Mediterranean Scones

90g spelt flour

80g organic plain flour (or use all spelt flour) 

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

50g vegan butter

90ml oat milk (with a squeeze of lemon)

10 olives chopped

5 sundried tomatoes chopped

Vegan feta crumbled 

Chopped parsley 

Pre Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7 and place a baking tray into the oven to heat up.

Put the milk into a jug along with the lemon juice abs set aside 

Tip the flours into a large bowl with the salt and baking powder, then mix. Add the butter, then rub in with your fingers until the mix looks like fine crumbs. Add the olives, sundried tomatoes and feta with a little chopped parsley and mix in.

Make a well in the dry mix, then add the liquid and combine it quickly with a cutlery knife – it will seem pretty wet at first. 

Scatter some flour onto the work surface and tip the dough out. Dredge the dough and your hands with a little more flour, then fold the dough over 2-3 times until it’s a little smoother. Pat into a round about 4cm deep.

Cut into 6 equal pieces and pop onto the warm baking tray. Brush over a little more oat milk and pop into the oven for around 15 minutes or until golden

Remove from the oven and allow to cool and enjoy
