Slimming World scones recipe 

makes 8 
5½ Syns each 
ready in 25 minutes 

What you need: 

125g self-raising wholemeal flour 
100g extra-fine self-raising sponge flour 
1 level tsp baking powder 
30g low-fat spread 
1 large egg 
130ml fat-free natural yogurt 
low-calorie cooking spray 
2 level tsp skimmed milk, for brushing 

Herby cheese (6 Syns per scone): 

30g Parmesan, grated  
1 tsp paprika 
2 tsp dried mixed herbs 
½ tsp smoked garlic granules or onion powder 

Lime and ginger:  

grated zest of 1 lime 
2 tsp ground ginger 
1 tbsp freshly grated root ginger 
2 level tbsp sweetener granules (optional) 

What you do: 

1. Preheat your oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas 5. 

2. Put all of the flour, the baking powder and a pinch of salt in a bowl and mix together. Then, using your fingertips, rub the spread into the flour. If you’re making herby cheese or lime and ginger scones, mix in the extra ingredients now.  

3. Whisk together the egg and yogurt, then stir it into the flour mixture with a knife, until it all comes together in a ball. Add a little water if necessary. 

4. Turn the mixture out onto a floured surface and gently roll it out. Try to handle it as little as possible to keep the texture of the scones light and fluffy.  

5. Press out 8 scones using a 6cm cookie cutter, then leave to rest for 5 minutes (this will help them to rise). 

6. Put the scones on a non-stick baking sheet sprayed with low-calorie cooking spray and brush with the skimmed milk. Bake the scones for 12 minutes or until golden and firm, then leave to cool. These are delicious sliced in half and sandwiched together with some fat-free natural yogurt or plain quark and chopped or sliced fresh fruit, such as pineapple and kiwi.
