Clean Lean Protein Low Sugar Treats
TIME:40 Min., SERVES:6

Here is a protein-filled alternative to a usually carbohydrate dominated treat. Your taste buds won't believe this Spelt and Protein Scones recipe is low-sugar, not to mention packed with protein.


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. 
  2. Sieve flour, protein and baking powder into a bowl. Rub butter into sifted ingredients until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  3. Add coconut sugar and milk and combine until mixture is soft but not sticky. Mixing with your hands is best but a spatula will also work.
  4. Turn dough out on a lightly floured board and knead into shape until smooth. Try not to overwork the mixture or the scones could become tough.
  5. Flatten dough out to about 4 cm and use a round cutter to cut scones starting from the center and working your way out. Cut slightly higher rounds from left over dough.
  6. Place rounds on a lined oven tray with sides just touching. 
  7. Brush tops with a little milk before placing them in the oven for 12-15 mins or until golden.
  8. Serve with jam and cream or ricotta.
