Perfect for back to school, this sunflower seed spread is a great almond or peanut butter alternative that is very useful with growing allergy concerns.

Whether you are allergic to nuts, have a child who is, or have simply chosen to remove them from your diet, this sunflower seed butter is a delicious alternative. The creamy nut-free spread is easy to make at home, as it simply involves roasting the seeds in an oven and putting them through a heavy duty food processor.

To make the sunflower seed spread a little more sweet than it would naturally be, the 'Oh She Glows' blog suggests adding cinnamon, coconut sugar and virgin coconut oil. Vegan and gluten-free too, this peanut butter alternative is perfect for the increasingly selective diet.
