Afternoon tea just got that little bit better! Straight from the oven, slather with some cream cheese and a dash of homemade tomato ketchup for an ultimate afternoon treat. Or save them for later for an easy breakfast or pick-me-up!
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.
