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.

  3. In a jug whisk together the egg and yogurt, then make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the egg and yogurt. Mix well until it forms a dough. If it is too sticky just add a little extra flour until it comes together like a dough.
  4. Empty onto a floured worktop and knead gently, then cut out scones or if you don’t have a cutter roll dough and cut with a knife.
