  • Preheat the oven to 325F.
  • Add the sunflower seeds to a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Spread the sunflower seeds out into a single layer and bake in the oven at 325F for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, check the seeds to see if they have started to brown.
  • Continue to cook for 3-5 more minutes staying very close to the oven and using your nose to detect if the seeds start to smell done.
If you don't have coconut oil, you can also use avocado oil.
