If you or your children have nut allergies and cannot use peanut butter or other nut butters, give SunButter a try. Unlike Soy butter (yuck), it tastes just like peanut butter. It is made from sunflower seeds I use it in recipes that call for peanut butter, so that my allergic son can safely enjoy them. I also spread it on toast or enjoy it any other way you would normally enjoy peanut butter.
It's National Peanut Butter Lovers Month. Peanut butter may be high in fat, but it's the HEART-HEALTHY kinbd. Make sure you choose a "natural" peanut butter that doesn't contain added oil on the ingredients list, or make your own from scratch!
