Just look at these muffins. Can you believe I didn’t dye them green? And they don’t contain Kale, LOL. Yep. That’s what happens when you bake Sunflower Seed Butter. But don’t worry if they aren’t green when they come out the oven. The lovely green color appears after they have cooled.

Sunflower Seeds contain Chlorophyll, also known as Chlorogenic acid. This reacts with the Baking Soda/Powder and creates the green hue. But that’s a good thing! Chlorophyll is a known for anti-aging, immune boosting and promoting digestive health. You can read more about the amazing benefits of Chlorophyll here.

My entire aim in this recipe was to create a muffin that would be green for St. Patrick’s Day.  And making them allergy-free ensures I can bring them to school. They’re perfect for a class party!

Being part Irish, I just love St. Patrick’s Day. This cute little McGregor Leprechaun has been in my family for years. In case you didn’t know, my maiden name is McGregor;)
