Oatmeal, Spelt + Honey Scones
Here is a wonderful and healthy scone recipe that is simple to bake and really delicious. I love using 100 % wholemeal spelt flour in this recipe as it gives it a wonderful flavour and a delicious crumb when you bite into it. I’ve also used quality cultured butter in this recipe which adds flavour and the most amazing mouthfeel.
What’s great about them
Spelt is an ancient grain that is related to wheat, but has a lower gluten content so it’s kinder to the digestive system with people with gastrointestinal issues and sensitivities to wheat. It’s a good source of protein as it has around 20% more protein + up to 65% more amino acids than traditional wheat flours. Wholemeal spelt as well as the oats are a good source of fibre, so it can help keep you regular and help in lowering cholesterol. These make a great snack or light meal, perfect to refuel glycogen stores after a training session. I love to top mine with a little ricotta and honey.
