Easter Buckwheat Galette & Cinnamon Apples CLEAN SUPPER CLUB
This Easter weekend we thought you might all enjoy a delightfully spiced buckwheat galette with soft warm cinnamon apples? We've eaten this recipe for breakfast, lunch and as a dessert!
Serves 4 large or 8-10 small
Preparation Time 15 -20 minutes
Equipment Food processor 25 cm Frying pan Spatula
Ingredients For the Galette 220g of Buckwheat Flour 2 Eggs ½ tsp of cinnamon powder pinch of pink Himalayan Salt 550ml of unsweetened Almond Milk
Mix all the ingredients together in the food processor for 2 minutes until completely combined.
Wipe the frying pan with coconut oil, put on a high heat, once hot reduce to medium temperature.
Ladle mix into frying pan, spread so evenly covers the base of the pan.
Cook for 2 minutes until small bubbles start to appear on the surface, then flip (we like to use a spatula for this) and cook for a further 2 minutes.
Repeat the process.
4 medium apples, quarter, core and thinly sliced.
Gently melt 1 tsp. of coconut oil in another frying pan or a heavy based pan.
Add 2 tsp. of coconut palm sugar & 1 tsp. of cinnamon powder. Stir until the sugar dissolves.
Add the apple slices and cook on a medium heat until they are soft, stir occasionally so they don’t stick together.
To Serve Tip Galette onto a plate; fill the centre with apple mix fold & serve. We like to drizzle a little grade A maple syrup over the top.
Storage Galette batter can be stored in a sealed container for 24 hours.
HOT CROSS BUNS Clean Supper Club
So you've tucked into a super healthy, delicious and filling breakfast and you're wondering what to have for 11's or mid afternoon nibbles? Would it be Easter without a Hot Cross Bun?
They are beautifully spiced, filled with fruit and made with a Spelt & Buckwheat flour mix. We've used coconut oil to replace butter & sweetened them with coconut palm sugar instead of white sugar.
Our Clean Supper Club Hot Cross Buns will not break your healthy-living enabling you to enjoy them for Easter and whenever feel.
Serves Makes 12
Preparation time Prep 4 hours Bake for 15 minutes
Equipment Large mixing bowl or food mixer with a dough hook Cling film Baking paper Baking tray Scales Saucepans Piping bag Wire cooling rack
Storage Airtight container In a cool dry place
300g of Spelt Flour 200g of Buckwheat Flour 50g of Coconut palm sugar 8g of dried yeast 8g of Himalayan pink salt 70g of coconut oil 120ml of unsweetened almond milk Zest of 2 oranges Zest of 1 un-waxed lemon 120ml of cool water 2 tsp. ofcinnamon powder 2 large Eggs ½ tsp. of freshly ground nutmeg 100g of Sultanas 70g of dried cranberries
For the crosses 4 Tbsp. Buckwheat flour 3 Tbsp. of cold Water
Weigh out fruit dried fruit, place in a bowl, cover in water and soak for a minimum of 3 hours.
Gently warm almond milk with lemon and orange zest in saucepan.
Gently melt coconut oil in a separate saucepan
In a mixing bowl put the flours, salt, yeast, coconut sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add eggs.
Stir together with wooden spoon or with food mixer, using the dough hook and on the lowest setting. Pour in almond milk with the zest and the coconut oil then gradually add water. Mix until fully blended together. The mix may look slightly wet.
Flour the worktop with buckwheat and tip out the dough. Knead for a few minutes until the mix becomes smooth & forms a rough ball shape.
Using the coconut oil lightly grease a large mixing bowl, place the dough into the centre and cover with cling film. Leave to rise for at least an hour (up to 2 would be fine), until it has nearly doubled in size
After the first rise, flour the work-surface and knead all the dried fruit into the dough. Round the dough into a smooth ball.
Return to the bowl, recover and leave to prove for another 1 hour.
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, knead for 2 minutes and then roll into a long loaf shape. Divide into 12 equal sized slices. Cut and roll each slice into a ball.
Place the dough balls 3cm apart on the baking tray, ensure you poke any dried fruit that is sat on the surface of the bun into the dough. Then place in a clean plastic bag, tie end with elastic band. Alternatively cover with cling film until they double in size or for at least 1 hour.
13. Heat the oven to 200°C 14. To make the crosses, mix the flour & water until it makes a paste. Using a piping bag with a small nozzle, pipe across the buns. 15. Place buns in the centre of the oven, cook for 15 minutes. 16. Meanwhile make the glaze using 4tbsp of unsweetened almond milk warmed with 2 tsp. of coconut sugar. 17. Once the hot cross buns are removed from the oven, lightly brush with the glaze. 18. Leave to cool slightly on a wire rack, pour a cup of rooibos tea, slice hot cross bun in two, lightly toast if you wish and smother with goats’ butter.
Storage Best eaten in 2 days, store in an air tight container suitable for freezing.
Note- This is the first time we've baked with coconut palm sugar. It has a wonderfully caramel flavour, low GI, aids the digestive system & supports normal blood pressure & circulation. You could replace it with Xylitol & we've kept the amount we've used low.
Easter Energy Eggs CLEAN SUPPER CLUB
Our final recipe is particularly gorgeous Easter treats for you & your friends and family to share! Meet our Easter Energy Eggs loaded with cacao and great fun to make with the children (so long as they don't eat too much of the mix).

If you’d like a trio of flavoured Energy Eggs remove from food processor and separate mixture into thirds.
