Servings 1 jar


  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (I have used sunflower oil as coconut is also an allergen)
  • 1 tsp honey (swap with a sweetner of choice)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch cinnamon powder (optional)


To make the sun butter

  • Into the food processor add the sunflower seeds and pulse them till they are powdered well.
  • Add the salt the cinnamon, the oil and the honey and process till smooth paste.
  • Transfer into a clean, moisture free jar for use.

To make the sandwich

  • Slice out a couple of slices of bread from your loaf
  • apply a generous amount of sun butter on the bread and top with thinly sliced slices of green apple ( swap to any other fruit that appeals to you)
  • Add school friendly granola to top it and it is ready.


Toasting the sunflower seeds lightly brings out a more aromatic feel but be careful not to burn it.
Swap the breads for a waffle if you like, be creative with a cookie cutter as well.. after all, it is lunchtime fun.
The fruits that we loved with it are pears, banana, strawberries and apples. so feel free to swap them around.
