Sunflower Almond Butter

When I was in high school I kept a jar of peanut butter in my dashboard.  This was for two reasons:  1)  I’m mean if I’m hungry, and 2) I have a nut butter habit.  This week, the nut butter habit manifests itself in the form of pulverized sunflower seeds and almonds.  Sunflower seeds have a grassy flavor which I like but wanted to cut with the milkiness of almonds.  Dynamite combination! -Amanda
