Organic sunflower seeds may be tiny, but they are incredibly nutrient-dense. They're a great snack on the go due to their high protein and fibre content, but they’re also a versatile cooking ingredient. They're a good source of B vitamins, as well as vitamin E, which works as an antioxidant to protect cells from damage. They also contain mono- and polyunsaturated fats that help lower cholesterol, as well as copper, zinc, iron and folate.

Add a handful of raw or roasted sunflower seeds to a salad, vegetable dish, stew or soup to give it a great nutty crunch. They also make a great addition to a homemade trail mix or granola bar, baked goods like muffins or fruit salad. Our favorite is to roast them with a bit of coconut oil in a pan, then add a bit of maple syrup and a touch of sea salt. let cool and garnish your green salad.

Or you can grind them in the food processor to make your own sunflower butter or toast them in the oven with some oil, salt and maybe a touch of maple syrup!

These raw sunflower seeds are among our go-to products. They add great texture to the bread we make, but our main use is to grind them into flour or put them into our cacao energy balls, since we can't send anything with nuts to school. They make a beautiful flour for baking school muffins or cookies. Always fresh and delicious. Also lovely tossed whole into a salad. Highly recommend.
