Rocky team member Salina has been in the kitchen again! This time with a delicious updated take on a traditional Easter favourite. In her words:
“These little sweeties are a treat to behold for all of my gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and yeast-free friends around this time of the Spring Equinox. While they are not 'hot' buns, they are so reminiscent of the lovely warm spice flavours of the traditional hot cross buns that begin to appear on the bakery shelves at this time of year.
This recipe is simple to create with the handy help of a food processor. The coconut flour imparts a slight baked-goods texture to the 'buns' that you don't generally find with a bliss ball type of treat. Lucuma powder, made from the South American fruit, is packed with beta-carotene, iron, zinc, vitamin B3, calcium and protein and can be found in any good health food store. It gives the buns a delicious hint of butterscotch flavour, adding to the warm profile, so don't skip out on this ingredient if you can help it. I only needed one small orange for the quantity of zest and juice required for these buns.
Makes 12-14 depending on how big a baller you are!”
