    Lalaloula's Note:

    These savoury scones use tahini in place of butter, which makes them quite healthy and also gives them a unique taste. They do have a slight sweetness and a lovely crunch from (roasted) sunflower seeds. Very yummy! You could use peanut butter and peanuts or cashew butter and cashews or almond butter and almonds, too. Whatever floats your boat. :)

      Oh my Loula these are just fabulous! Definitely not the kind of flavors I was expecting in a scone, these weren't as sweet as I thought they'd be even though I used vanilla soymilk in place of milk. I used 1 cup regular flour and 3/4 cup wheat flour, and threw in some walnuts since I don't care for sunflower seeds. Would definitely make again though maybe a little sweeter next time. Made as a recipenap for Veggie Swap 22.

      These are yummy scones! I really am enjoying their healthfulness for snacks and breakfast (excellent with fruit salad!). They have quite a savory flavor and a firm but crumbly texture. I enjoyed dressing up some of my batch with a dab of berry jam, before baking. I'd love to try them with other nut butters. Thanks for posting!

      I was looking for a recipe to use up some tahini, and came across this delicious recipe. I plan to add it to my repertoire of scones. Of note, I increased the sugar to 4 tablespoons, and used slivered almonds. Thanks so much.
