Maple Cinnamon Sun Butter (nut free, gluten free, dairy free) Recipe

I’ve been doing a little nut-free thing lately as part of our group detox (and you should totally join us next time btw). Nuts are super good for you if you can tolerate them, but as part of our detox we eliminate common allergens for a period of time and then reintroduce them to make sure we don’t have any sensitivities or allergies.

This is all well and good, but I missed putting almond butter or peanut butter on my apples. I teach my clients that there are always healthy substitutions for our cravings. It just takes a little creativity.

They say that necessity is the mother of invention right? Well, nuts may not be allowed on our cleanse, but sunflower seeds are. That got my wheels turning.

Enter Sun Butter. But not just any sun butter.

 

Maple Cinnamon Sun Butter - Deliciously nut-free, gluten-free, dairy-free. Only 5 simple ingredients! www.justrealstuff.com

I blended up some roasted sunflower seeds and it tasted pretty good, but it was kinda dry and missed a little pizzazz. So . . . I added some coconut oil for creaminess, cinnamon for flavor, and maple syrup for just a hint of sweetness. The results were amazing.

This recipe has only five ingredients and comes together in about five minutes. It’s so delicious, and good for you too.

It’s great on apples, celery, crackers, by the spoonful . . . you get the idea.

Just try to use a little more moderation than I did while making and tasting it 🙂
