White self-raising flour

1 cup(s), (150g)

Ground cinnamon

2 tsp

Mixed spice

1 tsp

Granulated stevia sweetener

2 tsp

Orange zest

1 tsp


45 g

99% fat-free plain yoghurt

cup(s), (160g)

Plain flour

1 tbs

Sugar-free maple flavoured syrup

1 tbs

Icing sugar

1 tsp

Ground cinnamon

¼ tsp


  1. Combine flour, cinnamon, spice, salt, stevia, currants and rind in a large bowl. Stir in yoghurt until combined enough to knead. Turn out onto a lightly floured bench and knead until dough is soft and smooth. Divide into 5 parts.
  2. In a small bowl, combine plain flour and 2 teaspoons of water to make a smooth paste for the crosses.
  3. Heat a waffle iron following instructions. Shape a dough blob into a ball and flatten slightly. Using a teaspoon make a cross with the paste. Place in waffle iron and cook for 6 minutes. Repeat to make 4 more waffles.
  4. Combine syrup, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Brush over waffles while still hot. Serve.


For BAGELS: Shape dough blob into a sausage, then join ends together. Make a cross with the paste. Cook in Airfryer for 8 minutes, or oven for 10 mins. For BUNS: Shape blobs into smooth balls. Make a cross on top with the paste. Cook in oven for 12 minutes at 190°C.
