Sunflower Seed Butter

Great video on making your own almond meal and butter. My question is would I use the same procedure to make sunflower seed butter? Secondly, a food science question. Does toasting (almonds, sunflower seeds, etc) remove some of the health benefits? Or maybe toast in the oven at lower temps...

Yes you can make sunflower seed butter. Sometimes I find I need to add just a touch of a neutral oil, and I like savory so I add some spices. You could also add a little agave or sweetener of your choice.

If you are adhering to a raw food diet, the theory is that heat over 118 F kills the enzymes in food. If not, then just do what tastes good to you.
