Heathy Hunger Fix- Fig scones

The best way to start the day is by having homemade fig scones and a hot cup of tea. Fig scones are quick loaves of bread with a crumbly texture that are crispy at the edges and soft from inside, with figs being the essence of the dish. 

What’s more, to wait for, let’s get started with the recipe :

 

Total Time - 45 minutes 

Preparation Time - 15 minutes

Cooking Time - 30 minutes

Servings - 8 

 

INGREDIENTS:-

  1. 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  2. ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  3. 2 teaspoons baking powder
  4. ½ teaspoon salt
  5. ¼ cup canola oil
  6. 1 egg, lightly beaten
  7. ¼ cup honey
  8. ¼ cup white sugar
  9. 1 cup diced fresh figs

PROCESS:-

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly sprinkle flour over the paper. Also, Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Take another bowl, whisk flour, oats, salt, and baking powder.
  3. Mix oil and egg in a separate bowl until smooth; add honey.
  4. Mix oil mixture into flour mixture until batter is moist.
  5. Sprinkle sugar over figs in another bowl and toss to coat; fold it into the batter.
  6. Transfer the batter into the middle of the baking sheet formed.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Put the batter in the oven till the scones are lightly brown on top. It will take about 20 minutes.
  8. Cut the scone into multiple pieces and leave them to cool down.

 TIPS:-

  • Dry figs can be substituted.
  • Mix with ¼ cup of hot water and allow it to stand while preparing the rest of the batter.
  • Do not overcook or undercook the scone.
  • Scones taste excellent when they are at room temperature or warm.
  • Scones should be consumed the same day they are prepared. If frozen, they can be stored for around one month.
