When we think of scones, we often think of sweet indulgence. But let’s not overlook the savory side of scones. Enter bruschetta scones – a delightful marriage of Italian flavors with the quintessentially British pastry. Whether you’re making them for brunch, afternoon tea or a special occasion, they are simply irresistible.

While it’s no surprise these are delicious, their nutritional value may surprise you. Packed with nutrient rich ingredients, such as spinach, tomatoes and pine nuts, they offer a variety of health benefits. Tomatoes support heart and brain health and help provide energy, while pine nuts are packed with protein and help reduce the risk of diabetes. Meanwhile, spinach provides essential vitamins and minerals to support immune function and digestive health.
