Low Carb Easter Hot Cross Bun Cookies

Posted by Jilly Mabbitt at 17:26
So, just in time for Easter this Sunday, I am giving you my recipe for low carb Hot Cross Bun Cookies!

They're REALLY yummy - flavoured with ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and orange. I do put raisins in them, but ofcourse raisins are actually full of (natural) sugars, so leave these out if you want to keep the carbs low.

Here's a video of how to make the cookies:

And here's the recipe:

120g butter

22g Splenda
1 tsp manuka honey (optional)
100g Carbalose flour
40g ground almonds
20g soya flour
1tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ginger
zest of an orange

zest of a lemon
juice of half an orange
1 egg
100g mixed raisins (optional)
1 tsp. vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350 °F/ Gas Mark 4.

First, mix together the Carbalose flour, ground almonds, soya flour and baking powder.

In a separate bowl, the butter and Splenda. Add the egg and a couple of tablespoons of the flour mixture. Then fold in the spices, raisins, vanilla, juice and zest, of the orange, and the rest of the flour Roll into balls and then press down to make cookies—making about 10 large cookies.

Bake for 15-20 minutes.

In my opinion, they taste best warm (or even toasted)—cut in half, with butter—as you would with a Hot Cross Bun. They also taste great with sugar-free jam and cream, like a scone!


For the whole batch, without raisins we have 22 carbs and 1152 calories, and with raisins we have 93 carbs and 1456 calories.  So for 10 cookies, without raisins, each one has 115.2 calories and 2.2 carbs.
