Hot Cross Bun Cookies

I decided to get creative this afternoon and bake an Easter inspired treat for the long weekend. I looooove hot cross buns but sometimes they are a little bit too heavy on my stomach! So I thought I would come up with a lighter version that tastes similar, but still gets me in the mood to celebrate Easter! If you want to bake something fun and easy this weekend, give these a go! #bakingwithge

You will need:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted & cooled
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sultanas
  • Coconut flour & water to make the crosses
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees
  • Beat egg, add coconut oil, coconut sugar, cinnamon & nutmeg
  • Add almond meal, coconut flour & baking powder, mix to form a dough
  • Fold in sultanas
  • Use a tablespoon to scoop out balls of mixture onto a baking tray, carefully flatten out with your fingers
  • In a small bowl, mix together some coconut flour and water to create a paste. Put the paste into a zip lock bag and snip the corner. Squeeze out paste to make crosses on each cookie. My crosses weren’t amazing but at least I had a go!
  • Bake cookies in preheated oven for 12 mins
