Cinnamon Raisin Scones/Quick Bread

Cinnamon Raisin Scones/Quick Bread

This recipe provides healthy cinnamon raisin scones/quick bread which are both gluten free and yeast free. Ken had a need for this when he was temporarily on a yeast free diet. It adapts Bob's Red Mill Cinnamon Raisin Bread Mix to use baking powder instead of yeast. We find the bread is lighter and more scone-like when made with baking powder.

  • In a separate container mix the water with the flaxseed and put aside. Stir occasionally and leave for five minutes or so until it seeds absorb the water and become somewhat gelatinous.
  • Place the breadmix in a large mixing bowl. Remove the package of yeast that comes with the package and put it aside for some other use.
