I have come to the conclusion through lots of googling and absolutely no medical expertise that I may be slightly intolerant to dairy. I won't get all "embarrassing bodies" on here but having cut dairy out for two weeks in May I definitely felt better. I haven't been able to keep up with the no-dairy thing though, I mean MOZZARELLA! BRIE! LATTE! I just can't stop having all the lovely things! I have zero willpower.
While I was on my no-dairy kick I decided to experiment with a bit of non-dairy baking. I was initially rather proud of these scones, however, someone kindly pointed out on twitter that they aren't dairy-free. I still don't quite understand it as I thought sheep's cheese was dairy-free but apparently not. *shrugs*
Either way it is delicious and cow's milk free which seems to be what causes my issues so I am happy....
I would be interested to hear if any of you have a food intolerance and how you handle it.
These beauties didn't look like traditional scones, but the flavour was amazing. The smokey manchego really came through and the spelt flour added a nuttyness to the dough without being dry. Overall I was impressed with them and had them alongside homemade soup for my lunches all week long!
- 250g Plain Flour
- 200g Spelt Flour
- 1 teaspoon Bicarbonate of soda
- a pinch of Salt
- 30g Pure Dairy-free spread
- 325ml Almond Milk
- 110g Manchego Cheese
- A handful of Roughly chopped chives
I managed to get 15 scones from this dough, which worked out at 4 Weight Watchers Propoints each.
If you have any tips on how to be dairy-free I would love to hear them, or any recipes you may have please leave me a link!? Thanks!
