  I've just discovered Sunflower Seed Butter at my local New World and its delicious so thought I'd share it with you.  Well not literally as it would get messy sending it through the internet.

Whole sunflower seeds are great snacks on their own but can take a while to eat so the sunflower butter is a great alternative to peanut butter.  I had been using peanut butter but was playing having on my digestive system so thought I'd give this a go as its gluten free and its been great. 
Its slightly sweeter than peanut butter which is a good thing as it makes a tasty afternoon treat on a couple of rice wafers.  That and a protein shake tides me over till dinner time. Sunflower seeds have alot of health benefits and you can check them out below. Give it a go!
