Healthier Hot Cross Buns are a bit like the Easter Bunny himself; elusive and potentially fictional. They’re usually better suited to breaking windows.
These Hot Cross Buns are Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Processed Sugar Free and
Paleo… aka Awesome.
They are not hard to make but are time consuming due to the rising times required. I have used yeast in this recipe as you would in a traditional recipe, but without the gluten the yeast doesn’t rise like you would expect. The yeast does play another role in this recipe and that is to create the texture you would expect from a Hot Cross Bun. I tried this recipe yeast-less and the buns turned out more like a scone than a bun. Keep the yeast, kneads a little and eat!
