Healthy Hot Cross Buns!

It isn’t Easter without sharing some warm, buttery hot cross buns. However, the hot cross buns you generally find in your supermarket are full of sugar, preservatives and other nasties that aren’t good for you or your family. Rather than scouring the shelves this Easter looking for a healthy alternative, why not whip up your own batch of hot cross buns!


We found a recipe that is sure to be a winner in your household from Well Nourished. What we love about this recipe is that it doesn’t use any yeast. An intolerance to yeast may not be as uncommon as you think. Some of the symptoms include fatigue, irritability, stomach cramps, trouble skin and indigestion. Cutting down yeast in your diet may help with some of these problems you’re experiencing and with this yummy recipe, you’re not sacrificing the treat. Plus, without any yeast, you don’t have to wait for these bad boys to rise, which means they’re ready to eat even faster!
