HOT CROSS BUNS (Gluten & Dairy Free)

INGREDIENTS

BUNS:
2 cups wholemeal spelt flour (or to make this Gluten Free - try mixing equal amounts of buckwheat, rice and tapioca flour) 
½ tbsp bakers dried yeast
1 tsp coconut sugar (or other sweetener) 
½ cup almond milk 
½ tsp salt 
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp vanilla powder
1 tbsp chia seeds + ¼ cup warm water (or 1 organic egg for the non vegan option)
4 medjool dates
3 tbsp olive oil 
½ cup mixed dried fruit (sultana’s, cranberries, currants) 

CROSSES:
¼ cup GF flour 
1-2 tbsp water (or until it is like a paste) 

GLAZE:
½ tbsp coconut sugar (or other sweetener)
½ tbsp water
    

METHOD:
1. Warm the almond milk to luke warm (not boiling), add the yeast, and coconut sugar, stir, cover and place in a warm place for 15 minutes (or until it is bubbly) 
2. Sieve into a large mixing bowl the spices (cinnamon, mixed spice, vanilla), salt and flour. 
3. Blend the dates (pitted), water, chia seeds and olive oil together then pour into the bubbly milk-yeast mixture, stir then pour into the mixing bowl with the flours. 
4. Add the dried fruit to the bowl and combine to form a dough. Cover and place in a warm spot for approximately 45 minutes or until the dough has roughly doubled in size. 
5. Turn oven onto 180 degrees fan forced
6. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and punch out the air, kneed dough and then cut into 8 equal sized pieces.

8. Mix the flour and water together in a bowl and pour into a piping bag (or a snap and seal bag with the corner cut off), set aside.
9. Using the back of a knife, trace a + down the buns then pipe the mixing down the lines.
