  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup of Natvia
  • 6 eggs
  • 250 grams grass fed butter melted (or ghee or coconut oil)
  • 2 apples peeled and grated (we used granny smiths)

  • 3 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • for the crosses
  • 1 tbs. coconut flour
  • water
    • Step 1: The Bun

      1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius.
      2. Line twelve muffin tins with large muffin cases.
      3. In a large bowl, mix the almond meal, coconut flour, Natvia, nutmeg, cinnamon and baking powder in a bowl.
      4. Add the butter and eggs and mix well.
      5. Now add the apple and sultanas. Mix again until it forms a dough.
      6. Once the mixture is all combined, roll into twelve even balls.
      7. Place them into the muffin cases and press down a little.
        • Step 2: The Cross

          1. Place 1 tbs. coconut flour in a small bowl.
          2. Gradually add drops of water while stirring, until a thick white paste forms. Use a fork to make sure there are no lumps.
          3. Put the paste into a piping bag, and pipe a cross on to the top of each bun.
          4. Now place the buns into the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
        • Serve without the muffin cases (so they look more bun-like). Warmed with a mug of coffee is heaven

The Merrymaker Sister recommend cranberries and apricots for a less traditional bun.
