Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Place sunflower seeds into a food processor and blend until fine. Add flaxseed, coconut flour, baking powder, SweetLeaf®, and salt. Process until combined.

Dice cold butter and place in food processor. Pulse until crumbs form. Add eggs and buttermilk and process until well combined, forming a dough. Transfer to a bowl and stir in currants.

Grease a 12-capacity muffin pan, and evenly fill with batter. Bake 20 minutes until golden brown. Loosen around edges with a butter knife and enjoy warm.

Recipe Notes:

    • If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, add 1 Tbsp. of white vinegar to 1/2 cup of milk, and let it sit for a few minutes without stirring. Once it looks thickened, stir and add to the recipe per directions.
    • If there are no nut allergies in your family, almond meal can be used in place of sunflower seeds.

    Love this recipe. Thank you for making it tree nut free. It is so hard to find good low carb and nut free recipes. My daughter has severe allergy to tree nuts.

    You guys are a lifesaver since I love Irish Soda Bread and haven’t been able to have any since I went grain free.

    Is the switch 1:1 from 2 cups sunflower seeds to 2 cups almond flour, or is there a decrease in the amount of almond flour since the seeds are measured whole and then ground?

    • SweetLeaf Stevia

      If you are substituting the 2 cups sunflower seeds for almond flour, you should use 1 3/4 cup of almond flour.
