Hmm. Why not?

I recall using sunflower seeds too.

I like making pesto with either Swiss Chard or lightly blanched kale, basil, EVOO, nuts, garlic, cheese. I've made pesto with parsley and basil as well as coriander and basil as well.

If I really wanted to sub pine nuts I would likely go for the sweet taste of macadamia nuts.

I've made some really great pesto with walnuts and sometimes add walnut oil.
I would have no fear putting in a dollop of peanut butter since I know in my kitchen I'm the boss.
