Breakfast scones are a healthy option for rushed mornings or breakfast on the go.

Remember to wash your hands thoroughly!

  2. Sift the flours and baking powder in a bowl.
  3. Add the butter and rub in with your fingers until it is all mixed together and looks like breadcrumbs.
  4. Snip the chives over the bowl, add the tomatoes and stir in half the cheese.
  5. Mix in the milk to form a soft dough.
  6. Roll out to 2cm thick on a floured work surface and using a round cutter, cut out your scones, placing them on a baking tray.
  7. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese.
  8. Bake for about 10 minutes until golden.

These scones are so easily adapted. Try adding ham or bacon and swap the herbs according to taste. Try using different varieties of cheese too.

Put scones in an airtight container and they can then be frozen for up to 1 month.

Would you consider baking these at the weekend ready for busy weekday mornings?

  1. Great recipe lovely. I love a good food post. :) Happy eating little one. Thank you so much for linking up to Share With Me. I hope to see you again tomorrow for another great round of #sharewithme

  2. These look really good and so easy to make. I’m not what you’d call an inspired cook, so I’m always looking for recipes that aren’t complicated. Definitely going to have to try these, especially if I can switch out the flour for a gluten free version without wrecking it.

  3. These look great! Perfect for the kids to help make and easy to pop in the bag to take with us when we’re out and about, great idea. You have so many fab ideas for kids snacks and meals. :)
    Thanks so much for linking up to #Whatevertheweather :) x
