Sunflower seeds turning green?

Yesterday, I baked up some bread/muffin things to eat for breakfast for the rest of the week, and I put flax seeds, raisins and sunflower seeds in them to make them extra nutritious and filling. They taste fine, but I had a big surprise when I ate the first ones this morning--every sunflower seed is green around the outside and the muffin around each seed is also green. Bright green like grass! Has anybody else had this experience? They were raw sunflower seeds from the bulk bin, so should I have dry roasted them first? Clearly, the seeds are having some kind of chemical reaction with the other ingredients, but it looks really weird. I ate them 12+ hours ago and have not yet dropped dead or gotten sick, so I'm assuming they're not poisonous. ;) Anybody have any advice?
