I found this recipe on Heidi’s blog (101cookbooks.com).
And now here it is on my blog.
To say I love cinnamon would be an understatement. I add it to my food whenever possible.
Heidi uses vanilla bean paste, but I made this with good old vanilla extract.
The only downside to this treat is the loud sound of your food processor 🙂
Recipe Adapted from 101 Cookbooks:
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
2-3 T canola oil (sunflower oil might be better)
3 t vanilla extract
2 t ground cinnamon
1-2 T cane sugar
Toast sunflower seeds on a rimmed baking sheet in an oven at 325˚F until “golden and fragrant,” about 7 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
In food processor, pulse seeds with 1 T oil. Continue to pulse, drizzling in remaining oil. Add in vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar. Pulse until desired consistency, scraping down sides of blender as needed.
Delicious as a spread on a crisp apple 🙂
