My family has English ancestry, and if there is one thing the English know how to do is cook, especially sweet food for the tea. In my house I have always been surrounded by sweets since I was little, and certainly at 5 o’clock in the afternoon it was my favorite moment of the day, why? Because it´s sweet food time aka tea time.
Among the pancakes, brownies, lemon cookies, and cakes, there were also some fluffy and slightly yellow biscuits, with a glaze or simply ready to be cut in the middle and put jam or butter. They were not the most tempting thing, but without doubt, these biscuits, or properly scones, which my grandmother used to make, were fantastic.
Since I started my healthy diet I stopped eating scones, although very occasionally I eat something with white flour or butter, I decided to create my own healthy scones recipe to be able to replace the classics ones at the time of the tea. And I believe that with this simple and delicious recipe I got it.
To make these scones you will need ingredients that you surely already have in your home or that you can easily get. These are oat flour, which you can buy or make yourself, processing oat flakes with a food processor or blender. Instant oat which gives an extra touch of texture to the recipe, wholewheat flour, which provides many nutrients and fiber that the classic scones do not have, and basic ingredients of each recipe such as eggs, oil (to replace the butter to achieve that classic texture of the scones), sugar (muscovado or coconut sugar) vanilla and last but not least, dark chocolate chopped to fill these scones with an incredible flavor.
It is an easy recipe to make, once you have all the ingredients just have to mix, put in a cake mold, divide the mixture into 6 or 8 portions, and bake until golden brown and cooked to the center, but not dry, since they are moist, soft, and with a lot of flavor.
Do you dare to try the recipe? You will not regret! If the tests tell me, send me an email or comment in the blog post how it came out, if you liked it, or that you would change it, I would love to listen to the advice of those who try my recipes! And if you share a photo on your Instagram or stories tag me like @gaspic_healthyberry so I can see it and I’ll share you in my stories!
Do not forget to share the recipe in your networks and with your loved ones, they will appreciate it as much as I do!
