No better time than the present to bake up that abundance of summer fruit! And thanks to Britt’s hard work, this recipe presents a perfectly-ratio’ed, multi-grained opportunity to do so. 3 parts flour : 1 part fat: 1 part liquid: 1 part eggs are the ticket to hearty, whole grain scones with a lightly crisp exterior and those tender, flakey crumbs scones are beloved for, inside. Teff flour, what is used to make the flat, crêpe-like Ethiopian bread injera, takes a starring role in these scones. Teff flour is all kinds of nutritious, and is notably high in vitamin C (rare for a grain) and far surpasses all other grains when it comes to calcium. Find Teff flour at natural food stores or at grocery stores with a good selection of whole grains. Enjoy these scones alongside your morning coffee or munch on them throughout the day for a satisfying anytime snack. Afternoon tea time also encouraged.
“ I've learned over the years that gluten-free doesn’t have to mean deprivation. When done well, gluten-free dishes and baked goods can be just as good—and often better!—than their gluten-filled counterparts. ”
Britt’s discovery of her gluten intolerance several years back motivated her to start GF in the City, her blog where she began to discuss and explore her new lifestyle and experiment with recipes. It quickly became a passion, and Britt embraced her new dietary needs as a chance to explore and create in the kitchen. In fact, Britt’s passion for food and cooking only grew with the “restriction” of being gluten free. Since starting her blog, Britt has adopted a vegan diet, so her more recent recipes are vegan in addition to being GF. Whatever your dietary needs, Britt’s enthusiasm to create fun, delicious food is contagious and her thoughtful write-ups will keep you wanting to read more.
