If you’re trying to get more fiber in your life, instead of pairing your strawberry jam with peanut or almond butter, SunButter ¡ªmade from sunflower seeds ¡ª is a delicious option. It contains almost twice the amount of fiber per one-tablespoon serving. As a bonus, it’s nut free, so it’s perfect for kiddos whose schools don’t allow nuts. This store-bought brand unfortunately also contains evaporated cane syrup, so why not make your own for less money and without the added sugars? This recipe whips up in minutes, and the fresh flavor can’t be beat.
Smear it on bread paired with jam; spread it on banana, carrots, or celery; or use it in recipes like these oatmeal protein bars or these peanut butter cookies. Its mildly nutty flavor is sure to become a new favorite.
