These gluten-free seedy muffins make a great breakfast or snack, are actually perfect for any time of day. We even enjoyed it as dinner with a large plate of salad. You can of course bake these healthy treats without saffron, but a little saffron goes a long way. Barberries add tanginess, fruity aroma to these muffins and pair so well with saffron and clove. Dried cranberries or cherries would make a good substitute.
