YES, you are seeing right – this paleo sunflower seed bread is green. And I didn’t use any chemicals or food coloring!
The secret behind this green sunflower seed mustard bread is that sunflower seeds contain chlorophyll, also known as chlorogenic acid. This acid reacts with the baking powder and soda in a recipe. When heated and once the product cools, it turns green.
That’s the power of nature!
This bread has not only a unique color but tastes amazing and mustard gives it a twist. I would definitely add in some mustard seeds into the bread and if you desire, you can also try adding some mustard into the dough. If you prefer eating it with sweet toppings I wouldn’t add mustard into the dough.
Whether you have your avo and egg on toast or make a nut butter jelly sandwich – because it tastes like “real” bread, you can use this paleo sunflower seed mustard bread for anything!
