Hot Cross Buns
An Easter tradition in most households, Hot Cross Buns is a tea-time favorite on Good Friday. Our low-carb recipe is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy, and tastes even better when warmed and served with lashings of butter! Why we love this LCHF Hot Cross Buns recipe, you ask? We have replaced refined flour with coconut flour, which is far lower in carbs, calories and sugars. This gluten-free flour is rich in dietary fiber that helps keep blood sugar levels stable while also aiding digestive health. Psyllium husk is an edible soluble fiber and prebiotic. It is good for digestive health and lowers cholesterol, naturally. We have replaced sugar with Erythritol, a sugar substitute that occurs naturally in fruits. It has zero bearing on blood sugar and doesn’t lead to digestive distress. Spices like cinnamon have a plethora of health benefits, like keeping blood sugar stable and reducing risk of heart disease.
