2 tsp. nutmeg
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking powder

for the crosses:

1 tbs. coconut flour
water

What to do:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius.

  8. For the Crosses: place 1 tbs. coconut flour in a small bowl.
  9. Gradually add drops of water while stirring, until a thick white paste forms. Use a fork to make sure there are no lumps.
  10. Put the paste into a piping bag, and pipe a cross on to the top of each bun.
  11. Now place the buns into the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  12. Serve without the muffin cases (so they look more bun-like), warmed and with more butter. Yum

Raw Vegan Caramel Creme Eggs

What you need:

Gooey Caramel Cream
1 1/2 cups cashews
1 tsp vanilla extract 3 tbl rice malt syrup
2 tbl coconut oil, warmed to liquefy
1/2 cup water
Pinch Celctic sea salt or Pink Himalayan Salt
Chocolate
1/2 cup cacao butter2 tbl carob powder1 tbl cacao powder1 tbl lucuma (omit this if you don’t have it)
1 tbl rice malt syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

What to do:

  1. Make the caramel cream first by combining all ingredients in a high-speed blender until smooth. The smoothness of the mixture will depend on the strength of your machine.
  2. Then make the chocolate by combining all ingredients in a food processor or simply stir in a bowl with a whisk or fork ensuring any lumps are broken down until smooth.
  3. Pour the chocolate into each egg mould so half is filled. Then spoon some caramel cream into the mould – be careful not to add too much as you want it to be encased in chocolate. Then pour over some more chocolate so there is no trace of the filling. Set in the fridge or freezer to set.

Note: We used half egg moulds but you could do this with any large mould or sturdy cupcake case.
