Date Scones

Pile in the dates and there's no need to pile in the sugar. Awesomeness.

INGREDIENTS
  • 25-35 large pitted dates chopped in half
  • 2 1/2 cups self raising flour
  • 80 g olive oil spread (sub butter if not making vegan)
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup almond milk or a little more to make the mixture fairly moist (sub milk if not making vegan)
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  2. Lightly grease a baking tray and leave to the side until needed.
  3. Put all of the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly with a knife. With your fingers, add the butter to the dry mixture and create a crumbly texture.
  4. Add the pitted dates and mix through.
  5. Add the almond milk and mix with your fingers until a dough like mixture is formed. Work quickly and don't overmix!
  6. Put the dough mixture onto a floured surface and using a cup, cut out 6 rounds.
  7. Place the rounds close together on a greased tray.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes, until lightly golden.
  9. Allow to cool on a wire rack and serve warm.
