I have friend with an extreme nut allergy. Added to that, she’s also allergic to coconut, so you can imagine that finding foods that we can both munch on it tricky to say the least.

That is until I created these crispy, crunchy, munchy, moreish sunflower seeds. Roasting them gives them an amazing deep nutty flavour and the ghee and thyme really make the flavour pop.

Sunflower seeds are keto-friendly and high in magnesium. They are also a fantastic source of vitamin E and can improve your lipid profile.

So, for your nut challenged friends, you’re welcome. Enjoy!

Anxious to try this and I have some roasted unsalted sunflower seeds on hand. It doesn’t make clear whether these are fine or they need to be raw seeds.

It's better to use raw seeds. What you can do is to bake them for only about 5 minutes (instead of 20 minutes).
