Heavenly healthy scones

It's weekend yaaay! That means you can make yourself a delicious treat for breakfast, because my friend was still here, I of course had to promise her to make a delicious breakfast. My friends and family already knew for years I love to cook and bake, but since my blog went online nobody is hesitating to ask me if I have some leftovers to bring by ;-) Hahha well anyway, I was thinking about what to make in the morning.. pancakes.. granola.. we had a million times.. but what about a delicious treat like a scone? YES, PLEASE! Ofcourse it had to be healthy, so I swapped out the butter for apple sauce and coconut oil, made it lactose free and not so sugary! So a low GI, healthy scone version was created in minutes. Point made, you have to try this recipe when you love scones ;-)

Heavenly healthy scones


250g whole wheat spelt flour
160g oats
25g palm sugar
10g stevia sugar
16g baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 egg slightly beaten
90g apple sauce
30g coconut oil
100ml soy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla aroma
pinch of salt

Preheat an oven on 200 degrees Celsius. Than in a bowl mix the dry ingredients, the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a separate bowl mix the egg, apple sauce, milk, vanilla and coconut oil (make sure it's liquid before adding). Than it's time to mix the dry and wet ingredients and form a big bowl of the batter. If it's to wet and sticky, add a bit of flower but these amounts should give you exactly the perfect batter. Divide the batter into 8 balls and bake them for 15 minutes in the oven. I divided half of my batter and added some frozen blueberries to make it a bit different! Feel free to add currants, raspberries, chocolate or whatever you like! 

Serve with a dollop ricotta cheese and strawberry jam.. hmmm.. bon appetit!
