These little buns of soda bread are the perfect size to share. Unbelievably and deliciously vegan.

1/4cup49g granulated sugar or (36g) coconut palm sugar
2tablespoonscoconut oilat room temperature

Zest the orange into a small bowl or onto a bit of waxed paper and set it aside.
In a small bowl, add the golden raisins and about 2 tablespoons of juice from the orange. Allow the raisins to soak in the orange juice for at least 30 minutes or longer.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and sugar. Add the coconut oil and the zest from the orange. Using your fingers, work the coconut oil into the flour.
In a measuring cup or small bowl, combine the almond milk and vinegar. Drain the raisins and add them in as well.
Pour the mixture over the dry ingredients and using a spoon or spatula, mix until combined.
Using a 1/3 cup measuring cup, scoop out a level amount of dough. Drop the dough into floured hands and create a ball. Repeat until you've made six balls. Using a small sharp knife, cut a cross into each bun, about a half inch down.
Bake the loaves for about 15 minutes. Remove and cool on a wire rack.
