Brownies packed with sunflower seed butter cups and topped with creamy sunflower seed butter frosting and candy are something you need in your life. These little treats are simple to make and delicious to eat. These are top allergen free, gluten free, and vegan.
To make these you’ll need your choice of safe sunflower seed butter, no nut butter or nut butter. The base of these brownie bites are made with our Double Chocolate Brownie Mix and the frosting is made using our Vanilla Frosting Mix.
We chose to use the Trader’s Joe’s Sunflower Seed Butter and their Dark Chocolate Sunflower Seed Butter Cups.
