‘A few years back, I told myself that I deserved a real breakfast every morning. Whether that’s sitting on my back doorstep, enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the early sun break through my beloved mimosa tree, or hurriedly eating a delicious bowl of granola before rushing out of the door; somehow breakfast for me is setting out my intention of how I want the day to be.’ Anna Jones, cook, food writer and stylist

I was first welcomed into Anna Jones’ beautiful east London home for a cup of tea when Spoon Cereals was at its humble beginnings. At the time, Anna was making waves with her first cookbook, A Modern Way to Eat (HarperCollins, 2014), which is our go-to cookbook when we crave a healthy veggie meal.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

Wet ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 lemons
125ml olive oil
4 tablespoons natural yoghurt
1 orange, zested

Dry ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
165g white spelt flour
125g soft light brown or coconut sugar
75g oats
40g millet flakes, plus extra to top
40g unsweetened desiccated coconut, plus extra, to top

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
  2. Zest both lemons and juice one. Combine the olive oil, yoghurt, lemon juice, half the lemon zest and the orange zest in a bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until you have a soft, doughy consistency. If it’s too dry, add a little more yoghurt.
  4. Roll the dough into 20 evenly sized balls, then place on the prepared baking sheet and press down lightly to flatten. Sprinkle with the extra millet flakes and coconut, and the remaining lemon zest.
  5. Bake for 10–15 minutes, until golden. The biscuits will be soft when they come out, but will firm up as they cool.
