Good Morning Scones

I wanted to make a tasty scone that didn’t leave me feeling bloated when I enjoyed one mid morning and my aim was to have it sugar free and healthy so I combined a couple of fresh and dried ingredients you would normally have in the kitchen,  added some spices and used my Best Scone Recipe as the base. Here’s that recipe if you want to try it:  

So the Good Morning Scones were born! They are full of lovely naturally sweet ingredients like dried cranberries and sultanas plus using a mix of wholemeal flour with the plain flour adds a healthy, full of fibre boost. I used a mix of sunflower and pumpkin seeds to add even more healthy bites.

Cheese Straws – Gluten Free option

Cheese Straws are such a great recipe to go with any type of drinks you’re having. Whether it’s prosecco or a beer, they just work so well and can be serve on their own or as part of a platter with dips and other nibbles. Just two ingredients and you have it sorted!

You can make them as big or small as you like and as you can now buy Gluten Free Puff Pastry from Jus Rol, everyone can enjoy them. I prefer to make them with puff pastry as it gives a nice few layers to them but if you don’t or can’t get it, then use shortcrust pastry.

 I don’t claim this recipe to be in any way mine. It’s been doing the rounds for absolutely years and everyone has their version and their method. I found this one works for me. It does bake differently sometimes depending on what I add.

A friend gave me this recipe from I think a Weight Watchers book. It looks and tastes very like brown bread but uses no sugar, no flour, no oil or buttermilk … so it’s a healthier way to enjoy what seems like brown bread.
