My cookies turned green?

When substituting SunButter in your existing recipe, you may have to reduce the baking soda/powder by approx. 1/3 to start.  The chlorogenic acid (chlorophyll) in sunflower seeds react with the baking soda/powder when baked causing the green color when the product cools down.  Depending on the recipe, even a splash of lemon juice could help.
