Simple Homemade Sunbutter
Peanut butter is sometimes too much flavor for me, and so I’ve been buying almond butter and other expensive nut butters for the past few years. I found out though that I can buy a big bag of organic , raw sunflower seeds from Azure Standard (if you haven’t bought things in bulk from there yet, that’s the way to get good quality, organic bulk foods at great prices) and make several batches of sunbutter for way less than a single jar of almond butter.
And it’s delicious.
It’s subtle but also rich and creamy and PLUS it’s allergen-friendly (if you have a kid who can’t take nut butters to school or daycare). It’s also a great source of Vitamin E (which helps fight off free radicals in your body that come from processed foods, chemicals, and pollution), magnesium (helps with sleep, relaxation, and stress), and energy powered by fats and carbohydrates.
We eat it on toast with either jam or bananas and cinnamon, with muffins, spread out on a banana or with a sliced apple.
