Use sunflower seeds to create a nut-free "Nutella".
  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, raw, unshelled, unsalted
  • 6 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ⅔ cup powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons safflower oil (or mild-flavored coconut oil)
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla
  1. Spread sunflower seeds in a thin layer on a cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Let Cool.
  2. Place roasted sunflower seeds in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth (you should have a "butter"). Approximately 3 minutes.
  3. Add cocoa, sugar, oil, and vanilla. Process until all the ingredients are incorporated and the mixture is smooth and creamy.
