Organic Sunflower Butter Recipes

Posted by Naturally Nutty on 9/19/2014

Sunflower Butter We know that organic sunflower butter is delicious as a spread for breads, crackers, or veggies. Are you ready to use it for baking as something different from almond or peanut butters?

Organic sunflower butter is a great ingredient that will add powerful vitamins and minerals to your baking. The small but mighty sunflower seed is a very nutrient-rich addition to any diet.

If you use organic sunflower butter in your baking, you will benefit from significantly more zinc, iron, vitamin E, magnesium, and unsaturated fats than you would gain from the same serving of peanut butter. And you don’t have to worry about triggering anyone’s peanut allergy if you’re planning to share your baking!

Eating sunflower seeds whole or in organic sunflower butter will promote bone health because of the magnesium and copper, restore skin cells, and help alleviate arthritis pain because of the vitamin E and antioxidants. It will calm and relax because of the high levels of magnesium, and more! Just 100 grams of sunflower seeds provide 40% of your recommended daily intake of protein.

Here are some delicious recipes found by our Naturally Nutty team we would love to share with you:
