These scones have no added sugar, and perfect if you want to get rid of all processed food from your diet. They are seriously delicious, I was so surprised! They tasted just as good, if not nicer, than regular scones. Let me know how you get on with them.

- 2 cups (280 g /10 oz) wholemeal spelt flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 100 g (3 ½ oz) butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon raw honey or maple
- ½ cup (125 ml / 4 ½ fl oz) your choice of milk (dairy, nut, oat or rice)
- 120 g (1 cup / 4 ½ oz) raisins
- 1 cup (100 g / 3 ½ oz) rolled oats
Preheat your oven to 200°C / 400°F . Combine spelt flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Rub in the butter gently using your fingertips. Add the dried fruit.
Combine milk, honey and vanilla separately, then pour into the dry ingredients. Mix lightly to form a soft sticky dough.
Sprinkle half the oats onto a working surface and place over the soft dough. Flatten down slightly then sprinkle the rest of the oats on top. Gently press down until the scone dough is about 2.5 cm thick or about 1 inch. Cut into rounds with a cutter or squares with a sharp knife.
Place onto a lined baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
