Sunbutter? I put that s#!@ on everything!


SBT-19120-0 I created this post for my fitblr, but then decided that since some of my readers are looking for healthy and tasty ways to stay satisfied, AND since some of my readers suffer from allergies, I could please both crowds with this recent find. PS: This is NOT a sponsored post, nor is Sunbutter affiliated with this post in any way, shape, or form. I really just love the stuff, but I am hoping to connect with them on some level for a giveaway at some point. *hinthintnudgenudge*

Sunbutter made its presence known to me when I was searching for “nut-free muddy buddies.” I wanted to make the recipe safe for my after school program kids who love getting their hands dirty and who love making snacks, but who also attend a nut-free school. Fast forward to the grocery store where Keith purchased my first jar of Sunbutter for me. I use it just like I do Peanut Butter, but with the benefit of more protein, less sugar, and a nice taste! I am obsessed with this stuff. Just an FYI for my fellow healthy eaters and Weight Watcher peeps. SUNBUTTER IS NOT LOWER IN POINTS PLUS, so if you’re looking for a low point alternative to PB, this is not it. If you’re looking for something new, paleo, and delicious, well, then you’ve found it!

Hey there! It's a Sunbutter, fat free greek yogurt, banana, and spinach smoothie! DELICIOUS!

Hey there! It’s a Sunbutter, fat free greek yogurt, banana, and spinach smoothie! DELICIOUS! This smoothie is 6 points and functions as a meal replacement!

HERE’S WHAT I DO WITH IT…

1 teaspoon Sunbutter added to 1/2c. cooked Quaker Oatmeal = 4 total points plus (and 5 hours of staying power when eaten with fresh fruit).

1 tbsp Sunbutter in a fruit smoothie made with a water base = 3 additional added points, but DAMN is it good.

1 teaspoon of Sunbutter with sliced apples = 1 points plus

1 teaspoon of Sunbutter divided onto 5 Ritz crackers = 2 points plus

 

 

So…do it! Seriously–and let me know what you come up with, if you’re already a convert, or if you think I’m a complete blasphemer. Please note: Sunbutter does contain Soy, so remember to read ALL labels before eating, cooking, or buying any products.

    Hi Christine!
    Of course I LOVE your post because I blog for SunButter, so I’m a fellow convert. But also because I’m personally always looking for new ways to enjoy the stuff (although no recipe beats it by the spoonful in my mind!). Love the smoothie idea because it’s really quick and simple. I’m looking forward to following your adventures!
    PS/ I got the hint*nudge, ha: Email me and we’ll work with the SunButter co. team to put together a little giveaway if you’re game. Take care!

    Hmm…I might want to try this sometime. I don’t like peanut butter. I don’t like nuts in general, but I want to eat peanut butter because it’s good for you (right? kind of?). You say this tastes better? What does it taste like? I wish I could just try a little bit without buying a whole big jar.

      To me, it tastes like sunflower seeds with a hint of sweetness/toasted flavor to it. To me it’s also less sticky and easier to eat. I like PB, but I find myself needing a giant glass of milk which doesn’t really add to the points count in a favorable way. Yes, PB can be good for you if you’re using the natural no sugar kind which I used to eat. I buy the Natural Sunbutter, too.

    Naaah. I was able to lay in bed normally :3 woow! 4tats! cool! do you have any pictures of yours? :D anyways. unfortunately there’s no any sun butter here. can any butter will do? haha. I want to try it though, I’m alergic to oatmeal. but i guess a bit of amount doesn’t matter :3

    I have heard so many good things about sunbutter recently but I haven’t tried it! I’ll have to pick some up next time I’m at the grocery store because I am very intrigued.
