Raw sunflower seeds can be roasted in the shell or they can be shelled prior to the roasting process. Once roasted, sunflower seeds make a good snack for both children and adults as 1/3 cup of seeds only have 107 calories. Sunflower seeds are harvested in the late summer and the roasted seeds can be used for everything from a snack to oils and flours.
Heat a dry skillet over low to medium heat until hot.
Pour approximately 1 cup of hulled sunflower seeds into the hot skillet.
Roast the seeds until golden brown, using the wooden spoon to stir often to prevent burning.
Transfer the roasted sunflower seeds to paper towels to cool immediately after the roasting process.
