GF Rooibos Scone

The red bush tea a.k.a Rooibos tea from South Africa not only tastes amazing but also is incredibly good for you. It is naturally caffeine free and contains high antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. It is also rich in minerals like calcium, manganese and zinc, which helps your bone health. Flavonoids in rooibos tea are known to relieve spasm, allergies and inflammation and help your digestion and restful sleep. Tea drinkers out there, worried about iron because of tannin in black tea? Rooibos tea actually supports iron absorption in your body unlike most other black tea since it contains less than half the tannins of black tea. The list goes on…improving blood circulation, relieving hypertension and diabetes, preventing premature aging, improving your skin tone. Wow! Are you amazed by this little beauty? I added brewed tea as well as loose tea in this gluten free scone recipe. It is crispy outside and fluffy inside, perfect as a snack with a cuppa. Enjoy x
rooibos sconeIngredients (makes 4 small scones)

3 teabags of vanilla rooibos tea
100g water to brew the tea
2 eggs
2 tbsp raw honey
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp chia seeds
50g almond meal
50g coconut flour

Steep 3 teabags of vanilla rooibos in freshly boiled water and set aside to cool. In a large bowl, place all dry ingredients and combine together. In a separate bowl, lightly beat the eggs and add in the rooibos tea (I added loose tea from one tea bag as well), honey and melted coconut oil. Mix dry and wet ingredients and fold with a spatula until combined. Spoon the batter onto a baking paper and bake in the preheated oven (180) for 15-20 minutes until golden. Take it out of the oven and let it cool on a rack. Enjoy with rooibos tea.
