Since coming back to London, I’ve been craving scones! Those buttery scones with cream and jam are literally the best – BUT – they can be so unhealthy and so high in calories!
This is why, I’ve decided to create this healthy scone recipe sweetened with a healthy 2 ingredients “caramel”. They are only 115 calories each and taste the absolute BEST!
What’s good with this recipe is that you do not need any type of sugar as it is naturally sweetened with the caramel.
For the caramel
10-12 pitted dattes
4 tbsp water
For the scones
120g wholewheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 tbsp milk of choice
1/4 tbsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp honey
Pre-heat your oven to 180°.
In a blender put the ingredients for the caramel and mix well until you have a smooth paste.
In a bowl combine the flour and baking powder and mix until everything is combined. Add all other ingredients and stir well until you have an almost sticky texture.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Start forming flat disks with your texture and put the healthy caramel paste in the middle. Close it up onto a flat-ish ball.
Pop in the oven for 20 mins.
Get your cuppa ready because your scones are ready to be enjoyed 😉
Until the next recipe,
