Blueberry and Coconut Rock Cakes

Rock cakes are a very British picnic tradition – hence the name, sturdy when transported! They are in-between a biscuit/scone/cake consistency and taste, and are a great pick me up with a strong cup of tea. I have used blueberries in this recipe to replace the high-sugar dried fruits which are normally used, however, feel free to replace with any other yummy berry.

Coincidently this ‘treat’ is also guilt free as not only is it fructose free, it is also low carbohydrate (‘Paleo’) due to the coconut flour and Gluten Free!
