There’s something about a scone. Whether it’s the nostalgia (my grandma was a prolific & perfect scone maker) or perhaps it’s the fact that the texture is that perfect cross between biscuit & cake, whatever the reason I just know that I love them!
Now it may seem an insurmountable challenge to create that perfect crumbly & yet buttery texture without butter, but we all know I love a culinary puzzle & well to cut a long story short these beauties deliver everything you’d want & MORE.
The combination of sweet spices & delicate pear with cacao remove the need for additional sweeteners, the combination of the naturally gluten free flours with ground & whole oats provide nuttiness & that texture we were looking for, & then we swoop in & add chocolate which to my mind only ever benefits a situation.
So yes today we make scones, but we make scones my way, I’ll leave the pronunciation up to you though 🙂
