Ideally served straight away but can keep the scones for up to 3 days in an airtight container.

Just like Pimms and lemonade... Scones, cream and jam are a summer essential, especially when Wimbledon is on - they are a British tradition! If you eat a free-from diet and don’t have refined sugar, these delicious scones are the perfect (and healthier) treat without missing out on that scrumptious scone taste. Enjoy outside in the sunshine if you’re lucky!

  1. First make the scones: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line a large baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
  2. Mix together the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon in a bowl.
  3. Rub in the solid coconut oil until you have a breadcrumb mixture then stir in the dried cherries, sultanas or raisins.
  4. Whisk together the milk, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar and vanilla then pour into the dry ingredients. Stir well to combine and form a soft dough.
  5. Flour a surface and roll out the dough to 4cm thickness. Use a cutter to cut out about 8 scones and arrange on the tray. Brush each with a little extra milk.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden and firmed up. Leave to cool.
  7. Meanwhile make the chia jam: Heat the berries in a pan with 2 tablespoons of water for 5 minutes until softened then mash gently with a fork.
  8. Remove from the heat and stir in the stevia and chia seeds. Mix well and set aside for at least 30 minutes to form a jam.
  9. Scrape out the solid part of the coconut cream from the can and spoon into a bowl along with the maple syrup and vanilla.
  10. Use an electric whisk to whip until quite thick. Transfer to a small dish and chill until needed.
  11. When ready to serve, spread some jam and coconut cream onto a scone and enjoy - try them warmed up!
