This naturally green St. Patrick’s Day bread is yeast-free, gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, dairy-free, paleo and keto friendly. It’s made with four ingredients: sunflower seeds, eggs, baking soda and vinegar. And what’s best, the St. Patrick’s Day bread is naturally green! The sunflower seeds + baking soda turn the bread green when it cools down.
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 3 eggs
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp vinegar
Preheat the oven to 160°C/ 320°F. Grease a loaf pan.
Blend the sunflower seeds in a food processor until smooth. Then mix all ingredients together with a mixer. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a wooden skewer comes out clean.
The bread is brown when it comes out of the oven, but it turns dark green when it cools down.
