"HOT CROSS BALLS"
Refined sugar free Hot Cross Buns with extra fibre
We all thought it was outrageous when the Big Chains started replacing the Christmas pudding with Hot Cross Buns (HXB) in January. But secretly, we rejoiced that we could enjoy these doughy delights earlier than expected. Two months (and many buttered buns) later, we're guessing you're in need for a healthy alternative! Well we've got you covered.
On 1st March, we're launching our new limited edition "Hot Cross Bun" flavour for one month.
These spicy, spongy protein bareballs taste like the real deal but without the refined sugar, carbs and gluttonous feeling! This pre-blended "instant" mix is 100% natural and fruitless, which means all you need to do is add your water, coconut oil and any dried fruit that tickles your fancy (or cacao nibs) (pictured below). Each mix is made up of Australian almonds, psyllium husk*, organic pea and brown rice protein, organic black chia seeds, cinnamon and a generous portion of the good ol' mixed spices.
Want to impress your friends and family? Add "cross" decorations to top off your HXB bareballs (see recipe below).

HXB Cross Decoration
TRADITIONAL: 1 cup soft icing mixture, 2 tbsp water
ALTERNATIVE: 1/2 cup coconut yoghurt, 1 tbsp water
- Mix all ingredients together until smooth, adding a touch of water to get desired consistency (remember the more water you add the thinner the icing will get).
- Using a piping bag (or a ziplock bag with a small hole cut in the corner), pipe lines across the bareballs.
- Freeze bareballs until firm then indulge!
