1/7 Photos of Tahini Sunflower Seed Scones
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. :)

- 1Heat oven to 375°F.

- 4In a separate bowl combine egg and milk and whisk until blended. Pour into tahini flour mixture reserving 1 tbs full for glaze and combine until just blended.
- 5On a floured surface flatten dough using your hands or a rolling pin. Using a glass cut out scones of desired size.
