SunButter Balls Recipe – A healthy and allergen-free snack

Posted on October 20th, 2011 by Alison Read 4 Comments - Add Your Own »

These SunButter Balls are much better than Schweddy Balls ;) and they are gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, nut and peanut-free, and soy-free! The credit for this recipe goes to my sister, Leslie, who lovingly adapted it so that my daughter could eat it too. She also used healthy ingredients to give these little snacks a nutritional punch!

This is a great recipe to make with kids. They love to make the balls and roll them in the cereal! Once coated, keep them (the balls, not the kids) in the refrigerator to have as a healthy snack, to pack in lunches, or for protein on the go. The cereal on the outside, in addition to providing a little crunch, prevents them from being sticky.

  1. Yummy! I’ll have to try this recipe with my kids! I’m sure they will love rolling them up in little balls. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Jessica,
    The sunbutter Balls sound really good! There is just one thing when I click on my post as instructed nothing happens.

    Sooo…. Would you be so kind as to email me the recipe. I am eager to try them I have 5 Grandkids that just might love ‘em!
    Thanks,

  3. Dose anyone know of a good brand of sunbutter that is not shared on equipment with peanuts or treenuts? Twice I went to safeway and Raleys and all the sunbutter’s were made in a facility with peanut butter or tree nuts. My son is allergic to both peanuts and treenuts. I would love to try it with my daycare but i have one child severely allergic to peanut butter so a trace of it is just as bad. Thank you for the help. Merry Christmas!!!

  4. Alecia–”Sunbutter” is a specific brand of sunflower butter, and it is peanut and nut free. You can read about their allergy policies at sunbutter.com. There are different varieties of “Sunbutter” brand sunflower spread. Some have sweeteners added, and some don’t. I don’t have any connection to the company, but just genuinely love the product. I have celiac disease and several food allergies, and it has been a godsend for me. I never thought I’d ever be able to eat nut butters of any sort again after my allergies developed, but I’ve never had a problem with Sunbutter. Other sunflower butters have made me react, causing throat swelling, but never this brand. My favorite is the “organic.” It’s unsweetened and absolutely delicious.

    This recipe looks great–will have to try it!
