HOT CROSS KETO BUNS

  1. Remembering- we all have a different carbohydrate threshold- so the dried fruit in this recipe is obviously a super “with caution” food.
  2. Its Easter, live your life a little- eat zee bun!
  3. Although if you are like some of my clients- gung ho and ultimate Keto, sticking to the lifestyle 100%, then no- these are not for you.
  4. No gluten to puff them up, so dont expect a big fluffy gluten filled bun.
  5. No added sugar to spike insulin.  
  6. 100% Keto.

Makes 6 Small Buns
​Ingredients:

  • 3/4 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 Tsp Baking powder
  • Good pinch of Himalayan Salt
  • 1 heaped teaspoon Mixed Spice
  • 1 heaped teaspoon Cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ginger
  • Zest of half an Orange
  • 1/3 cup Macadamia milk- or almond milk
  • 3 Eggs
  • 50 grams of dried fruit

Adding chopped dark chocolate is optional- i tried using 40 grams of Pana “eighty” chocolate but found it too sweet, preferring to use only dried fruit which consisted of raisins and cherry’s

 

 

 

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 170 Deg Celsius
  • Grease a muffin tin with butter or coconut oil
  • Sift Almond flour, Coconut flour, Bi Carb and salt into a bowl.
  • Mix through spices and orange zest.
  • Make a well in the center and mix in milk and eggs until thoroughly combined.
  • Stir dried fruit through the mixture.
  • Divide evenly into muffin tray 
  • Bake 20 minutes- ovens vary- when buns bounce back they are done.

To cross your buns!
Beat 1 egg white until soft peaks form.  Then beat in 3/4 Tablespoon coconut flour into egg white mixture.  Spoon into a piping bag (or freezer bag).  Pipe mixture into scored crosses on the buns before baking
