I’ve been craving scones and baked things. Sadly they’re not great for weightwatchers points. Today I stumbled upon cheese gridle scones on the excellent food blog tamarindandthyme. I decided to have a go a making something which ticked all the boxes for me, but cost me less points, but removing the cheese and butter.

You will need

  • 120g of self raising flour
  • Enough Fage Zero to make a loose dough (about a handful)
  • A good pinch of dried mixed herbs
  • A pinch of salt
  • A couple of heaped teaspoons of nutritional yeast
  • A good grind of black pepper
  • A little butter to serve
  • Flake salt to serve


  1. Mix flour, salt, black pepper, herbs, nutritional yeast and Fage to a soft dough
  2. Avoid handling too much but roll out to toughly 1cm thick then drop it into a non-stick pan
  3. Cook on a low heat for a good 5+ minutes on both sides
  4. Serve with a very thin slice of butter and a pinch of flaky salt


Mine were justa little too thick and needed cooking longer to cook all the way though, they were however, excellent with a cup of tea., a little like a potato scone.
