Paleo Honey Buns! (Gluten/Grain/Dairy/Nut Free)
Dear Little Debbie, Your little packaged goods are awful. I mean..delicious yes. Actually probably not even that delicious..but yet somehow we are all fixated on them. Anyways..It makes me a little upset thinking about little kids being handed your little bags of crap on a regular basis. So I'm going to recreate EVERY SINGLE ONE of your recipes in a MUCH healthier way that works for those of us with allergies/ food intolerances.. since I know you won't ever bother.
So hey, you guys. THESE Honey Buns right here are pretty stinking unreal. They have REAL honey in them, and oh my are they soft, fluffy and caky. I had a blast coming up with the recipe.
Best part of all- this recipe is SO simple. So so so simple. Anyone can make them! Send one of these little darlings in your kids lunch box. They will go bananas.
Yield: 4 honey buns
· 3/4 Packed Cups of Coconut Flour
· 1/2 Cup Potato Starch
· 1/3 Cup Tapioca Starch
· 1/2 Tsp. Salt
· 1 Tsp. Xanthan or Guar Gum
· 2 Tsp. Baking Powder
· 1/2 Cup of Granulated Sugar (organic cane or coconut palm recommended)
· 1/2 Cup Shortening (I used Spectrum Organic)
· 2 Large Eggs
· 4 TBSP Honey
· 1/2 cup of powdered sugar (see note below to make your own)
· 1 TBSP water
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
2. In the bowl of a stand mixer combine all the dry ingredients for the honey buns.
3. Then mix in the wet ingredients until you have a dough that holds together well and is slightly sticky.
4. Diving dough into equal sized pieces. Roll out in a snake shape. And them roll into the shape of a honey bun. (ps. If your dough sticks to your counter during this process- put a little oil on your hands and or the counter top to prevent any issues)
5. Place the 4 honey buns on your prepared baking sheet- and bake 18-19 minutes until lightly golden.
6. While baking whisk together your glaze.
7. Remove honey buns from oven and brush them with the glaze while still warm.
