Nut allergies are a big concern for a large part of the population, to the point where they are even being banned from grade school's & pre-schools.  Inspired by Rawified's Raw Peanut Butter cups, I wanted to create a similar confection that is not only delicious, but perfectly edible by people with peanut & tree nut allergies. It just doesn't seem fair that such a delicious candy shouldn't be shared by all. 

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

Two Bowls

Small Loaf Pan or Baking Sheet


Measuring Cup

<p>Waw, these treats look freaking delicious too! A must make sor sure!</p>
that looks awesome ! just a question about coconut oil : how much does it cost ? and where did you get it ?
You can buy it from most grocery stores. Try the baking isle or where they sell cooking oils. Also, you can try vitamin shops or an online source like Amazon. <br> <br>Prices vary depending on the brand. Anywhere from $7.99- $15.
These look really good - I love that they are dairy-free too. Thanks for posting!
Yum! I have all this stuff in my kitchen right now!
This is definitely my new favorite. recipe. It's good to have on hand in case I ever have a dessert debacle. I can whip these up super quick. :)
