Nutbutter and Jelly Coffee Cake

I have a confession to make…we buy peanut butter. Yes, I know it’s not Paleo. I never said we were 100% Paleo, so hopefully the Paleo police won’t arrest me. :) We follow closer to the 80/20 rule, to allow a little flexibility like natural peanut butter. I would rather our whole family eat just almond butter or sunflower seed butter, but almond butter is around $10 a jar and our local grocery store and online has been out of Maranatha sunflower seed butter for months! My kids and husband (and I on occasion) seriously can eat up to three jars of natural peanut butter a week! I can’t justify $30 a week for almond butter. No judging here please. :) Like I said, I haven’t been able to find sunflower seed butter for months, so I had to make my own for this recipe. Do you follow Paleo 100% of the time or do you have some other foods that you add in? I find that peanut butter doesn’t affect me negatively like other legumes, so I enjoy it in moderation. I usually try to avoid it because once I have a little I want more and more! But that’s also true with the sunflower and almond butter. That being said, I love sunflower butter the most. What is your favorite nutbutter? Do you eat any peanut butter? I stumbled upon this classification of Paleo which I thought was interesting. Where do you think you fall?
