As we all know its Easter time! A big happy easter to everyone reading, may they be filled with love and joy.
In light of the easter spirit we have conjured up a recipe for secular hot cross buns!


  1. 300g almond meal
  2. 1 tsp baking soda
  3. 1/4 cup coconut oil
  4. 3 tbsp honey
  5. 1 vanilla bean
  6. 2 eggs
  7. 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  8. 1/4 cup sultanas
  9. 1/4 cup of peel
  10. Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees celsius
  2. Put the eggs and honey in the mixer on high for 3 minutes
  3. Put the mixer on low and add in everything else until combined into a dough-like mixture
  4. Roll into about 8 balls and place on a lined baking tray
  5. Brush lightly with beaten eggs to give a golden colour
  6. Bake in oven for 20-30 minutes 
  7. Take out when golden brown and enjoy!

If you would like to add crosses:    

Place 1 tbs. coconut flour in a small bowl.
Gradually add drops of water while stirring, until a thick white paste forms. Use a fork to make sure there are no lumps.
Put the paste into a piping bag, and pipe a cross on to the top of each bun.

We hope you’ll love this recipe as much as we did!
