I follow this girl @lilsipper on Instagram …she describes herself as a “REAL Food Blogger” and she has amazing + simple recipes that always seem a little out there…mainly because they are so simple that I’m like: “There’s no way these taste good!!?!”…but then they do! She has yet to let me down. For example…a while ago she posted this “4-ingredient BREAD” that is grain free, nut free, paleo, keto friendly and all that jazz. I was intrigued…I could have bread without really having BREAD…sign me up! But y’all…I was even more intrigued by the fact that the bread turned GREEN after baking even though there’s nothing green in the ingredients…so I had to make it.
So yep…it definitely turns green…and it’s for sure good... i've already made it twice!!! I mean…if you’re used to scarfing down an amazing French baguette or something then this may not be your jam…but it really is tasty…and your gut will like it better! I should note that @lilsipper is an AWESOME resource for gut health…definitely stalk her Insta page + website if that’s an issue for you (i.e. IBS or Crohns).
I got to work this morning and realized I forgot to take picture of the green bread to show y’all…so I had my husband take some pics and send them to me. Here’s what I got…haha…
Ok. Below is @lilsipper’s recipe. And…again…be sure to check out her website for more awesome + simple recipes that are made with REAL food.
4-Ingredient Bread (paleo, keto, nut free, yeast free!)
-1 cup Organic Sunbutter
-1 Tbsp Fire Cider (I found on Amazon…but if you to save a little money…go to her page for a discount code - @lilsipper)
-1 tsp baking soda
Side note: If you don’t want to mess with getting Fire Cider (but I do recommend) then you can just use Apple Cider Vinegar and ad
-Whisk all ingredients in a stand mixer (or by hand) until well combined.
-Distribute batter into a standard bread loaf pan lined with parchment paper or lightly oiled.
-Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
-Allow to cool before slicing.
And the BIG Question: Why is it green?
The chlorogenic acid (chlorophyll) in sunflower seeds reacts with the baking soda when baked, causing the green color. This is completely harmless and I think it’s kinda cool!
