Is There a Diet Specifically Targeted at Hypertension?
Brandied Cherry Scones
A diet high in fiber is protective against heart disease. Get the right amount: the average American gets about 10 grams of fiber per day, while the USDA Dietary Guidelines recommends 20 to 25 grams per day. Each of these scones contains over 7 grams of fiber.
Sift flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder together in a medium bowl.
Combine tofu, oil, lemon juice, vanilla, and maple syrup in a blender until smooth. Add blended ingredients, flaxseeds, cherries, and brandy to flour mixture; stir gently until just mixed.
Using a floured rolling pin and cutting board, roll dough out into a circle 3/4-inch (2cm) thick. Slice dough into 8 wedges. Place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and bake 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Servings: 8 scones
