Whatever you do make this savoury snack! Who knew a traditionally sweet breakfast scone would make such a yummy savoury finer food? Scones have such a wonderful texture and that texture makes them perfect for baby led weaning! The slightly crispy and firm outside make them easy for babies to grasp with their little hands, yet the crumbly and soft inside make them easy for babies of all ages to chew. When you are introducing foods to baby, it’s always a relief when you can hand them something to feed themselves that won’t make an epic mess.
Have Scones, Will Travel
These scones are great to pack for lunch boxes or day trips because they don’t have to be kept cold they stay yummy all day! Healthy savoury snacks that travel well are not always easy to find. Typically savoury snacks that are quick and do not spoil come in the form of a bag of crisps or salty crackers. These cheese and onion scones give you the opportunity to switch things up a bit.
If you’re home, it’s amazing to top these scones with plain greek yoghurt or a little sour cream. Looking for more fun ideas? You can top these scones with almost anything from cheese and yoghurt to eggs or even hummus! For babies and toddlers who like to “dip” you can serve with a few of their favourite dip options on the side!
Have I mentioned that these savoury snacks are freezer friendly? Well, they are and they are a lifesaver for quick after school snacks(or during homeschooling). Just take them out of the freezer, wrap in a paper towel and pop them in the microwave for 15-25 seconds. Boom, after school snack!
Whether you serve these savoury scones as a fun scone sandwich or a healthy appetizer, it’s sure to be a hit with your little ones. Sometimes keeping things simple to start is the best way when introducing new foods to your baby. Scones are simple to make and easy to serve. No matter how you choose to serve these yummy scones, I hope they make your life a little yummier!
