Turmeric/Cinnamon SunButter Balls -

Updated: Jan 5

Well don't these look interesting! They're dense and delicious too. Perfect for a quick breaky on the go or in your next smoothie bowl.

Ingredients & Method:

  • 4 cups of raw sunflower seeds

~ blend in a food processor until finely ground - this may take a few minutes and include turning off the machine to scrape down the sides. Don't worry, you're doing it right.


Once the sunflower seeds are ground finely add,

  • 2 Tbsp coconut oil

  • 1 pinch of sea salt

  • a couple heavy dashes of cinnamon

~ continue to process until a dough forms. Roll into small golf ball sized balls.


In a bowl measure:

  • 1 tsp turmeric

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 pinch of sea salt

  • 1/4 tsp stevia

~ swoosh the bowl around to incorporate the dried powders. Then roll each sunbutter ball in the coating. Set aside in a container and refrigerate until you're ready to eat.


Enjoy on top of a simple mixed berry sorbet: frozen mixed berries blended with almond milk, serve with sunbutter balls and sugar free dried coconut.

Why sunflower seeds?


They contain trace minerals, zinc, manganese, copper, chromium and carotene as well as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids - types of 'good' fat that may help to protect the arteries. A good natural source of zinc, sunflower seeds are popular immune boosters. Seeds are a great addition to any diet - especially one where variety matters! (to me that's all diets). Lastly,


Magnesium!


About 50 to 60% of a person's magnesium is stored in the bone and plays a key role in bone metabolism. Researchers have found that even a mild ongoing magnesium deficiency can lead to a significant amount of bone loss. Sunflower seeds contain about 27% of your daily value. Eat up my friends!
