SunButter Ice Cream and Cookies


So I am not vegan or vegetarian I do love to challenge myself to explore  all kinds of cooking styles and methods. For the SunButter Fan Favorite Recipe Book Contest I decided to try to come up with some tasty gluten-free vegan recipes.


I am thinking who doesn’t like cookies and ice cream. I love peanut butter so I thought SunButter would make a great alternative.

“SunButter Natural is a delicious all natural peanut butter substitute. Packed with vitamin E and fiber, SunButter Natural provides nutritional punch and safe, great-tasting fuel for your family’s lifestyle”. (SunButter)
