My one year old DS will eat anything, and one of his favorite foods is my homemade sunbutter. But, I can't think of anything to do with it, except smear it on whole grain bread with some smooshed up fruit.<br><br>
Anyone got any great ideas for how to use Sunflower seed butter?

I use it the same way I would use peanut butter. Ants on a log, as a dip for veggies, spread on crackers. I have even made cookies out of it.

I use pumpkin seed butter mostly rather that sunflower, but I use it in sauces and it's delish. I make hummus with that instead of tahini and it's great. My kids don't like tahini, and I stay away from sesame seeds mostly.

We have to be peanut free in this house, so I use sunbutter in all of my recipes that call for peanut butter. Make peanut sauce (well, I guess it should now be called sunbutter sauce) and put it on pasta.<br><br>

Fantastic thread!!...........peanuts are the "dirty nut" and I mostly use sunflower nut butter. My twins love it on their morning toasties!! I should make some cookies for them with it. I know it costs a lot more than cheap sugary PB but it's worth it!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="carrot">

Target has sunbutter for 2.99 and trader joes for a little over 3.00 iirc.<br><br>
we make "pb' and j sandwhiches and use it for dip, which for ds is almost everything lol. he likes it with apples especially. I'm going to make cookies with it one of these days i was told to not be alarmed if they turn green while cooking though!

<div style="font-style:italic;">I just tried almond butter and wasn't impressed. How does it compare to sunbutter?</div>

the almond butter i tried yesterday was grainy and sunbutter isnt. IMO sunbutter tastes like...well...sunflowerseeds but has the same consistancy of creamy pb more or less
