Sunflower butter ‘Sunbutter’ is one of the easiest foods I have ever made // You need just roasted sunflower seeds + a food processor- that’s it! // Sunbutter can be enjoyed by all, but is especially great for those who are avoiding tree nuts and/ or peanuts (which is a legume) // I am peanut free and Sunbutter satisfies my longing for peanut butter // I’ve done the calculations & you will save half of your money if you make it fresh at home, like the recipe below // –> per 2 Tbsp of Sunbutter it is just $ 0.22 & buy it in bulk -just $0.18 // compare these homemade options to already-made Sunbutter in a jar, which costs double the amount at $0.43 per 2 Tbsp! // fresh sunbutter is also a wonderful option those avoiding sodium (you don’t need to add any salt!) //

Note: Be cautious of the ingredients of the roasted sunflower seeds you buy. Nature’s Harvest Brand of Roasted and Unsalted Sunflower Seeds from Walmart does contain vegetable oil from peanuts and soy.
