One of the best things with Christmas, saffron? It can be used in so many different ways, in baking, food recipes, desserts, breakfasts, bread and more! Here is one of my favorites:
Saffron Chia-Pudding (1 portion)
-> Put all the ingredients except the zucchini in a jar with a lid. Stir well until all the chia-seeds are covered. Put in the fridge over night, or at least for 2-3 hours. Tak out in the morning and add the shredded zucchini (also squeeze out the water). If you prefer a warm breakfast you can heat it up on the stove real quick or in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. Add your desired toppings.
My favorite toppings for this chia-pudding is oranges, Sharon fruit, nutbutter, gojiberries, blueberries and mulberries.
This chia-pudding is paleo-friendly, which also means free from gluten, dairy and added sugar.

Had to try this Christmas inspired recipe for nut butter. Almond butter with gingerbread flavor, how good doesn’t that sound? And YES it ended up delicious!
Gingerbread Almond Butter (1 jar)
- 350g natural almonds
- 2 tablespoons gingerbread spice
- 3 tablespoons water
-> Start with boiling up a pot of water and add the almonds for 1-2 minutes. Pour out the water and take the peel off the almonds. Turn the oven on 200 degrees Celsius. Spread out the almonds on baking paper on a baking tray. Roast them in the oven for about 12 minutes. Take out and let cool down. Add the almonds, the gingerbread spice and the water to a mixer and mix until it becomes a dough. For me it took probably more than 7-8 minutes. Had to stop mixing a few times to take some dough off the edges of the mixer to continue. When it is done and looks like a dough/butter, pour it over to a jar with a lid. I keep mine in the fridge to be sure it stays fresh!
This almond butter is the perfect topping on bread, crackers, oatmeal, to eat with sliced fruit, to add to desserts or just eat as it is! DELICIOUS!
It is also 100% paleo-friendly, which also means free from gluten, dairy and added sugar.
Another delicious recipe for raw balls. The perfect snack, dessert, treat or why not do like me to add it as toppings on oatmeal, smoothies, yoghurt or pancakes. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
Hemp/Maca Chocolate Raw Balls (about 8 medium-sized)
-> Put everything in a mixer and mix until it becomes a dough. Roll into 8 medium-sized balls. Then roll in some of the Power mixture Superfood365. Put in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes before eating. ENJOY!
These raw balls are 100% paleo-friendly, gluten free, dairy free and free from added sugar.
In Sweden we have something called “sticky” chocolate cake, it is supposed to be everything else than dry! I made this healthy alternative with a touch of Christmas adding gingerbread spice.
Chocolate-Gingerbread Spice Cake (1 cake)
- 2 dl almond flour
- 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
- 10 pitted dates
- 1 dl coconut flakes
- 2 teaspoons gingerbread spice
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon raw honey
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla powder
- a sprinkle of sea salt
-> Turn the oven on 175 degrees Celsius. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl with a stick-blender until smooth. Cover a baking-dish with coconut oil and pour over the dough. Put in the middle of the oven for 10-12 minutes. I had mine in the oven for 11 minutes but will cut that by a minute next time to let it be a little more sticky/creamy! Serve the chocolate cake with berries (lingon-berries) and whipped coconut cream!
This chocolate cake is 100% free from gluten, dairy and added sugar!
Another easy and quick recipe for a healthy and tasty bread. You can easily add some spices of your choice (for example, cinnamon, gingerbread spice, cardamom, vanilla powder…) to mix up the recipe from time to time.

It’s time to start the Christmas baking, which I love! This is the first ever healthy fudge recipe I have tried and experimented with. Finally it became successful! Easy and quick to make with not too many ingredients.
Chocolate Coconut Fudge (1 batch)
-> Start by mixing the almonds in a mixer until it becomes a flour. Then add the salt and coconut oil. Mix until smooth. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until it becomes a dough. Flatten out on a tray covered with baking paper and place in the fridge until it is hard. Take out and cut in pieces. If you’d like you can melt some dark chocolate as a top layer for a more luxury taste.
