IMPORTANTSometimes, but not always, the natural chlorophyll contained in sunflower seeds reacts with baking soda and baking powder in the recipe, causing a green color inside the cookies after they cool. This is completely harmless! Depending on the recipe you can reduce baking soda/powder by about one third or a splash of lemon juice may help prevent any “greening”.
