What Is Seed Butter?
Seed butter is just like nut butter, except it’s made from seeds. Seed butter can be made with sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, chia seeds, flaxseeds, and more. Sometimes, seed butter brands will add sweetener, cocoa, spices, or sea salt to enhance the flavor of the seeds.
Seed butter is made by grinding raw or roasted seeds until they become a creamy, spreadable paste. With a similar texture to nut butter, seed butter is a tasty peanut or almond butter alternative for people with nut allergies.
Seed butter has a similar nutrient profile to nut butter. It’s a great source of protein, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. It’s also generally lower in carbs than nut butter, making it a great option for those following a keto diet.
Seed butter can be used in all kinds of vegan dishes, both sweet and savory.
