Submitted by: JEZWYN

Introduction

My first low-carb Easter - I required a replacement for my beloved hot cross buns, and here's the best experimental result thus far! My first low-carb Easter - I required a replacement for my beloved hot cross buns, and here's the best experimental result thus far!
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    1/4 cup butter

    1/4 cup erythritol (if you use a nutritive sweetener, the carb count will increase)

    2 eggs

    1/2 cup almond flour

    1 teaspoon baking powder

    1 teaspoon vanilla extrct

    1 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions

Cream butter and sweetener well (I like to soften butter slightly in microwave first).


Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each.


Mix flour with baking powder and gradually add to egg mixture, a little at a time while beating. Add vanilla and spices. Beat well.


Spoon into well-greased mini-muffin tray, filling to 3/4 full.


Bake at 175 degrees Celsius until risen and golden brown.


Then, melt chocolate and drizzle over muffins in a cross. The chocolate will soak in a little, resulting in a well-integrated cross.


Serve hot or cooled.
