When I want a little sweet treat I make smoothies.

My base is always frozen banana + milk + oats then do one of these:

Cinnamon + vanilla

Pumpkin + pumpkin spice+ brown sugar

Strawberries/blue berries

Cost like under a dollar to make a good cup and they are pretty filling.

    I’m gonna get you the proper measurements etc. tomorrow because it’s very late here but the ingredients are:

    400g wholemeal flour

    White plain flour, seived (my own preference is about 1/4 but you let your mouth decide from experience)

    Baking soda

    Pinch of salt

    Buttermilk until it’s fairly mushy

    Honestly you just lump it all together. Make a circular mound out of it. Criss cross with a knife and lob it in the oven on a floured baking tray at 180C for fan.

    I’ll get you a proper recipe in the morning or poke me if I forget. It’s hard to do wrong and I’m not a good baker.

        Here’s a decent one. I was pretty close. :D

        I would tend to do 400 / 100 brown to white, no wheatgerm as I said but I do like it it a bit more dense. Higher white flour ratio will have it slightly less dense so up to yourself. It’s technically possible to do with normal milk and baking powder (instead of buttermilk / baking soda) but I would always go with the buttermilk and soda myself.

        I also frequently use that recipe and just roll it out and cut scones out of it with a glass or large cutter. They cook faster for hungry kids and have more crust (which I like).

        Interested to hear if you do give it a whirl. :)

        edit: I had a quick look at your post history and see you’re vegan. Baking powder (probably 2tsp I imagine for the acid + base instead of 1 for just the base when using baking soda) with oatmilk I would imagine would be totally fine. I’m not sure if there are any acidic vegan milks that would be the equivalent of the buttermilk?

        In a pinch I have used cows milk, baking soda and a small amount of vinegar or even lemon juice in the milk for raising. Good luck!

          Ok I’m vegan so I’ll have to substitute a bit but that’s fine, I can make it work! Thanks.
