SB&J Muffins

SB&J Muffins

I made PB&J Muffins for Walker but so that he could eat them I used sunflower butter, hence the SB&J! He was a happy little baby, snarfing down his muffin quickly. I liked the flavor, it is very mellow compared to natural peanut butter. Do read the label carefully though, many sunflower butters have sugar added. I have used both Sunbutter and MaraNatha, both are good, though I prefer the more ‘earthy’ flavor of the MaraNatha. Be careful though and make sure you get the ‘natural style’ which requires stirring. The ‘no-separate’  style is never the better choice – all you need is seeds and maybe a hint of salt.
