Peanut Butter Substitute

My children used to LOVE peanut butter, until they became allergic to peanuts and all tree nuts! They so missed their peanut butter and jelly sandwiches & apples dipped in peanut butter. Just recently, however, I discovered sunflower seed butter at Trader Joe's. It looks like peanut butter and tastes very similar to peanut butter, especially if you add a little honey. The health benefits are great too. Sunflower seed are high in fiber, protein, B vitamins, zinc, and vitamin E to name a few.
Bon Appetit!
