I had some leftover pumpkin seed butter in the fridge and wanted to make something with it. I had made a big jar of it after seeing that Ceres now had it in their 'butter' range and it worked really well, but the kids were not huge fans of it. Considering I had primarily made it as an alternative to using nut based spreads in their sandwiches as I do with sunflower butter for their Montessori lunches, it was not much use having a big jar of it if they weren't going to eat it! However, I will now be making more of it because after this monumental discovery of nut free peanut butter, I am going to be using a lot of it I'm sure!!!
This snack is an ideal afternoon pick-me-up and perfect for anyone with nut allergies. It is also ideal for lunchbox snacks for kids (or grown-ups) that have restrictions on using nut-based foods.
The very best thing about this though, is that it only contains 3 ingredients, and can be made in about 3 minutes. Those are the best kind of snacks!
