[LOVE TIP 30'] I love scones. Either in their traditional sweet version with cream and jelly, or in the savoury one with grated cheese and seeds… It is an easy-fast-delicious snack to prepare in less than half an hour, to be enjoyed all day long. So stay with me for this healthy up version with oats!
Ingredients for 5 big scones. Preparation 5′+ bake 15′
Better if you can pick organic flour of course..
2,5 cups of flour, 1 cup of oats , 3 ts of baking powder, 1/2 ts of salt, 100 g of butter, 1 cup of milk (I commonly use vegetal milk, soy or almond milk work well). So this is a light version: no egg, no cream, oats replacing part of flour. You could also push it further and use wholegrain flour… And then splurge on cream and jelly? …
Optional : 1 pinch of cinnamon/ 3 ts of seeds or dried fruits/ orange or lemon zest/ 2 ss of grated cheese…Twists are endless..
1. Preheat the oven at 250°
2. Mix all ingredients, shape 5 balls of the size of a fist (should be 3 cm high or so). For a nice golden colour, swift some milk on top.
3. Bake for 15′. Retrieve from oven and let cool. Now you can enjoy them!
So, what would be your favorite version of scones? Do you like them bland and plain or would you rather add some chunky nuts and stuff in them?
