Sun-Tella Spread {THM-S}

Nutella.  It’s smooth, creamy, delicous.  It’s also full of sugar and totally NOT on the THM plan!  I wanted to try to make my own version that would be on plan so I decided to try sunflower seeds.   The end result was yummy.  Not exactly the same at Nutella, but  yummy none the less. I decided to go with salted sunflower seeds because I love that salty-sweet combination.  If you don’t want the salty-sweet combo, just use unsalted sunflower seeds.  **These images were taken before I started THM so ignore the bread.  : )  I would eat this on Joseph’s Lavash bread or just have a spoonful as a sweet treat.

Sun-tella Spread {THM-S}

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds
  • 4 oz. dark chocolate chips, melted
  • 10 tsp Truvia, ground fine
  • 4-6 teaspoons coconut oil

Place sunflower seeds in food processor and process until almost powdery.  (If you want a chunkier spread, don’t process quite as long).  Add enough coconut oil to form a smooth, soft paste.  Pour in the melted chocolate, pulsing until smooth.  Add ground truvia, pulsing until it forms a smooth, spreadable consistency.

Store in airtight container.  Because there is no dairy in this spread, you can leave this at room temperature for a couple of days.  If you will be storing it for more than a few days, I’d refrigerate it and let it come to room temp before using.

Makes: 1 cup
