Raw (Dehydrated) Saffron Lucia Buns

12-14 pieces
1 +1/2 dl raw almonds
1 dl sprouted raw sunflower seeds
1/2 dl sprouted raw rolled oats
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut sugar
1 tablespoon psyllium powder + 3 tablespoons water
0.2 g saffron + 1 teaspoon water + 1 teaspoon sesame oil
Garnish: Dried raisins


  1. Stir the saffron in 1 teaspoon water and 1 teaspoon sesame oil in a small bowl. Set aside.
  2. Mix water and psyllium.
  3. Beat nuts and seeds into flour in a food processor or blendtec.
  4. Pour in the rest of the ingredients and continue to run until the batter forms a ball.
  5. Divide the dough into 12 pieces and roll out gently into saffron bun shape or balls.
  6. Poke down raisins.
  7. Dehydrate in the excalibur food dehydrator at 42 ° C for 12-14 hours until completely dried.
    Tip: The aroma of saffron dissolves best in oil and its color best in water, so I used both to stir out the small straws.

    Glad Lucia!

Natten går tunga fjät
Night walks with a heavy step
rund gård och stuva;
Round yard and hearth,
kring jord, som sol förlät,
As the sun departs from earth,
skuggorna ruva.
Shadows are brooding.
Då i vårt mörka hus,
There in our dark house,
stiger med tända ljus,
Walking with lit candles,
Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia.
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!

Natten går stor och stum
Night walks grand, yet silent,
nu hörs dess vingar
Now hear its gentle wings,
i alla tysta rum
In every room so hushed,
sus som av vingar.
Whispering like wings.
Se, på vår tröskel står
Look, at our threshold stands,
vitklädd med ljus i hår
White-clad with light in her hair,
Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia.
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia! 

Mörkret ska flykta snart
Darkness shall take flight soon
ur jordens dalar
From earth’s valleys.
så hon ett underbart
So she speaks
ord till oss talar.
Wonderful words to us:
Dagen ska åter ny
A new day will rise again
stiga ur rosig sky
From the rosy sky…
Sankta Lucia, Sankta Lucia.
Santa Lucia, Santa Lucia!
