Author Notes

I've been working on this little thing called 'self control', you may have heard of it. Pulling in the reins on portion size is a good way to regulate quantity, whilst sacrificing nothing of the quality. These scones are the perfect treat for those that want (or need) a sweet delight to start their morning or end their day. These plump little cherubs are completely free of dairy, sugar and grains and are the perfect lunchbox treat.

The mixed berry compote, has the versatility of a sturdy black shoe, but with the flavour of a cha-cha skirt. Not only do they sit proudly atop the cashew scones, but could fly solo or grace the bowls of cereals, puddings, and ice-creams very comfortably. I like to buy the frozen berries, as they are the most affordable, and last forever in the freezer. Likewise, once made, the compote can sit in the fridge for weeks, if not scoffed on the first day. —Sandra Ramacher
