RECIPE: Choc chip and coconut HOT CROSS BUNS! {crap free}

I am so excited to share this recipe with you! Every year I plan on creating a delicious hot cross bun recipe for you but time slips away and we end up heading down the coast to stay with family and the creative energy doesn’t flow… The inspiration for these babies came from a little bag of sugar free choc buds I found in one the goodie bags I received at the kidspot Voices of 2014 launch party I was lucky enough to attend. Before we could gobble them all up, I had to put them to use and make something delicious and with Easter approaching it had to be some HOT CROSS BUNS of course! These aren’t your typical light, fluffy and full of crap style, feel sick later hot cross buns. These are the mouth watering, chewy, must eat warm with a cup of tea type. Seriously delish and guilt free so enjoy my friends! Let me know what you think!
