It can be difficult getting enough protein into your diet, particularly if you are vegetarian or vegan. One simple way to increase your intake is to use a protein supplement.  Adding some into a daily shake or into your favourite recipes is simple once you know how.

This recipe is high in healthy protein thanks to the addition of Vital Protein. We’d like to give thanks to our friends at Martin and Pleasance for sharing.

SCONES RECIPE

Ingredients

1 teaspoon bicarbonate soda
2 Tablespoons of Vital Protein (Vanilla)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
300g Oat flour
150g plain flour
200ml Almond Milk
200ml Maple/agave/rice malt syrup
1 Tablespoon melted coconut oil

Method

Preheat oven to 180°C and grease a muffin tin with coconut oil (the heat from your hands will help melt the oil as you spread it).

Place all dry ingredients together in a bowl and mix together well. Use a whisk or fork for this.

Add wet ingredients and continue to slowly whisk all the ingredients together until a better is formed.

Pour the mixture into the muffin tins and bake for around 25 minutes or until a knife inserted has come out clean.

Leave your scones to cool in the tin (if you can wait that long!), then serve with yoghurt and chia jam.

CHIA JAM

Ingredients

1 cup raspberries (frozen are fine)

2 Tablespoons of chia seeds

1 cup of water

1 Tablespoon of agave/rice malt syrup (optional)

Method

Throw all ingredients into your blender on high for around 3 seconds, then transfer to a small pot and gently bring to the boil, stirring occasionally.

Once your jam is bubbling, turn down the heat to simmer and stir continuously for five minutes.

After 5 minutes or once your jam has thickened nicely, transfer to a sterilised jar and refrigerate.

Serve with Coconut Yoghurt.
