There are certain recipes where you really really really don't need sugar, and scones is one of them. Clearly if you have a sweet tooth the addition of dried fruit gives you a natural fructose kick, and if you really must a smudge of good quality/homemade conserve will provide all the sweetness you need to make this a super filling, tasty, moorish treat.
Ingredients
  • 450g/16oz self raising unrefined flour (i used wholemeal)
  • 100g/4oz chopped apricots (you can used any dried fruit you like or leave plain)
  • 150g/6oz organic butter
  • 2 free range eggs, beaten
  • 6-8 tablespoons almond milk (you can use organic milk if you prefer)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425f/220C
  2. Sieve the flour into a large mixing bowl and rub the butter into the flour until you have coarse breadcrumbs
  3. sprinkle in the dried fruit
  4. pour in the beaten egg and milk and stir to combine
  5. form the dough into a ball and turn onto a lightly floured work surface
  6. press into a rectangle about 1inch (2cm) thick
  7. either cut into 10/12 squares/triangles or use a pastry cutter to cut out 10/12 scones

You can substitute the 100g of dried fruit for 100g of grated cheese for a tasty savoury option.
