Sugar Free and Low Carb Saffron Buns Filled with Almond Paste
  1. 4 eggs + 1 yoke (save egg white to brush buns before oven)
  2. 2 tbsp + 0,75 tbsp liquid honey
  3. 50 g (1,8 oz) butter
  4. 1,5 dl (0,63 cups) curd
  5. 1 dl (0,42 cups) coconut powder (Aman Prana)
  6. 3 tbsp psyllium husk
  7. 2 tsp baking soda
  8. 1 g (0,035 oz) grounded saffron
  9. 6 tbsp cream
  10. 2 dl (0,84 cups) almond powder
  1. Use an electric blender to whisk the eggs and honey, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add saffron, curd and melted butter. Whisk one more time.
  3. Add baking soda + a tiny pinch of salt, coconut powder and psyllium husk and whisk again. Let it sit for a couple of minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, mix almond powder, honey (0,75 tbsp) and cream into a paste, let sit for a while.
  5. While almond paste is resting you divide your saffron dough into two even pieces. Put one piece onto a plastic foil sheet, add another sheet on top of the dough, start rolling with a rolling pin until you have an evenly flat square (like when making cinnamon buns).
  6. Add an even layer of almond paste onto the saffron dough square.
  7. Remove upper foil sheet and then start rolling the dough into a long piece of dough using the foil sheet underneath as help.
  8. Use a knife to divide into 2 cm pieces and put in baking cups.
  9. Mix an egg and brush it lovingly (not too much) at the buns, then sprinkle with almond flakes on the top.
  10. Bake 20-25 minutes in preheated oven 170 C (338 F) hot air. If you don't have hot air add about 25 C (77 F) to the number.
  11. Let cool a couple of hours before eating, they're at their best when they've gotten cold!
