Honey roasted sunflower seed recipe thanksgiving many hoops

3 cups shelled sunflower seeds

salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

Place shelled sunflower seeds in a medium sized bowl. Heat the honey in a pan until it softens. This should take less than a minute. Add a little salt to the honey and stir. Then pour the honey and salt mixture over the seeds and stir until fully coated.


Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Pour the mixture onto the lined baking sheet. Bake the sunflower seeds until crispy, about 20-30 minutes. Stirring the seeds occasionally so they cook more evenly.

Allow to cool and then break apart the sunflower seeds as much as possible. They will stick together a bit like peanut brittle.

Serve as a snack. Serve on top of ice cream or yogurt. Sprinkle on oatmeal or cereal. Add to salads or cooked vegetables.

6 tablespoons cornmeal

3 tablespoons maple syrup

1/2 cup oil

Place sunflower seeds in a pan with the water, cover and simmer, for about 1 hours. Drain the water off and dab the seeds with a towel to remove excess water. Grind the seeds in a food processor or other grinder until they are as fine as the cornmeal. Basically, you are making a sunflower seed flour for the cakes.

In a small bowl mix the maple syrup & cornmeal. Then 1 tablespoon at a time, add the maple syrup and cornmeal mixture to the ground seeds until  it makes a stiff dough. Shape into 3 inch patties or flat cakes.

Fry the patties/cakes on both sides on both sides in hot oil. Drain excess oil & serve.
