Cheese Scones

I’ve been meaning to make these for a while and I’m so glad I did.  They go brilliantly with the ‘Bruschetta and Dips’ as a lunch or as a starter.  They can seem quite hard on the outside but they are soft in the middle.

I’ve used a Laughing Cow extra light cheese triangle to spread on the scones in the picture – one of these is free on No Count and 2 of the cheese triangles are 1 point.

The scones are just 1 point each on No Count or 3 points if tracking.  (If tracking, you could replace the oats with plain flour.)


Ingredients (makes 9 small ones):

  • 200g oats, blitzed in food processor
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 50g Protein cheese
  • 70g Flora light
  • 3 tbsp skimmed milk
  • a pineapple ring (optional)


  1. Mix the blitzed oats, salt and baking powder in a bowl.
  2. Add the Flora and rub together with fingers.
  3. Whisk the egg with the milk and add to the mixture.
  4. Add the Protein cheese and knead the mixture together.
  5. I made six small scones and then added a blitzed pineapple ring to the remainder of the mixture to make three scones with cheese and pineapple.
  6. Put in the oven on 200C for 15-20 mins.

    1. Hi Sam, I haven’t tried them with Ready Brek: the oats are a more solid base as the Ready Brek tends to be more spongy. You could always give it a try and let me know what you think. Hope you have a fab day:-) Helen xxxxx

  4. Your cheese scones are totes amaze balls, out of the oven nice and warm to go with the split pea soup, Could I use half fat cheese.

    1. Hi Julie, that sounds delicious! 😋😋💕 You could use half fat cheese but you would need to weigh it and work out the points. It might make the scones 1 point each. Hope you have a fab weekend, Helen xxx
