Sexi Sunny Butter

There are so many ways to eat peanut butter! From a good old-fashioned peanut butter and jelly sandwich to just sitting down with a big jar and devouring it with nothing else but a spoon. A love this good should not be denied to anyone!

For our friends with peanut allergies or those looking to explore another option to peanut butter spreads, this recipe is calling your name. Our Sexi Sunny Butter uses sunflower seeds to create the smooth, creaminess of peanut butter so that you, too, may be launched into a beautiful realm of culinary comfort! Sunflower seeds contain far less saturated fat than their peanuty friends and have many health benefits such as high fiber content.

This recipe is so east and great to make in batches! It keeps wonderfully and you can do so much with it: spread it on apples, celery, toast, crackers, bananas, or our favorite, right out of the container with a spoon!

Sexi Sunny Butter
2 cups roasted, shelled sunflower seeds

Pour sunflower seeds into a food processor and blend for 5-8 minutes or until smooth. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator and enjoy! Yields approx. 1 2/3 cup of Sexi sunny butter.

Want to switch the recipe up?
-Salty: Add ½ tsp. salt!
-Sweet: Add 2 tsp. honey!
-Chocolate: Add 1 tsp cocoa powder!
-Smooth: Add ½ tsp oil at the end of processing and pulse, adding oil ½ tsp at a time until desired consistency is reached.      

NOTE: When processing your sunny butter you will notice it goes through phases as it’s grinding…it will look sandy, crumbly, then it may turn in to a ball, and then finally become smooth! If you like it a little chunky or thick, stop blending earlier. If you like it smoother, let it go for another minute or two.
