“Cheesy” buckwheat & flax drop-scones (gluten-free, vegan, no added fat)

Cheesy bread drop scones

When I don’t have any eggs to hand I am pleased to revert to a fat-free healthier option and use chickpea flour as an alternative. I use a coarse ground chickpea flour called maghaj but gram flour works just as well.

I love nutritional yeast, it’s very tasty and low calorie. It is fat-free, full of vitamins, high in fibre. has lots of protein and it has a lovely cheesy flavour. It also has a long shelf life so you can always have some in the cupboard as a standby for recipes like this, Nutritional yeast and real Parmesan or grated cheddar work equally well.

Servings:3-4Prep Time:3Cook Time:10
These quick drop scones are a great alternative bread when you need a roll with a bowl of soup or salad.  Straight out the pan, maybe a wipe of butter or spread, they are crispy and cheesy on their own and make a tasty healthy snack. Good for lunch boxes too.

    Hello there from New Zealand. What an interesting recipe, I am interested to try it for our family, as we are just entering soup season down here. Was just wondering if there is supposed to be any chick pea flour in the recipe, since you mention chick pea flour at the beginning of the article? Thanks for your help? Fiona in NZ
