RAW SUNBUTTER CUPS (peanut & tree nut free)

Picture of RAW SUNBUTTER CUPS  (peanut & tree nut free)
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. :)

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.

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!
