Sunflower Seed Butter Chocolate Cups

Chocolate Cups

These sunbutter chocolate cups are packed with sunflower seed butter and sprinkled with rock salt for the perfect sweet and salty, nut free treat. About a year ago I found out about my soy, peanut and tree nut allergies and since then, I have been craving a creamy, chocolatey butter cup. Unfortunately, almost all chocolate at the grocery store contains soy! And if it doesn’t have soy, it’s usually a peanut or almond butter cup – which also doesn’t work. So you can imagine my excitement when I created these sunflower seed butter chocolate cups.

Sunflower Seed Butter

Sunflower seed butter was truly a gift sent from above. It’s creamy and nutty, just like a traditional nut butter, but actually has more nutritional value. Not only that, but it’s pretty easy to find most grocery stores and not ridiculously expensive! So if you have a peanut, tree nut or soy allergy, these are the chocolate cups for you!
