Scones are such a versatile baked treat and popular all year round. From savoury scones (biscuits) served with warming winter soups, to delicate cream tea inspired versions, the possibilities and flavour combinations are endless. Here we have combined our Einkorn Flour with seasonal blackberries, earthy walnuts and a few pinches of freshly grated nutmeg. Serve these while still warm with a skiff of ‘butter’ for a comforting hug to the tummy.

1/2cupAnita’s Organic Almond Flour
1/2tspFreshly grated nutmeg
1/3cupAnita’s Organic Cane Sugar

Preheat the oven to 425˚F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl or jug whisk together the yogurt, milk and lemon juice. Set aside.
In a large bowl sift together the flours and baking powder. Stir in the salt, nutmeg and sugar until evenly combined.
Cut the non-dairy butter into teaspoon size pieces and drop into the flour mixture. Using your fingertips or a pastry cutter work the butter into the flour until almost all of the butter has been incorporated. A few peas size lumps of butter left in the mixture is fine.

Add the yogurt mixture to the dry mixture and fold everything together until fully incorporated. Form the dough into one large ball and place on a lightly floured work surface. Flatten and mold the dough into a 7-inch round circle. With a sharp knife cut the circle into 8 equal triangles (or use a circular cookie cutter if you prefer round scones). Carefully transfer the scones to the parchment lined baking sheet.
