Raw balls with the taste of SAFFRON

saffransbollar utan vitt socker och gluten

Think the combination of saffron, coconut, sweet and salty with such a perfect texture - there you have our frozen saffron balls. They can also be shaped into small cute fluffy cats or flattened into fudge. They contain loads of great fats for our hormones and menstrual cycle and also only take a few minutes to make. They are also sugar-free, gluten-free and dairy-free.

Saffron balls without white sugar, gluten and milk

Besides being high in good fats, only taking minutes to make and incredibly tasty, they of course contain saffron. Did you know that some studies have shown that saffron can affect our well-being in a positive way by reducing anxiety and worry? A winning concept in our opinion. High doses of saffron (more than 5 grams/day) should be avoided during pregnancy as it can have a stimulating effect on the uterus. A package of saffron contains 0.5 grams.

Dry ingredients
2 dl cashews/sunflower seeds for nut-free
1 cup coconut flakes
1 package of saffron + approx. 1/2 tbsp water
0.25-0.5 tsp salt

Wet ingredients
5-8 fresh pitted dates (depending on sweetness)

1 tablespoon raisins (you can leave it out and take an extra date, but it tastes more like a bun with raisins)
1.5 tbsp coconut oil/ghee

Options to boost extra:
1 tablespoon of collagen
1 tsp maca powder

Do this: Mix the cashew nuts/sunflower seeds and coconut into a flour in a food processor. Heat 1/2 tbsp of water with the saffron for 30 seconds to dissolve the saffron. Core the dates, add raisins along with the rest of the ingredients and mix to a smooth batter (we use a hand mixer here). Roll into balls in coconut and into the freezer. Leave for a few hours before eating them, the taste and texture will be on a completely different level then.

If you have PCOS or problems with insulin sensitivity, you can reduce the number of dates so that it does not have as great an effect on blood sugar. It is also possible to add 1-2 tablespoons of protein powder for extra protein.

At high doses (more than 5 g/die day), it should be avoided in pregnancy owing to its uterine stimulation activity.
