SunButter is super close to Peanut Butter in taste. It is purely made with sunflower seeds and a little vanilla.
My Paleo SunButter recipe makes a smooth and slightly dry sunflower seed spread that goes great with waffles, with jam on toast and great for Asian cuisine.
What is Paleo?
The Paleo diet, also popularly referred to as the caveman diet, Stone Age diet and hunter-gatherer diet, is a modern nutritional diet of wild plants and animals eaten by humans during the Palaeolithic era
The Paleo Diet therefore recommends avoiding any foods that were not available to humans at that time, including dairy products, grains, legumes, processed oils, refined sugar, coffee and alcohol.
Recipe: Paleo SunButter
