A healthy chocolate sunbutter slice, with no gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts or refined sugar – but totally packed with flavor!

Healthy chocolate sunbutter slice

I’m so excited that I now have a chance to share a new healthy snack recipe with you, after my adventures with Whole30 and trying to reduce my sugar intake.  During that time, I have developed a love for sunflower seed butter, most popular brand for me is Sunbutter because they have an organic version with no added sugar.  Just sunflower seeds and nothing else.  And it is awesome with my applesauce and trail mix breakfast.  Or just with carrots and celery as a dip.  Or just with a spoon … 

This is a combination of a number of recipes that I’ve changed to make this awesome slice.  All my taste testers (a.k.a. my family) have said they love it.  Immensely.  And it’s so much healthier for you than the other chocolate sunbutter slice on this website.  But that one is sooo yummy.  I constantly get asked when I’m going to make it again by my family, friends and co-workers.  But, because it has so much sugar in it, I wanted to make a version that had no refined sugar in it.  So this recipe was born.  

Try this healthy chocolate sunbutter slice recipe.  You’ll love it.  I guarantee it!
