Christmas Scones

Here’s a real taste of Christmas!  These mincemeat scones are slightly smaller than the blueberry ones in order to keep the points as low as possible – they are 2 points each on No Count (and totally worth it!).  If tracking they are quite high at 4.5 points each (you would have to decide whether to count one as 4 or 5 points).

Ingredients (makes 8):

  • 200g oats, blitzed in food processor
  • 2 flat tbsp Splenda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 60g mincemeat (9 points)
  • 70g Flora light (7 points)
  • 3 tbsp skimmed milk


  1. Mix the blitzed oats, Splenda, 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 mincemeat and really stir this into the mixture so that the flavour spreads everywhere.
  5. Divide into 8 and place on a baking tray.
  6. Put in the oven on 200C for 12 mins.

Serve with Skyr natural yogurt and No Count jam (see ).

*They will last for a couple of days but do taste better warmed up in the microwave.  They also freeze very well.


NB: Please read the information regarding blitzed oats, in the FAQ section, if you haven’t already done so.

      1. Helen it was truly amazing. I’ve frozen some. I’ve also baked some cake for my husband so as to keep him off my scones🙈💞

        1. Hi and thank you Abena, I’m really glad you liked them and what a great idea to bake something else for hubby! 👌🏻 They are fine once defrosted but do taste better if warmed up. 😋💕 Hope you have a lovely Sunday, Helen xxxxxxx

  2. These sound great. It is lovely to have recipes that are no count as I am currently fed up with the new system being thrown at me. I have lost over two stone and continuing to lose the last stone using no count and the brilliant, inventive recipe ideas you produce, thank you so much!

    1. Awww thank you Sharon, that’s so kind of you. Wishing you the best of luck in losing your final stone – and I really hope that No Count plays a part in helping you to do it. Enjoy the recipes and hope you have a fab weekend when it arrives, Helen xxxxx
