Whether you have allergies or are just looking for a change, sunflower butter is an incredible substitute.

Also known as ‘SunButter,’ it still has a pleasant nutty and slightly salty flavor – just like peanut butter.

The difference, of course, is that this stuff is totally nut-free!

So, from sweet to savory, check out these sunflower butter recipes.

I love them, and so will you!

15+ SunButter Recipes We Can’t Get Enough Of

1. Vegetable Nori Wraps with Sunflower Butter Dipping Sauce 

Vegetable nori wraps make a delicious, nutrient-packed meal or snack.

Thinly sliced veggies wrapped in a seaweed casing are fresh, flavorful, and fun. But it’s the sauce you’ll drool over!

The sunflower butter dipping sauce is incredibly good and adds the tastiest flavors to all the beautiful veggies in the wrap. 

2. Homemade SunButter Cups

Homemade peanut butter cups are a perfect combination of flavors and textures.

I love making candy bars like this at home because you can make them exactly how you want. For example, I like salted caramel in mine!

Try them with sunflower butter and dark chocolate for an allergen-free treat. These nut or seed butter cups are fantastic no matter how you spin it. 

3. Nut-Free Sunflower Butter Oatmeal Raisin Energy Balls

Energy balls are the ideal portable snack. They’re full of yummy and healthy ingredients and will keep you full and energized all morning. 

These chewy snacks are loaded with whole grain oats, honey, chia seeds,  and mini chocolate chips.

4. 3-Ingredient SunButter Cookies

Craving cookies but short on time? These three-ingredient SunButter cookies are so easy. 

I’d honestly say these are nearly perfect. All you need is sunflower butter, sugar, and an egg.

They’re crispy on the outside and delightfully chewy and soft on the inside. 

Better yet, this recipe is super versatile. So feel free to use other nut butters, like almond or cashew.

5. Roasted Rainbow Carrots with Sumac, Mint, and Toasted Sunflower Dressing 

Roasted rainbow carrots are both colorful and flavorful. They’re packed with nutrients and make a delicious side dish insanely drool-worthy

The carrots are roasted with fantastic seasonings, and the caramelized flavors are divine.

Meanwhile, the slightly sweet dressing with honey and sunflower butter is the literal icing on the cake.

6. Double Chocolate Sunflower Butter Bites

Soft, fudgy, and oh-so-indulgent, these little truffles are a dream come true.

Between the coconut flour, sunflower seed butter, maple syrup, and coconut milk, they’re paleo and vegan-friendly.

They don’t taste it, though!

Instead, they taste like decadent brownie truffles, and you’ll want the whole batch to yourself!

7. Super Creamy Nut Butter Dip 

Fruits and veggies are always a great option at parties. And they’re even better when you have something yummy to dip them in. 

This fruit dip features yogurt and maple syrup for a wonderfully sweet and creamy base.

SunButter (or your choice of nut butter) brings protein and a delightfully nutty taste.

This thick and creamy dip goes well with both vegetables and fruit. Plus, it’s healthy and nutritious!

8. Gluten-Free Monster Cookies

Sweet, chewy, gluten-free, and perfect for your next Halloween party, the cookies are every little monster’s dream come true!

You’ll make the dough with sunflower butter, coconut oil, honey, oats, and brown rice cereal.

You’ll add coconut flakes and chocolate chips for some chewy indulgence.

Before baking, top each cookie with candy-coated chocolate drops and bake until golden. Yum!

9. Butternut Squash Almond Bisque 

Butternut squash and almond bisque is a luscious soup that’s especially wonderful during the holidays. 

With an ultra-thick and creamy texture, it’s sure to warm you up. Plus, it’s easy to make and is ideal as a starter, side, or main meal. 

Substitute the almond butter for sunflower butter to make it nut-free.

10. Easy Baked Pumpkin Sunflower Butter Donuts 

I’m always up for a new pumpkin recipe. And with fall just around the corner, these donuts are calling my name!

Don’t worry; homemade donuts don’t have to be complicated. This recipe is easy to make and will become your new favorite recipe in no time. 

The combination of sunflower butter and pumpkin is absolutely delectable. It’s a guaranteed crowd pleaser and secretly (kind of) healthy!

11. Vegan Sunflower Butter + Chocolate Doughnuts

If pumpkin isn’t your jam, try these vegan sunflower butter and chocolate donuts instead. 

SunButter gives these sweets a nuttiness that’s super tasty and addictive.

Meanwhile, the texture of the donuts is wonderfully fluffy and moist, and that decadent chocolate glaze is downright sinful.

Make these for any special breakfast or bake sale. Since they’re vegan and allergen free, they’re ideal for everyone.

12. No Bake SunButter Granola Bars 

SunButter granola bars are quick, easy, and super-duper scrumptious. And with only five ingredients, these granola bars are terrific for breakfast.

They’re vegan, allergen-free, packed with flavor, and you don’t even need to bake them!

13. SunButter, Honey & Banana Muffins 

SunButter, honey, and banana muffins are full of nutritious and tasty ingredients. 

They’re also soft and fluffy despite being gluten-free, vegan, and allergen-free.

Between the nutty butter, sticky honey, and naturally sweet bananas, they’re just as indulgent as any chocolate or blueberry muffin.

They just also happen to pack in some goodness to start your day off right.

14. Gluten-Free Sunflower Butter Banana Bread 

I don’t think I’ve ever had a quick bread this heavenly with only three ingredients. 

Banana bread is a family fave, but once you add sunflower butter, you have a whole different treat on your hands.

Not only is this recipe great for any time of day, but it’s a fantastic way to reduce food waste and use your overripe bananas. Win-win!

15. Collard Green Spring Rolls + Sunflower Butter Dipping Sauce 

Collard green spring rolls are a vegan, plant-based twist on regular spring rolls. They’re not as crispy, but they sure are scrummy!

Handheld snacks and meals like this are fantastic. Plus, these spring rolls’ beautiful colors and flavors are super inviting. 

Just don’t skip the sunflower butter dipping sauce. The nuttiness goes so well with all of the veggies.

16. Sriracha Hemp Noodles 

Sriracha hemp noodles are one of my favorite dishes lately. They’re gluten-free, nut-free, soy-free, and sesame-free. 

But even without all that, they’re impossibly delish.

Featuring SunButter, coconut aminos, and hemp seeds, the sauce is pretty earthy.

But don’t worry, you’ll also include a sweetener (such as agave or honey) and plenty of Sriracha to brighten it up!

17. SunButter Puppy Chow 

Puppy chow is such a fun snack, and it’s terrific as a quick, kid-friendly holiday gift.

I usually use chocolate and peanut butter to make mine. But this SunButter recipe is at the top of my must-make list.

It’s just as sweet and crunchy, but this version is nut-free. That means it’s ideal for everyone!
