Sunbutter sunflower spread
Now is a great time to try Sunbutter – both crunchy and creamy varieties are on sale in August! Whether you or someone in your family has a peanut allergy or not, everyone is sure to love the taste of Sunbutter. Its texture is consistent with that of peanut butter and it has a mild flavor of sunflower seeds. This delicious and healthy peanut butter substitute is made in Fargo, North Dakota works great for school lunches, snacks, cooking, and baking. Sunbutter is also free of many common allergens:
- peanut free
- tree nut free
- gluten free
- dairy free
- egg free
- sesame free
All the sunflower seeds used for Sunbutter are grown in North Dakota, Minnesota and South Dakota. SunButter gives kids and others with food allergies filling protein, great taste and other nutritional benefits, including: 27% of the recommended daily requirement of vitamin E, 8% of the recommended daily requirement of iron, double the fiber of peanut butter and the same level of protein, No hydrogenated oil, 0% trans fatty acid.
When substituting SunButter in your existing recipe, you may have to reduce the baking soda/powder by about 1/3. The chlorogenic acid (chlorophyll) in sunflower seeds reacts with the baking soda/powder when baked, causing the green color when the cookies cool. This is completely harmless! Depending on the recipe, a splash of lemon juice may help.
