It's hard to resist a freshly-baked scone and these fibre-rich, cinnamon-spiced treats are as good as it gets. Super-quick to make, they’re deliciously crumbly on the outside and soft on the inside – the perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea.

Method
  1. Preheat oven to 220ºC/Fan 200ºC.
  2. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon together in a bowl.
  3. Cut the reduced-fat spread into small pieces and add to the dry ingredients; then mix well.
  4. Add the oats, raisins, egg and most of the milk – leaving a small amount for glazing – and mix well.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 2cm thickness.
  6. Using a 6cm diameter cutter, cut out 8 scones.
  7. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Place the scones onto the baking paper – evenly spaced – and lightly brush with the remaining milk.
  8. Bake for 10–12 minutes, until golden and crispy.
Instead of clotted cream with jam, serve with slices of strawberry and fat-free Greek yoghurt or reduced-fat creme fraiche
