Vanilla Cinnamon Sunflower Seed Butter is the unsung hero of seed butters. It's our founder's favorite and many of our team members' as well. Swirled with vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg, it tastes eerily similar to snickerdoodle cookie dough. In addition to drizzling it on yogurt, oatmeal, and ice cream, here are 6 more innovative ways to incorporate Vanilla Cinnamon into anything from baked goods to soups to smoothies.
Spiced Apple Muffins
These muffins scream fall, but no one is saying you can't make them year-round. The three fall spices in the seed butter give these muffins a boost of flavor and leaves your house smelling enviable by your neighbors. Top with some Cinnamon Maple Seed'nola for a nice crunch and even more fall flavor.
Blueberry Vanilla Smoothie
Who doesn't love a purple smoothie? Just blend together 1/4 cup Vanilla Cinnamon Sunflower Seed Butter, 1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries, 1 banana, and 1/2 cup apple juice for a fruity, fall-spiced smoothie for any time of year. As a bonus, this smoothie contains 10 grams of protein from the seed butter and more than half your daily recommended intake of fruit.
Nicole's Butternut Squash Soup
Our founder Nicole's recipe for butternut squash soup will probably be the last one you'll ever have to google. Our Vanilla Cinnamon Sunflower Seed Butter (Nicole's favorite, by the way) really amps up the pumpkin pie flavors with cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg while its creaminess acts as a dairy-replacement thickener to add protein, iron, and healthy unsaturated fats. Get your soup spoons ready!
Vanilla Spiced Peach Pops
"Get out those popsicle molds," said no one ever... until now! You might not have had a reason to buy popsicle molds and make your own at home before, but these peach popsicles are a blast to make and just can't be replicated by ones bought in a store. So, we'll say it again (for real this time) -- Get out those popsicle molds!
Since Vanilla Cinnamon Sunflower Seed Butter already tastes like snickerdoodle cookie dough, we'd be crazy not to bake it into a cookie recipe. Our easy, allergy-friendly cookie recipe can be made with any flavor of seed butter, but Vanilla Cinnamon was simply made for this. When they come out of the oven, they almost have the texture of a shortbread cookie -- crispy on the edges, chewy in the middle, and perfect for everyone.
Vanilla Spiced Date Caramel
Enjoy this sweet (but not too sweet) caramel straight out of the mason jar on a spoon, or if you have the patience to get the vanilla ice cream out of the freezer, it also makes a killer dessert topping.
