Dr Michael Mosley is a journalist, doctor, and author of various diet books. He created The Fast 800 diet plan, which focuses on the best way to lose weight “fast”.

The Fast 800 helps slimmers plan their meals by offering hundreds of healthy recipes.

Some of these recipes are sweet treats that are perfect for Easter, such as Hot Cross Muffins.

These snacks are gluten free and dairy free alternatives to Hot Cross Buns.

They are also much higher in protein and have much fewer carbs than their usual wheat and flour-based counterparts.

They are spiced with the delicious flavours of Hot Cross Buns, but are much healthier and lighter.

Hot Cross Muffins are best served with butter or a dairy-free alternative.

Dr Mosley’s recipe serves nine people and the preparation time is 15 minutes, while the cooking time is 40 minutes.

There are only 235 calories in each Hot Cross Muffin and 7.4 percent protein.
