I have been wanting to do some healthy baking so wholemeal scones seemed great, but OMG this recipe was not the one for me. 4 tsp of baking powder! That is way too much! These scones were bitter and acidic and utterly intolerable. Normally scones are a favourite of mine, but never have I tasted anything so nasty.

Fabulous! Though as I like my scones BIG then this is just 4 scones for me. Variation - added some sultanas and ground all spice. Yummy.

tasty and family agreed, but more of a sweet bread than scones, will do half white and half whole next time and might try them thinner with more Xylitol (as this is what i substituted for brown) sugar to see if they come out a bit like biscuits instead
