Baby Led Weaning Rhubarb Scones
Over the past few weeks, I have been trying to cook as much as possible. We are all stuck at home and I know how hard it can be to keep kids busy and baking is a super way to fill up a few hours. This baby-led weaning recipe for healthy rhubarb scones, will not only make you super happy but they are also a perfect healthy treat idea for kids too.
A baby-led weaning recipe in my eyes should be one that not only tastes great and is safe for babies, but it should also be so good that parents eat it too. One meal for the entire family. That is why these yummy scones work! My older kids devour them every single time and the younger kids love them as well.
All of the ingredients were available in Dunnes Stores when I did a shop over the weekend and I stocked up on my baking products. The most important ones for me were; flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder! Once I have those I can pretty much make a LOT of different recipes. If you haven’t been able to get some products in your shop, I have listed a few good swaps for you that will work!
The flour mix I used was a blend of both wholemeal and plain. You can just use wholemeal or plain. If you only have self raising flour, you can use that too, just leave out the baking powder from the other ingredients.
Use self-raising flour if you don’t have baking powder
Switch to any type of sugar you have instead.
For the topping I used Greek Yogurt to serve, you can also use cream, or just butter and jam!
Egg for brushing
If you don’t have egg for brushing, just use a little rapeseed oil brushed on the top to help the scones to brown slightly.
Swap rhubarb for; berries, peeled and sliced apple, mango slices or even pineapple.
