Gluten Free Breakfast Cookie

I just learned something interesting while making this gluten free breakfast cookie – when you bake sunflower butter it turns green. Yep – I should probably be holding this recipe for St. Patrick’s Day, but I thought it was too funny to not share this with you right now.

If you’re not into green food, and don’t want green cookies, feel free to substitute peanut butter in for the sunflower butter. But in my opinion they wont be as much fun!

Notes
If using sunflower butter - be aware that it goes through a chemical reaction while cooking and turns green. There is nothing wrong with how it tastes afterwards, but if you don't enjoy green foods you could switch over to a different nut/seed butter. However it would be fun for St. Patrick's Day!
