Sun Butter Review and Giveaway

My daughter, who is about to turn 10, suddenly decided she wanted to live a more vegetarian-style life. We have cut down on meat consumption in our house by a lot, already ~ meat isn't cheap! But when it comes to her food, on her plate, she wants more veggies and grains and less meat. I, being the supportive Mommy that I am, agreed - but I also of course started to worry. Will she start getting tired and cranky? What if she doesn't get enough protein? Peanut butter has protein...but sending peanut butter sandwiches in her lunch box is out of the question, a child in her class has an allergy. 

I found out about Sun Butter through a Google search, and went on a quest to find some. I live in a rural area that does not have a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's or anything like that. I was so happy to see that our local Walmart carries it! 

Her Review:
The verdict? She said it was "not quite as good as peanut Butter but really close" and asked to try it with some carrot sticks...her verdict on that was "it's delicious Mom!" 

I decided to try my hand at a few other ideas with the Sun Butter, to see how versatile it really, was I surprised! I made what I call "Roasted Butter Soup" (Roasted Butternut Squash and Sun Butter). It was fragrant and delicious! I entered it into a Sun Butter contest, and won a great sample pack to share with you all! I won 1 of 4 first prizes, in part because of your votes! Thank you for your support!


 Then we tried this recipe for Sun Butter cookies, and they didn't last more than an hour! My daughter still likes to dip her carrots in the Sun Butter, and I like it on wheat toast. 

Overall: this is a great product to satisfy the peanut butter craving if you cannot have peanut butter. It lends itself to recipes that peanut butter cannot pull off, and it is healthy and delicious! I had fun messing around with recipes, and everything tasted fantastic! If you are looking for peanut-free alternatives, you need to try Sun Butter! Perfect for homes with allergies or a vegetarian lifestyle.

  1. Yay, so happy SunButter is fitting your eating styles! Of course I appreciate the review since I blog for SunButter, but as a fellow mom, I'm eager to try the Roasted Butter Soup (we have cold weather coming in again in MN, so soup is on the menu; it will be fun to change it up!). Thanks for the review and recipes. Looking forward to following your adventures and great posts!
