Part of the bake off last week was also a bake sale to help raise money for Comic Relief, and someone had made these wonderful Slimming World Potato Scones. They were delicious and I immediately posted on our Intranet asking for the recipe and I got it and now I am sharing this with you.
Funnily enough I do Slimming World to lose weight, but I am really struggling. When I rejoined a couple of months ago I was at the heaviest I have ever been, and I looked through some old Facebook photos and there I was in a dress I know I cannot fit in and looking skinnier. I want to get back to that.
I lost a lot of weight at uni, I ate pretty healthy, didn’t snack as much and what I think the key thing was; I walked everywhere. I mean everywhere. Campus was right in the city centre so there was no need to actually drive, get a taxi or a bus, anything. Now I live at home with the parents, who feed me, and I have to get a bus in to work everyday.
Basically I need to get fit!
Anyway, scone recipe!
Take all the ingredients and mix them in a bowl and then form into scone like shapes. It should make about 6 scones. Bake in the oven at 160 degrees for about half an hour and then you get these.
The best bit? They are free on SW and could easily be adapted to include superfree ingredients as well!
- 3 eggs
- 1 pack of cheese and onion smash (instant potato!)
- One tub of be good to yourself cottage cheese with chives (Sainsbury’s) but any equivalent that is also free on SW
- Add some chilli, paprika, salt, pepper, anything else you like to taste.
- Real cheese to put on top (optional but tasty!)
