Healthy Hot Cross Buns

BY Monica Yates

There is no need to miss out on the flavour of an epic hot cross bun flavour, or worse actually put your body through the process of trying to break down those sugar filled store bought ones! While these babies might be a little denser than the store bought versions, what they lack in fluffy-ness they make up in taste and nutrients!
