I love spicy food.  Combine that with cheese and I’m all in.   That makes my Cheesy Chive & Cayenne Scones a perfect option for breakfast, snack, lunch or with dinner.  These scones are great with just butter, and were wonderful with my chicken tortellini soup.

Scones are really pretty easy to make too.  Just don’t over mix them and make sure that your butter is cold.  I start by combining the flour with the salt, pepper, baking powder, sugar and cayenne pepper.  Then I use a box grater to grate over the cold butter.  Then mix together gently to cover the butter with the flour.  After that’s done, mix in the cheese and chives.

Then stir in the milk and combine until just holding together.  I have used cashew or almond milk combined with vinegar here when I’m out of cow’s milk (we just don’t use cow’s milk that much in my house) and it works well.

Finally, just turn the dough out onto a lightly floured counter and press into an circle about eight inches wide.  Cut into six wedges and place on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat.  Brush with some buttermilk and bake for about twenty to twenty-five minutes or until done.  Enjoy!

Fluffy, cheesy biscuits with chives and a hint of heat from cayenne pepper.

Course: Breakfast
Servings: 6
Author: pipercooks
Ingredients
  • 210 grams all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ¾ teaspoons sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne
  • 57 grams (4 tablespoons) butter, cold
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk, (cashew or almond milk plus vinegar is fine), plus about a tablespoon to brush on top
  • 1 tablespoon dried chives
  • ¾ cups grated cheddar cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). (I also line my baking sheet with a silicone liner)
  2. Mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, pepper and cayenne.
  3. Grate in the cold butter and mix so it’s all covered in flour. Add the cheese and chives.
  4. Add milk, starting with half of the amount and mix together with a fork or your hands until it comes together in a ball. It shouldn’t be sticky, should just come together. Don’t over mix. Add more flour, a little at a time if you need to.
  5. Place ball on floured counter, flatten into about an 8-inch round.
  6. Cut like a pizza or pie, into 6 wedges.
  7. Place on baking sheet, brush with a bit of milk and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until done.
Recipe Notes
  • I used half spelt flour and half all-purpose flour for the scones in the photos.

Avocado Toast with Feta Cheese and Balsamic Glaze

Avocado Toast

Avocado Toast - Filling avocado toast recipe with chili paste, feta cheese, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and balsamic glaze.

*This post contains affiliate links

Hi guys. Let’s talk breakfast! What’s your favorite? Pancakes? Toast? Eggs? Cereal? Yogurt and Granola? Leftover pizza? And do you eat something different every day? Or can you get into obsessive territory like me? I’ve been eating this avocado toast for months. Before that, it was peanut butter toast with fried eggs & sriracha on top, and before that my Sweet Potato Skillet.

This Avocado Toast is so good.  It’s a bit spicy (you can dial it down or leave it out if you like), a bit sweet and a bit salty. I love it. It’s also full of healthy fats and keeps me full for a couple of hours, which is especially good on tougher workout days, because I can get by with just a protein smoothie after exercising and feel great until dinner.

 

Avocado Toast - Filling avocado toast recipe with chili paste, feta cheese, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and balsamic glaze.

I load my avocado toast up. There are 10 ingredients here (including salt and pepper). But, you don’t have to use them all if you don’t want to. If you don’t like feta, skip it. Don’t have both seeds? Use whatever one you like. But this way is my favorite.

I toast my bread until it’s really crunchy. In a bowl I mix a good squeeze of lime juice and a teaspoon or two of chili paste (Sambal Oelek – I use this one by Huy Fong) in with my mashed avocado. Then I spread that on the toast and crack fresh salt and pepper over.  Next, I sprinkle on the pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. Finally, I crumble on some feta cheese and drizzle the whole thing with balsamic glaze. Perfection.  Try it out if you’re an avocado lover!  Pin it for later!

MAPLE CINNAMON SPICED GRANOLA

Maple Cinnamon Spiced Granola

 

Maple Cinnamon Spiced Granola Recipe - PiperCooks – Easy homemade granola with cinnamon, maple syrup and maple extract. Use whichever nuts you prefer. Use your healthy granola in a cute parfait with Greek yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup.

 

Granola is such a wonderful thing to make at home, for a couple of good reasons.

  1. It’s easy.  Just mix it and bake it.
  2. You can use any flavors you can think of pretty much. (Vanilla, peanut butter, chocolate, cinnamon etc)
  3. It’s easy to make it healthier than store bought versions.  You can use little sweetener, and make that sweetener natural like honey and maple syrup.

The smell of homemade granola as it’s baking is also so nice.  Just watch carefully in the last few minutes so it doesn’t burn.

To make this maple cinnamon granola, just  mix together the dry ingredients and then combine with the melted butter and maple syrup.  Stir and then bake.  Bake for about 30 minutes, stirring once of twice.  I like to bake mine a little bit longer sometimes, just be very careful, like I said, to watch for burning.  Also, use whatever oats you like.  I prefer half large flake oats (in my Oatmeal Raisin Cookies too) because I like their texture.
