Healthy scones with oatmeal
This morning I finished my last nightshift as a medical doctor intern on the hospital, 1 year has gone by since I started, and it has soon come to an end. SO I wanted to celebrate, and my body craved for something warm, hearty and moist.
I wanted healthy scones with oatmeal. So to celebrate I composed these heart- healthy, protein (1 scone contain 8 grams of protein!)- and low- fat scones. Which by the way is gluten- free, sugar- free and almost fat- free. As you know I am a big fan of the british high- tea or afternoon tea. One of my favorite, local afternoon- tea spots when I lived in London was my local tea room The Orange Pekoe. This recipe is far from what the original scones are, these healthy scones are more like a morning or afternoon- snack scone. They also made the perfect sidekick for my dinner tonight which was beetroot and carrot soup!
Healthy scones with oatmeal
These hearty and healthy scones with oatmeal are super moist and yummy, very easy and quick to make, and works perfect as a morning, mid-day, evening- snack or as a side kick to your dinner. And they are clean and gluten free scones as well as low- fat scones. As with all scones; they are best the same day they are made. Many of the ingredients can be substituted; don´t forget to check the Tip- section. And use the conversion calculator on the right menu if needed!
Ingredients (14 scones):
300 grams/ 6 dl Oatmeal flour
30 grams Coconut flour, reduced fat
30 grams Baking protein, natural flavor (for substitution see tip-section)
1 topped teaspoon Baking powder
1 tablespoon Chia seeds (for substitution see tip-section)
5 dl Milk of choice (regular/almond/oatmeal/soy/lactose-free)
1 dl/100 grams/ 3 topped tablespoons Quark, light
1 medium sized Egg, organic and free- range
2 tablespoons Organic brown rice syrup (or raw honey)
- Blend the dry ingredients in a bowl, mix. Whisk the egg in another bowl, and add the rest of the wet ingredients.
- Let rest for 5 minutes. If the dough is too dense add a bit milk, if it is too loose add a bit oatmeal flour.
- Use two spoons and make little “tops” of healthy scones dough on the baking paper. Bake on 175 degrees celsius/ 347 Farenheit for ca. 15-18 minutes. They should be golden on top, and soft inside. When you knock underneath them they should have a hollow sound when they are done.
- Top with whatever you want for example skinny vanilla quark, clean nut butters (for example the Homemade almond butter), clean berry jams, or go all out with a homemade garlic butter which I did (you can mix your own clean garlic “butter” with fresh garlic and coconut oil in a blender)!
- If you want a less dense scone, and don´t care about the protein content you can substitute the baking protein for oatmeal flour.
- If you want to cut the calories even more, just substitute some of the milk with water.
- If you don’t´t have brown rice malt syrup, you can use honey (2 tablespoons) or stevia (2 teaspoons).
- Chia seeds can be substituted with another fiber supplement such as psyllium husk.
- If you don´t have oatmeal flour you can make your own by grinding them in a food processor.
