Gluten free hot cross buns

Gluten free hot cross buns

Nothing beats the scent of freshly baked hot cross buns wafting from the oven at Easter. Here’s my version of home made gluten free & yeast free hot cross buns you will love.


2 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 cup rice malt syrup
3 eggs
1/2 cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground allspice
3 tablespoons cacao nibs
Finely grated zest of 1 orange


3 tablespoons coconut oil melted
2 tablespoons raw honey
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 egg white

Preheat the oven to 180C and line a 6 hole muffin tin with muffin cases.

In a large bowl, add all ingredients for the bun mixture and combine well. Form the mixture into 6 balls. Place the balls in the lined muffin cases and set aside.

For the crosses combine all the ingredients in a bowl and form a smooth paste. Transfer the mixture into a piping bag and pipe the mixture over the surface of each bun in the shape of a cross.

Bake for 25-30 minutes and let them cool on a wire rack.

Tip – Replace cacao nibs with sultanas or berries to mix things up. Enjoy xx
