Sunflower butter and jelly oatmeal is going to start off nut butter week! Oatmeal is a perfect breakfast and is a great way to start  your day. Sunflower butter is an awesome alternative for those allergic to peanuts or almonds. The addition of a homemade raspberry jam makes it even better because it skips all the added sugar. The recipe is amazing and brings bake memories of the childhood classic of peanut butter and jelly!
