Sunbutter. Almond butters only competion.

As a paleo dieter, I do not eat legumes thus I do not eat peanut butter. I could eat peanut butter straight out of the jar with a spoon and did on several occasions. BTW Peter Pan Honey Roast was the best for straight out of the jar goodness. But the sun has set on peanut butter and I's day. And a new sun is rising and it is making sweet sweet butter... Sunbutter! Sunflower seed butter.

It is a minimally processed seed butter which only has 4 ingredients. Sunflower seed, dehydrated cane juice, salt and natural mixed tocopherols to preserve freshness. According to wikipedia "Tocopherols (or TCP) are a class of chemical compounds of which many have vitamin E activity." It actually helps reduce free radicals in the body so it's not a bad thing. Again, this is probably not pure paleo through and through but I allow myself the tiniest leeway.

I love both varieties of the Sunbutter. They have a creamy and a natural crunch. Both are so good. You get the familiar peanut butter taste with a strong roasted sunflower seed flavor. It tastes a lot like eating roasted and salted shelled sunflower seed with peanut butter. I mostly eat it with a spoon but goes so good on apples and bananas. A tablespoon or two add to a hemp protein shake with almond milk and banana make a delicious and powerfully nutritious shake. Try a jar, you'll like it I'm sure.
