A raw take on an Easter classic
Easter is fast approaching, so we decided to take an Easter favourite and make it raw vegan. Raw hot cross buns are easy to make, delicious (obviously) and a fun take on this classic Easter food. Although chocolate is a big part of Easter, the hot cross bun is a strong contender for the most sought after Easter treat. I mean they are in every bakery and supermarket for weeks, even months before Easter.
So what’s in raw hot cross buns?
These raw hot cross buns are free from dairy, eggs, refined sugars, and they’re also gluten free. We added spices, dried fruit and an orange essential oil to really bring these raw treats to life.
We also milled our own cashews in our high powered Vitamix blender to create a cashew ‘flour’. this was super easy and only takes a few seconds to do.
This cashew cream is so versatile; it can be used as a dip for bananas and other fruit if you want a sweet treat. You can also use it for decorating biscuits, cakes, or in this case, raw hot cross buns. We had a little fun with the cashew cream and created a cinemagaph, you can check it out on our Instagram.
