    Method

    • Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a flat baking tray with parchment paper.
    • In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, almond flour, ground flaxseed, coconut flour, whey protein powder, bicarbonate soda, xanthum gum, salt, cheese and chives.
    • Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the butter, egg, cream cheese and apple cider vinegar. Using a spoon, mix together until it comes together to form a ball of dough. The mixture should feel damp and hold together when pressed.
    • Using your hand or a rolling pin, flatten the dough to about 1.5cm thickness. Cut the dough into your shape of choice to form 10–12 scones.
    • Place the scones on a baking tray and egg wash the top.
    • Bake in the oven for about 15–20 minutes until golden and cooked through.
    • Enjoy with a slather of cream cheese and a dash of homemade tomato ketchup.
    • Store in an airtight container for up to a week. Toast or pop them in the oven for a few minutes to revive a crisp exterior.
