i hart nutrition


I recently came across these vegan rosemary blueberry scones on @theminimalistbaker’s blog. Sweet & Savoury? Count me in! After a few personal twists & tweaks (cashew milk for almond milk, coconut sugar for cane sugar, red fife flour for spelt flour), I had landed on the perfect sweet & savoury breakfast, snack, or pick-me-up.

Why I  these:

red fife flour– Red Fife is lower in gliadin (gluten protein) than modern wheat varieties. It is known to be a sustainable crop that doesn’t require fertilizer or pesticides, and its carbon footprint is minimal. I purchased mine at Wychwood Farmers market (brand Red Fife by Rowe )

coconut oil– I love cooking with coconut oil. It has a high smoke point which means it’s nutrients do not get harmed at high temperatures. I used Vita Coco coconut oil which I love 

coconut sugar–  has minerals such as iron, zinc, calcium and potassium.

  5. 1 tbsp baking powder
  6. 1/3 cup frozen blueberries
  7. 1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt (or sea salt)
  8. 6 tbsp room temp coconut oil (make sure not to use melted or liquid form!)

  10. 1 tbsp lightly chopped fresh rosemary


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

  4. Add in whisked egg (or flax egg), and cashew milk. Mix.
  5. Add in blueberries and use your hands to kneed them into the dough. (Don’t over mix!)
  6. Transfer to a floured surface and use your hands to form it into a disc about 1 inch in height. Use a large knife to cut the circle into 6- 8 wedges. Then use a floured spatula to transfer the scones to the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the tops with a bit more rosemary.
