In Sweden we have a tradition of eating a bun that is called Semla once a year. Actually we have a lot of food traditions, we love celebrating different kind of foods. In february we celebrate this "Semla". It is a bun with almond paste and whipped cream. I used to love these "semlor", but after I stopped eating gluten I also stopped eating these delicate buns. This year I tried a different version of this traditional bun in a raw way and made a chia-semla. It was delicious! Try it out and let me know if you like it!
