If you don’t eat peanut butter, are following a paleo diet, or just looking for a tasty alternative to nut butters, try sunflower seed butter! It has a mild, roasted flavor and a creamy, thinner consistency that makes it super easy to incorporate into all kinds of dishes. Here are some of our favorite ways to enjoy it.

  • Mix spices into it, like cinnamon or vanilla, and use it as a dip for apples.
  • Use it in a stir fry for a creamy, tasty sauce.
  • Use it as a marinade for tofu or tempeh before lightly pan frying.
  • Add a tablespoon or two to a smoothie or smoothie bowl.
  • Make a SSB&J (sunflower seed butter and jelly, of course) sandwich, or spread it on toast and top with banana for a satisfying breakfast.
  • Swirl it into oatmeal and top with fresh tropical fruit.
  • Turn it into a dipping sauce for fresh spring rolls or veggies.
  • Bake it into cookies or bread.

Make a creamy salad dressing!
