I was first introduced to Sunbutter by a mom at my son's current school. Several children at the school have peanut & tree nut allergies, which means no PB & J sandwiches for lunch. Luckily, Sunbutter is made from Sunflower seeds and is almost identical in both texture and taste, making it the perfect alternative to peanut & nut butters. It does have a slight sunflower seed taste and can be mildly addicting, so watch out. :)
Step 1: Ingredients
SUNBUTTER- 1 tbsp per cup
RAW AGAVE- 1 tbsp You can also substitute raw honey
RAW Cacoa Powder- 1/4 cup
Coconut Oil - 1/2 cup You can also substitute cacao butter, but it may be pricey.
Kitchen Tools & Equipment:
Muffin/ Cupcake Liners
Small Loaf Pan or Baking Sheet
Step 2: Melt the Coconut Oil
Step 3: Mix in the RAW AGAVE & Raw Cacao Powder
Step 4: Make the SUNBUTTER Cups
Remove from the freezer and add the Sunbutter. Be careful not to let the Sunbutter touch the sides of the liners or it will peep through the middle of the cup when you remove the liner. I found that using a little less than a whole tablespoon was more than enough.
Equally divide the remaining chocolate on top of the Sunbutter. Place in the freezer for another 10 minutes or until hard.
