Healthified rustic scones with dried figs and honey. No white sugar.

Tuesday I didn’t have a single plan for this weekend. By Thursday the weekend was fully booking. Whoah – what happened? But luckily every single plan this weekend is a plan I love.

Yesterday six of my friends and I met for a fun and cozy night. I love that group of people. We actually “started” the group when we did the exchange with the high school in Melrose. So that exchange did not only bring new friends from Boston. It actually also brought us students from Denmark closer together. Wonderful! We didn’t do much yesterday actually. We talked and went for a pizza. And laughed. That us pretty much it. I love such simple yet incredibly enjoyable nights.

Right now I’m on my way to Copenhagen (we live 20mins by train from the centre). I’m gonna meet a great friend of mine, and later I’m going to Tivoli with my family. Tivoli just opened for Christmas. Every Christmas the whole park is covered with the most beautiful decorations. Looking forward to seeing what they did this year!

A fully booked weekend and a ton of homework can – however – not keep me from baking. This morning I baked scones for breakfast (and made a lovely rustic citrus and apple fruit salad). I thought that after one week of not eating bread (except for yesterday’s pizza and cake) it’d be ok with scones on a Saturday (; I generally eat healthy, but I also make space for treats from time to time.

These scones are not the “worst” however. I simply don’t get why a lot if recipes have cream and a ton of sugar in them. You don’t need that at all (: These scones are sweet and dense – with less butter (but still with butter) and no white sugar. Oh, and I subbed oatmeal for a bit if the flour. That makes the scones deliciously dense. Yum!
I hope you like them.
Have a perfect weekend everyone!

    These look amazing, and I love how you made them healthier! They sound every bite as delish as the traditional sugar and butter laden version. Oh well, even better, with the lovely addition of oats ;)
