SUNFLOWER SEED BUTTER JOURNEY
If you are nut-free and gluten-free beyond like me then you know what a drag it is to find free-from treats that are healthy and store-bought! I'll get really excited about a product all to realize there is an ingredient that I cannot consume. Instead of feeling deprived, I decided to make my own. I make my own all the time. It's a choice to feel good again regardless of how hard it may be. My advice to you is to get creative in the kitchen and experiment and make recipes from your favorite bloggers! You will always have a choice. Chose wisely.
As an avid reader of baking blogs, I searched for the perfect treat that would be filling and delicious. Beth from the Tasty Yummies blog is definitely a blog on my radar for paleo and gluten-free eats and she should be on yours too. She's pretty keto as well.
It's a blog I trust that actually has delicious recipes and she's been around the health and wellness scene for a long time as a gluten-free blogger.
I was even able to sub in my allergy-free substitutes and it was still beyond amazing!
Whenever I see tahini in a recipe I sub it for a seed butter I can have. And that's what you can do too! Don't think you cant change an ingredient. Especially an ingredient like a nut or seed butter. This one originally called for Tahini as you'll see in her recipe. I subbed in Sunflower seed butter.
SUNFLOWER SEED BUTTER FUDGE TIPS
- I adapted this recipe to fit my dietary needs. The original recipe is by Beth at Tasty Yummies.
- Instead of Tahini, I use unsweetened Sunbutter
- Unflavored collagen powder (or flavor of choice) (omit if vegan) I use Vital Proteins
- For the candida version, omit all sugar, or just use a few drops of liquid stevia
