Happy Easter everyone! Hope you’ve all enjoyed a relaxing weekend so far in Iso 😉
We’ve been doing lots of Easter cooking over here in the Bellette Residency. Here’s a yummy healthy variation of the Hot Cross Bun!
2 cups almond meal
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup 100% maple syrup or raw honey
250 grams coconut oil (or ghee or butter)
2 apples peeled and grated
3/4 cup of unsweetened sultanas (or raisins, be sure to check for nasties!).
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp cinnamon
apple (for the crosses)
1 Preheat your oven to 180°C.
2 Line 12 muffin tins with large muffin cases.
3 In a large bowl, mix the almond meal, coconut flour, nutmeg and cinnamon in a bowl.
4 Add the maple syrup, butter and eggs and mix well.
5 Now add the apple and sultanas. Mix again until it forms a dough.
6 Once the mixture is all combined, roll in to 12 even balls.
7 Place them in to the muffin cases and press down a little.
8. Slice apple into thin strips and place on top of muffins to make crosses.
9. Bake in over for 20-30min, or until golden brown and cooked through.
