Healthy Hot Cross Buns



4-5 cups gluten free flour (depending on how much you knead dough)
1 active sachet of gluten free bakers yeast*
2 tablespoons rice malt syrup
1 cup warmed nut milk of choice (or hemp)
5 medjool dates, (diced & soaked in warm water for 5 mins)
Pinch Himalayan sea salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon cardamom
Pinch of ground clove
1 teaspoon natvia
1 egg 
¼ cup coconut oil


½ cup rice flour
2-3 tablespoon water

Chocolate Filling

4 Triple Choc Beauty Bites chopped up (or choc chips)


1 tablespoon rice malt syrup
¼ cup water


  1. On the stove, warm the milk to a tepid temperature (you should be able to put your finger in the water and for it to be a similar temperature)
  2. Remove from the stove and tear in the yeast sachet, and drizzle in rice malt syrup and stir and leave to bubble for at least 10 mins
  3. While this is bubbling away, pour ¼-1/2  cup boiling water over your chopped Medjool dates and let them steep. Pop them in a blender so you almost get a nice chunk of date in every bite.
  4. In a large bowl, sieve all of the dry ingredients and then add the yeast milk & date bits slowly. Add in melted coconut oil and egg. Knead until a dough consistency forms (add a little more water or flour if needed)
  5. Leave in a clean bowl with a tea towel over it for 30-40 mins.

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius & grease a baking tray with coconut oil

  1. Dust a clean surface with rice flour or GF flour
  2. Roll out
  3. Scatter the chopped Triple Choc Chip Beauty Bites
  4. Then portion into 6-10 buns
  5. Shape them and pop them closely together in the baking tray
  6. Cover again with a tea towel and leave for 10 more mins
  7. To make the crosses mix the flour and water in a bowl until a paste is formed then pop into a piping bag
  8. With the tip of a teaspoon handle, run along the buns and create cross rivets for the piping to go into
  9. Bake in oven for 20-25 minutes until nice and golden (you may need to leave them in for a little bit longer, depending on how much flour you have used.
  10. Glaze immediately and leave in baking tray for 5-10 minutes
  11. Serve warm with butter
