We don’t know about you, but we can’t go without a hot cross bun (or five) when Easter rolls around. But this year, instead of turning to bakeries, grocery stores and supermarkets for your fix, why not whip up a batch of Jessica Sepel’s healthy-ish hot cross buns? They’re made with almond meal, coconut flour and a few other good-for-you ingredients like cinnamon and dark chocolate, so you can indulge guilt-free. Serve them with coconut butter, or if you’re a true chocoholic, with an organic chocolate hazelnut spread.
Easter is a season filled with yummy family meals and treats! In fact, the holiday is practically dedicated to baskets filled with chocolatey, sugary indulgences. If you are health conscious, there’s no need to deprive yourself during this time. Enjoy these divine hot cross buns instead. They’re gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free with a hint of spice and zesty citrus. Plus, they’ve got the most amazing dark chocolate finishing touch—enjoy! says Jessica Sepel.
