Ingredients

  • Raw sunflower seeds (I used Bob's Red Mill)

You will also need:

  • Coffee Grinder
  • Open-mesh sieve the holes need to be big enough for the flour to fall through
  • Medium Bowl

Instructions

  1. Set an open mesh sieve over a medium bowl.
  2. Pour 1 cup of sunflower seeds into your coffee grinder and grind for 10 to 20 seconds. Don't grind too long, or you may end up with sunflower seed butter.
  3. Pour ground seeds into sieve and shake vigorously, then return remaining seed pieces back into coffee grinder. Repeat until almost all the sunflower seeds are finely ground.
  4. 1 cup of seeds makes approximately 1 1/4 cups flour.
  5. Store in an airtight bag or container in the fridge or freezer.
