Hands up who gets an energy slump in the afternoon? It’s great to know we are not alone! Looking for a new healthy snack to try out? We’ve got you sorted.
When our friends at Midleton Healthy Hub told RSVP Live that they had the perfect recipe for a quick and easy five ingredient, energy providing and deciduous scones, we thought we’ll have some of that.
Being conscientious as we are, we went all out and made these beauties and so we can verify first hand that they are as delicious as they are nutritious. One tip from us is that you need to double the recipe as it makes just four large scones or eight little ones, so double up and you won’t have to hide them!
They are everyday oat and chia scones and trust us you will want them every day. They are great for a breakfast, lunch or an afternoon snack. If you use gluten free oats the scones will be gluten and dairy free.
Everyday oat and chia scones:
250g oats (porridge, rolled or jumbo oats will work)
160ml oat milk
1.5tbsp chia seeds
1tbsp maple syrup
1tsp baking powder
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
Start by milling your oats in a food processor or high speed blender (Roz uses a nutriBullet – we used a hand blender) to a flour consistency. Tip into a large bowl with all the other ingredients and stir to combine into a wet dough.
Using a spoon, scoop the dough into four sections on the baking tray to form scones, pressing each one down a little. Bake in a preheated oven for 25 minutes.
Allow to cool on a wire rack before serving.
Roz likes to serve them with chia jam either blackberry or raspberry and almond butter or mashed avocado, all these recipes are also featured in the same book.
The Midleton Health Hub recommend their healthy version of jam and cream which is greek yogurt and berries!
