    Sunbutter - What do I do with this stuff?

    Shop Now
    A very thoughtful person gave me a jar of sunbutter today. I don't really know what to do with it. I could eat a spoonfull or three out of it every day for the next few weeks I guess, but that seems kind of boring if tasty.

    What should I do with this stuff? What can it be used for?

    Last week, I made the nutbutter chocolate muffins based on the recipe from FNW's site: http://www.joyfulabode.com/2010/06/0...chunk-muffins/ She also made a recent batch of cookies with an adapted recipe.

    Oh really? That's depressing, I didn't realize that.

    Doesn't it also have sugar ("Dehydrated Cane Juice") added to it?

    I admit, it's really tasty stuff. I used to eat a spoonful for dessert before going primal.

    Only 3g of sugar per serving which is pretty miniscule so I wouldn't even consider that, but I do try to stay away from omega-6 rich foods. That's a shame, I was looking forward to doing something creative with it.

    good on celery, carrot sticks, or apple slices as a snack...
    blend with a bunch of other stuff to make snack bars or balls??

    There are some sunbutter satay recipes on the net. I haven't tried any of them, but they look tasty. IIRC most of them call for coconut aminos, too.

    Just eat it.... I was also very fearful of O6's but it's not worth it. Enjoy it while the jar lasts. It's not like you're gonna buy it again.

    In fact, yesterday I received 2 packs of slivered almonds. You bed I am eating them everyday!!! And I also got lentils, beans, and oats with it. You bet I will eat those too.....
