Blueberry & Dark Chocolate Oat Scones

It is a while since I did a breakfast recipe and this is a really good one, even if I do say myself. I have to be honest and say that the idea for this recipe came from Vegetarian Times, I just adjusted it a bit to make it the way I like it! The combination of blueberries, dark chocolate and oats make for a really tasty and filling breakfast.

I was getting the images and nutrition for this recipe together over the weekend along with a number of other recipes because I will be having a busy time over the next 2 weeks. At the moment I have decorating our room that had a flood and so squeezing my posts in around it, but on the plus side I will have a yoga room once it is done.

Then from Saturday I will be doing my Yoga Sport Science immersion which is going to keep me really busy. Plus around all of that I am trying to get all my marketing for my yoga business together, study for my course and find and athlete to work with. It is completely crazy but I am loving it at the moment. On the topic of marketing I actually decided on the colours for my branding and my logo is below, I would love to know your thoughts.

So for my blog posts I am going to try and prepare a few over this week so I can just publish them in the week while I am away, it might mean there is just one or two that week but I guess it is better than nothing. I suppose I should get back to the recipe!

This is a really quick and easy recipe and it would be a great one to make on a sunday morning and then you can eat what is left over the following week giving you an extra bonus, just keep it in a sealed container in the fridge and it will be fine for a week. I had mine with vegan blueberry yoghurt which went perfectly, my mum grabbed some oat cream out of the cupboard and had it as more of a dessert but each to their own!

function printContent(id){
str=document.getElementById(id).innerHTML
newwin=window.open(”,’printwin’,’left=100,top=100,width=822,height=600′)
newwin.document.write(‘nn’)
newwin.document.write(‘Print Pagen’)
newwin.document.write(‘n’)
newwin.document.write(‘n’)
newwin.document.write(‘function chkstate(){n’)
newwin.document.write(‘if(document.readyState==”complete”){n’)
newwin.document.write(‘window.close()n’)
newwin.document.write(‘}n’)
newwin.document.write(‘else{n’)
newwin.document.write(‘setTimeout(“chkstate()”,2000)n’)
newwin.document.write(‘}n’)
newwin.document.write(‘}n’)
newwin.document.write(‘function print_win(){n’)
newwin.document.write(‘window.print();n’)
newwin.document.write(‘chkstate();n’)
newwin.document.write(‘}n’)
newwin.document.write(‘$(document).ready(function(){ $(“iframe”).remove();}) n’)
newwin.document.write(‘$(document).ready(function(){ $(“#contactInfo”).remove();}) n’)
newwin.document.write(‘n’)
newwin.document.write(‘n’)
newwin.document.write(‘n’)
newwin.document.write(str)
newwin.document.write(‘n’)
newwin.document.write(‘n’)
newwin.document.close()
}
