Protein hot cross buns

100g almond flour (612 calories &6.9g carbs)

100g gluten free plain flour (347 calories & 80g carbs )

40g @piurasuperfoods vegan protein blend (152 calories & 1.8g carbs

32g psyllium husk powder ( 70 calories & 20g carbs )

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

2tsp cinnamon

optional: zest of 1 orange

1 tbs agave nectar (26 calories & 7g carbs)

7g sachet active dry yeast


2 eggs, large room temperature (157 calories)

2 egg whites room temperature ( 34 calories)

50g melted butter ( 250 calories & 0.4g carbs)

50g @arladairyuk skyr (31 calories & 2g carbs)

80g lukewarm water

40g diced mixed fruit (106 calories & 25g carbs )


For the Crosses

2 tbsp coconut flour

6-7 tbsp water

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

Stir the yeast and agarve nectar into luke warm water (not hot )!

Cover with a kitchen towel and leave to proof in a warm place for 5-10 minutes. It should start to bubble and thicken.

Combine the dry ingredients (almond flour, vegan protein powder, psyllium husk, baking powder, cinnamon and orange zest, in a bowl and set aside).

In a food processor or in a bowl using an electric mixer, whisk the eggs and egg whites, ( make sure they room temperature ,melted butter (make sure it's WARM and not HOT) and the proofed yeast mixture.

Now add the yoghurt and the first half of the flour mix. Blend until combined. Then add the second half of the flour mix. The dough will thicken quickly.

Now stir in the diced fruit

Line a baking tray with parchment paper (I used a round pizza pan ). Wet your hands & form 10 dough balls. Place them in your pan leaving space around each as the buns will rise.

Cover again with a kitchen towel and leave in a warm space for 50-60 minutes until the buns have significantly increased in size, then preheat the oven to 175

Mix the coconut flour, water and xanthan gum so you have a soft paste. Fill into a small ziplock bag, snip off one corner and pipe crosses over the buns.

Bake 15 mins or until the buns start to brown. Then cover loosely with aluminium foil and bake for another 10 mins
