"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.

"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."
"OK, I wasn't sure what to expect with this recipe because I am not a huge fan of tahini but I had some in the pantry that needed used up. I have, however, found a new love for scones which I would have never tried if it weren't for Loula making them constantly and tempting me with her delish photos. So. . . the verdict on this recipe??? FABULOUS!!!! LOVE IT!!! I did add 2 additional Tbsp of sugar, as I have a sweet tooth. These are so wonderful. Thanks for sharing!!!

"Loved these! I've made them twice with tahini and sunflower seeds, both of which I love! :) So I don't see myself trying the other variations. Wonderfully flavoursome: great for weekday breakfast-on-the-run and for an absolutely anytime snack. Thank you, Lalaloula, for sharing another super recipe! Made for PRMR!"
"This recipe combines two of my favorites scones and nuts. Made two batches of these one as written with Tahiti and one with almond butter as suggested as an alternative to Tahiti. These have a wonderful rich flavor from the nut butter. These scones have such flavor that you could eat them for breakfast, as a snack after your work out, or even as a side to soup or salad. Boy these are so good and vestal that I we will try freezing them so that we can grab and go. What a great recipe. Thanks for the post."
