Hot Cross buns (grain free) | Easter

Posted on

Hot Cross buns are made especially to celebrate Easter. Yep, Easter is not only about chocolate, you know? They are somewhat spicy and can be made using dried fruit or chocolate chips. I love them served warm with a bit of butter and jam.

In case you don’t celebrate Easter, no dramas my friend, just make them as a delicious snack and be happy!

Ingredients
  • Bun
    • ½ cup of coconut flour
    • 5 tablespoons of psyllium husk
    • ½ cup of raisins
    • 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon of ground ginger
    • 1 teaspoon of ground cloves
    • 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
    • 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon of salt
    • 2 ½ teaspoons of apple cider vinegar
    • 2 tablespoons of honey (or any sweetener you like)
    • 4 eggs
    • 7/8 cup (a little less than a full cup) of boiling water
  • Cross paste
    • 2 tablespoons of coconut flour
    • 5 tablespoons of water
    • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
Directions
  1. Cross Paste
    1. In a small bowl mix all ingredients until well combined.
    2. Pour the mixture in a plastic or piping bag and reserve. The plastic bag will help to shape the cross, but you can use a spoon instead.
  2. Bun
    1. In a large bowl combine all dry ingredients making sure to mix them well.
    2. Then, add in the eggs, vinegar, raisins and mix them until you have a thick dough.
    3. Now it’s time to add the boiling water and mix everything until nicely combined and there is a dough consistency.
    4. Split the dough into 8 small buns and place them in a baking tray covered with parchment paper.
    5. If you are not using a piping bag: get the plastic bag with the paste mixture and cut a small piece of its edge.
    6. Next, draw a cross at the top of each bun.
    7. Bake the buns in a preheated oven at 180C for 30 minutes.
    8. It’s done! They are perfect when served warm and with butter or jam.

How to make: Simple flat bread #lowcarb #glutenfree

Posted on

Missing bread for breakfast but not in the mood to bake a whole loaf? This Simple Flat Bread is perfect for you!

It’s an individual serving, very low carb and awesome for sandwiches or simply to have with some butter in the morning. I normally make it as a quick breakfast option, but you can also use it to create beautiful sandwiches to have along the day.

Ingredients
  • 2 small eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of almond flour (or 1 tablespoon of coconut flour)
  • 1 tablespoon of grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of pure cream (or unsweetened yogurt)
  • ½ teaspoon of baking soda
  • Salt to taste
Directions
  1. Whisk all ingredients together and set it aside.
  2. Put a fry pan to warm up at low heat. If you don’t have a non-stick fry pan, I suggest you to grease it a little with coconut oil.
  3. Pour the mixture and let it cook until the bottom part gets brown. Flip to the other side and repeat the process. It’s the same idea of making pancakes!
  4. It’s ready! This recipe gives you one flat bread. You can have it with anything you like. Cut it in half in order to make a beautiful sandwich.
