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. :)
