Chestnut & Rice buns

1st Attempt! Wanted to find a way of using chestnut flour and rice flour other than in bread. Just made these this morning and I am quite pleased with the taste. The amount of sugar could be altered as i dont like things too sweet. I woulsd sugestmore if you have a sweet tooth !! I felt they had a lovely taste but were a bit dry. Next time I shall try adding some fruit and also plan to try coco powder as well, watch this space.

just thought it worth mentioning, this is gluten free and also fat free and only 8g sugar per bun so not too bad on the old waistline !!

Chestnut and Rice buns
I do not have a sweet tooth so the sugar content is quite low, just add more sugar if needed, I would try 108g. I found them a little dry but maybe next time would add some fruit but the flavour is really nice. Will try adding some coco the next time for a chocolate version. Substitute 20g of rice flour for 20g coco powder. I use Green & Black
