Blackberry and Sunflower Seed Butter Sandwiches on Gluten-Free Bread

I have a new obsession with sunflower seed butter, so expect to see more recipes like this one for blackberry and sunflower seed butter sandwiches. I received some samples from Once Again Nut Butter and reviewed the brand on my blog, but this recipe for blackberry and sunflower seed butter sandwiches is NOT sponsored by the brand.

Okay, now that we’ve cleared that up, let’s talk about these tasty sandwiches. They only have 4 ingredients, and you can whip them up in just a few minutes. Well, technically there are more than 4 ingredients if you count each ingredient in the bread, granola, and sunflower seed butter. I’m only pointing that out because it irks me when I see recipes on Pinterest like “Just 2 ingredients” and one of those two is a box of cake mix or a can of soup with a lengthy list of ingredients.

But enough of my ranting. I’ll just blame it on having a case of the Mondays since that seems to be everyone else’s excuse for anything they say or do today. Besides, these blackberry and sunflower seed butter sandwiches are enough to cancel out anyone’s bad mood. Assuming you like all of the ingredients, that is.

I use gluten-free bread and gluten-free granola, but you don’t have to. You can also sub almond butter if sunflower seed butter isn’t your thing.

Start by halving or quartering your blackberries.

Grab your sunflower seed butter and a knife, spoon, or spatula.

I used the brand in the picture, but you can also make your own or buy a different brand. Whatever works best for you.

Slather the sunflower seed butter on your bread, then top it with blackberries and granola.

Take your blackberry and sunflower seed butter sandwiches outside so you can take photos in natural light and hide the clutter in your kitchen. Wait, skip that step if you’re not a food blogger.

If your sandwich isn’t sweet enough (trust me, it is), drizzle some honey on top. I guess you could also use maple syrup or powdered sugar, but both of those options sound gross to me. Not like it matters since I’m not the one eating your sandwich.

This is a perfect summertime sandwich, but it’s barely spring here. I guess it’s good any time blackberries go on sale at the grocery store. They’re currently $0.99 here after spiking to $4 or $5 during winter, so I’m psyched. I’ve been buying them like crazy.
