Bun Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons Truvia
  • Sprinkle of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup organic greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tablespoon egg-whites
  • +1 tablespoon flour

Cinnamon Filling Ingredients:

  • 1/2 teaspoon Kerrygold butter (melted)
  • Sprinkle of Truvia
  • 1 teaspoon organic brown sugar (or brown sugar Truvia)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Almond Glaze Ingredients:
  • 1/2 tablespoon almonds
  • 1 tablespoon Organic powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Splash of vanilla extract

 

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, mix together all dry ingredients for the “Bun” only, excluding the additional tablespoon of flour for dusting.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together all wet ingredients for the “Bun” only.
  • Once your liquids have been mixed well, add them to your dry ingredients and mix until combined. Your batter should be pretty thick, forming a cohesive mound.
  • Lightly sprinkle a clean, flat surface (such as your countertop) with flour. Take your dough, rolled into a ball, and place on floured surface. Roll out with a rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick.
  • In a small bowl, mix together all ingredients for your cinnamon-filling excluding Kerrygold (or butter).
  • Brush your dough with ghee, and follow by sprinkling with cinnamon-mixture.
  • Roll up your dough like you are rolling up a stick of wrapping paper. Once rolled, place it on a sheet of parchment paper or non-stick foil, shaped in a “U.”
  • Pop in the oven and bake for approximately 12 – 15 minutes, or until your almond bun is barely browned on the edges and golden in the middle. You may also pierce with a toothpick to make sure it has fully cooked! If you find wet batter on your toothpick, continue baking until the same test does not remove wet batter.
  • While your bun is baking, mix together ingredients for almond glaze. You can choose to include sliced almonds, or you can leave almonds out and sprinkle on at the end.
  • Remove bun and brush with almond glaze. Add almonds.
