Sunbutter Fudge {paleo} {gluten free} {nut free} {vegan option}

Did you know that sunflower seed butter tastes like peanut butter? Well it does. Coming from the girl who used to be peanut butter obsessed, this is quite the revelation. And best of all: it doesn’t upset my stomach. Double win.

I realize it’s Halloween in a few days and you might choose to overdose on Franken-food and sugar (if that works for you… go for it) but in case you’d like to keep things un-processed yet still delish, I’ve got you covered.

One bowl, no mess and should hit every dietary restriction out there. I know I am a little biased but I highly recommend these.

  1. Halloween has been in full swing since last Friday with my kids! It’s all too chaotic for me now and I just want to get through the parades parties and trick or treating now! This fudge looks awesome! I’ve tried something pretty similar before that came out delicious. I don’t love sunbutter on its own but it works well for desserts.

  2. Looks delish!
    Though to be honest, so does all the candy at the grocery store too. ;) Candy corn and chocolate are just so damn good!!! Keeping it in moderation though – or at least that’s my intention, HA!

    1. I’m thinking temporary! Been slowly trying to reintroduce – half a cashew Larabar here or there and been okay. It seems to be more of an oral allergy with breakouts.

  3. These sounds really yummy and they are also appropriate for my dairy free, nut free, egg free godson (so many allergies), hopefully I can make some for him in time for Friday- saving a few samples for myself, of course :)

  4. These look really good but I try to stay away from added oil. The usual goto substitute is applesauce but I’m thinking that wouldn’t work out too well in this one. Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Mitchell, not sure the reasoning behind staying away from the added oils but you can probably substitute high-quality (grass-fed) butter for it. But if you are avoiding this as well, I am not sure what to suggest! Sorry I can’t be of more help but coconut oil is wonderful, both for the added flavor and for you :)

  5. Because of your posts on how you healed your skin I bought Liz Wolfe’s Skintervention ebook (I’ve been doing lots of research on diet and skin and bought a couple other books and ebooks too) and I’m going to cut out nuts for a few weeks to see how that goes so this is going to be a perfect treat in the meantime! I have cut out so many other things and I have seen some improvements but not enough yet on my face. Fingers crossed.
