    Ohhhhhh, these are adorable! I always make hot cross buns for Easter but I have never seen these clever bunny shapes. Definitely making mine in these cute shapes this year. The addition of orange zest and cranberries also sounds delicious and I want to try that to my recipe as well. Hot Cross Buns, Hot Cross Buns, One a penny, Two a penny, Hot Cross Buns!!

    • Judith Lickteig says:

      Adorable!!! I just replaced the bun recipe on my Easter Brunch menu with this recipe. Love oranges and cranberries! I’ll be doing a pre-run on these this weekend. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Ellen says:

    I love these! Combines two of my favorite things – hot cross buns and bunnies. Thanks!

  3. Terry Steinmetz says:

    These are going to be made for my grandgirls when I get back to their place from Florida! How precious & yummy looking!

  4. Absolutely adorable, will try these bunnies out for sure. thanks for the cute recipe!

  5. Krista says:

    These are so dang cute! Perfect for an Easter morning breakfast. I would love to try these and share them with the family on Easter.

  6. Jackie Edmondson says:

    Just the cutest. The grand & gr grand kids will love them

  7. Ashley says:

    I CANNOT wait to try these! They’re adorable and sound delicious! I love making breads by hand, but I have a two year old and a two month old, so all our bread is made in the bread machine right now. Would it be safe (spoilage wise) to make this dough on a 2:20 dough machine setting? Or would you recommend a shorter time?

    If any other commenter has a recommendation, I’d appreciate it!

    Thanks ladies!

  8. Sally Jadlow says:

    How cute! I’ll definitely make these!

  9. lindy felix says:

    do you think they will work with gluten free flour blend?

  10. Denise says:

    I have never made hot cross buns but these bunnies I will have give a try! Love the combine of orange zest and cranberries. I use yeast in bulk, is there a measurement for the amount in a package?

  11. Amy J. says:

    These look like some sort of tender edible greens? Not much longer before the green house plants can go directly into the ground out your way. Old Man Winter is on the way out.

    Gruyere is a fantastic tasting and performing cheese. It makes everything delicious and creamy. Do you make it in your dairy? I was wondering if it requires milk from cows with a higher content of butterfat or is it just he way it is cured? Either way, what a staple to have in one’s fridge!

Today’s Recipe: Banana-Coconut Breakfast Quinoa

  1. Winnie Nielsen says:

    This looks so yummy! I am going to have to give it a try for something different.

  2. Jodie says:

    Thank you MJF!!!! I soooo appreciate the gluten free and dairy free options that you have been adding to the website and magazine. My husband has been GF and DF for a year. It’s done miraculous things for his cholesterol, almost 100 point improvement in less than 14 weeks. His headaches went away and he’s had no more problems with his esophagus constricting while eating. I hated to say that we were GF/DF because it seemed like such a fad, but it’s done wonders. So thank you for including these yummy, wholesome, organic recipes to your mix. It is fabulous!!!

  3. Betty J. says:

    Love your polka-dotted apron. Can you tell me if coconut milk is lactose-free?

  4. Jaimey says:

    This looks amazing! Thanks for sharing the recipe! I am going to make this for sure!!!

  5. Jan Laducer says:

    Has any one tried almond milk in place of coconut milk? Cranberries go well with almonds and coconut too.

  6. I just made it, it is yummy! Going to recommend it for my food allergy grand daughter.

  7. Deon Matzen says:

    We make a similar dish that I learned in Hawaii. Instead of quinoa we uses rice. I just put the sliced bananas in with the grain, don’t puree it. No honey as the bananas make it sweet enough. Sometimes add a little mango too.

  8. Denise says:

    This looks so good and for once I have all these ingredients on hand to make this.
    I’m going to save this one for sure! Thank you MaryJane.

  9. Krista says:

    This is a delicious breakfast recipe. The banana and coconut remind me of warm beaches. This is the perfect thing to eat as we daydream about the upcoming summer! I would love to try it with mangos added.

  10. Connie says:

    I have to keep a tight rein on my sugar so can this be made with less honey? Also I an allergic to tree nuts so can the almonds be left out? Thanks.

  11. Melissa Eloe says:

    Dear MaryJane,
    This looks like a great alternative to the daily oatmeal. Do you know if it could be made in the crockpot? Thanks so much for everything, Melissa

    • MaryJane says:

      Here’s what my DIL, Ashley, MaryJanesFarm kitchen guru had to say:
      Hi Melissa,
      We haven’t tried this one in a crockpot, so I can’t say for certain if it would work, but I think if you added a little extra coconut milk to prevent the mixture from drying out, it could work. If you do try it, let us know how it turned out!

  12. heidi says:

    This looks really good! I was wondering if you could do this in a crockpot, so it’s ready in the morning. Also, would it keep well if divided up and stored in the freezer?
