than buy hard to find seed flours.
  • When you process your own foods as needed, they generally give you better nutrition.
  • Sunflower seeds are packed with great nutrition: great source for protein, fiber, phytosterols, Vitamin E, B1, magnesium, selenium, folate, and more!
  • Sunflower seeds work on almost any diet!

Be sure to buy fresh seeds. They should have a little snap, not limp or yellow. Use raw, unsalted, unprocessed seeds to make your flour.

If you want to make this even better, you could sprout, dry, and then grind the seeds… I will post that later. For now, I’m keepin’ it simple and fast because the flour is needed now.

Here’s How

Start with fresh raw seeds and a coffee grinder, or food processor of some sort. I like working in small batches to be sure that I do not accidentally take it too far and make sunbutter. Use what you have.

Throw seeds into the grinder, put the lid on, and pulse 5-6 times.

In a fine strainer over a bowl, or sifter, add the ground seeds and shake gently to allow the fine flour to fall through into the bowl, leaving larger pieces behind.

Larger pieces go back into the grinder with more seeds to make more flour.

Keep going until you have the desired amount of flour.
