Gluten free quinoa & buckwheat scones with dried cranberries & honey

The other day we counted how many weeks we have left of high school. Or rather, how many weeks there are until the reading period and exams. Seven. Whoah… that’s not much. It is funny – I feel so damn ambivalent about leaving high school. On one hand I really don’t want to say goodbye to all my lovely classmates – but on the other I am so God damn tired of school. Like really. We all are. Come on summer vacation…

Forleden dag talte vi hvor mange uger, der er tilbage af gymnasiet. Eller rettere hvor lang tid der er til læsefiren. Syv. Bare små syv uger. Wow. Det er sjovt – jeg har det så utroligt ambivalent ved at skulle gå ud af gymnasiet. På den ene side vil jeg virkelig ikke væk fra alle mine søde klassekamerater og medfølgende sjove hverdagshistorier – på den anden side er jeg så helt utrolig skoletræt. Sådan virkelig meget. Kom nu studentertid….

Okay, my longing for summer vacation is completely self-inflicted. Because the other day (while procrastinating from school work, hrm hrmmm…) I started looking through photos and posts from last summer – for instance this post about my lovely trip to beautiful London. It made me miss vacation and London so much AND it reminded me of a super delicious quinoa scone I got. Silly, I know – I hope I am not the only weirdo who remembers food from trips (:

Okay, mit savn efter ferie er ret selvforskyld. For her den anden fag begyndte jeg – i en bølge af overspringshandlinger – at kigge på billeder og posts fra sidste sommer. Jeg kom forbi den her post om en skøn tur til dejlige London, jeg havde sidst sommer. Det fik mig til at savne London og ferie generelt OG det mindede mig om en skøn quinoa scone, jeg fik. Haha, jeg ved det er undelrigt – jeg håber ikke jeg er den eneste weirdo, der på den måde husker mad (:

THAT gave me the idea of these scones. They are nothing like the one I got in London (that one was with ordinary flour and whole quinoa), but they are definitely just as good. AND they are gluten free. I am really quite pleased with them – I hope you like them.

(Okay, okay… I have to admit it… these are purely a product of me procrastinating like a queen… Haha, I am so tired of school (: )

Have a lovely weekend!

DET gav mig ideen til de her scones. De er ikke som den, jeg fik i London (som var med almindelig mel og hel quinoa), men mindst lige så lækker. OG de er glutenfrie. Jeg håber, I synes m dem.

(Okay, okay… så indrømmer jeg det… De er også et produkt af min utroligt gode evne til at lave overspringshandlinger… For så skoletræt er jeg nemlig (: )

  1. I have the same feeling about leaving high school too! Especially since I have no idea what will happen this fall… Anyway, these scones look amazing and I love quinoa and buckwheat flour. Also love that you added dried cranberries! :)

    • Yes, it is so weird. I am planning on taking a gap year, but I have so many different things I want to do during that year, and I haven’t settled on anything yet :) Looking forward to hearing what you are going to do!
