DIY sunflower seed flour is a nutritious, nut-free alternative to almond flour! It is quick and easy to make and is a fraction of the cost of almond flour and other nut flours.




  1. Place the sunflower seeds in a high speed blender or food processor. If using a coffee grinder, only grind 1/3 cup or 1/2 cup at a time.
  2. Process for 30 seconds. Scrape down sides repeat, until the seeds resemble a mostly fine flour with some larger pieces throughout.
  3. Transfer the flour to a mesh sieve set over a bowl. Sift the flour to remove any of the large pieces. Reprocess the large pieces to a fine flour and sift again.


Storage: Store the flour in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer for up to 6 months.

Coffee Grinder Tips: If you use your coffee grinder for coffee, too, be sure to wipe it out to remove any traces of coffee and coffee oil. You can pulse a bit of bread in the grinder to remove any final traces (discard the bread afterwards). For more even grinding, I recommend shaking the grinder as you grind the seeds.
