A friend of mine asked me for the recipe of a Hot Cross Bun Fruit Bread I made last year…. I realised the recipe had been in the Instagram post but I’d never captured it anywhere else a little more permanent! I could have scrolled WAY back, but figured it would make more sense to jump back in the kitchen and actually write one down for her!

 

 

 

I created this loaf with a great combination of nuts, seeds and dried fruit and it’s held together with a base of buckwheat flour and psyllium husk.

It’s packed full of flavour from the classic hot cross bun spices and is super nutrient dense and has minimal added sugar.

 

 

 

 

I love to toast up a few slices for a super filling breakfast on the go, but it also served me as a wonderful snack on my night shift recently! The healthy fats from the nuts kept me going and the fruit was just the right kind of sweet to meet my cravings and stop me reaching for the chocolate and bag of mixed lollies!

Recipe Notes

This load freezes beautifully, but make sure you slice the loaf prior to freezing so you can pull out a slice at a time for the toaster.
