Paleo Hot Cross 'Buns' with Turmeric & Ginger

Does anyone else drool when they see fresh hot crossed buns? I do I do I do! Luckily (for me at least!) the web has some incredible healthy recipe options to choose from ! This one is inspired by Sarah Wilson's recipe. I think it's a great recipe and very simple to follow (I hate following recipes, so I like it when I find one that's simple/fool proof -- and gets the creative juices going in the kitchen without too much error!). Enjoy! xo


  • 2 cups almond meal
  • 1 cup arrowroot flour
  • 1 cup of organic currents
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon 
  • 2 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • pinch black pepper
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten.
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted.
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons rice malt syrup [optional] -- I used 1 tbsp + 2 drops stevia
  • juice of half a lemon plus zest


  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup desiccated coconut


  • Preheat oven to 180ºC / 350ºF and line baking tray with baking paper
  • Mix all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl. 
  • In a separate bowl combine eggs, with vanilla, melted coconut oil and rice malt (or sweetener of choice)
  • Combine mixtures and mix well! Roll out into mini buns -- makes about 12! 
  • To make crosses (and this bit was the hardest honestly!)
  • whisk egg whites and desiccated coconut. Drizzle over unbaked 'buns' in a cross shape with a teaspoon and your fingers if that's easiest! (again... this step wasn't easy for me!)
  • Bake for around 20 minutes.
  • Happy Noshing XO
