Free Recipe: 12WBT Hot Cross Buns


You’ve probably sniffed them at the bakery … or seen them glistening at the supermarket. Nothing screams “Easter!!” like a hot cross bun. The holiday weekend is fast approaching, and with it comes the delight of sweetly spiced hot cross buns. They’re tempting, but they’re high in sugar and calories. So we decided to create our own buns that are lower in calories and fat and higher in protein. But they’re just as delicious!
