I am so excited to share with you today’s recipe! The new Lord of the Rings: the Rings of Power TV series is finally here, and I thought it was a perfect opportunity to make some Lembas bread.
The lord of the rings has been really important to me ever since I was little. We are constantly rewatching it in the house (while quoting every line of course), we have maps and artwork, we even had a subtly Lord of the Rings themed wedding. Over the years I have created a bunch of recipes inspired by the films, and I can’t wait to share them with you.
This is my take on Lembas bread, or elvish way bread. Legolas says; “One small bite is enough to fill the stomach of a grown man”. I’ll be honest with you though, you will not be stopping at just one bite with these. They will be adored and devoured.
I made rosemary, almond, and honey scones, and they are absolutely delicious. During the making of this post and video, a lot of batches of these scones were made since they kept getting eaten too quickly!
These scones are warm, earthy, have an amazing unique flavour, and I honestly feel that they belong in middle earth! I like topping the scone with a generous drizzle of honey on top and wow! We just can’t get enough. If Lembas bread from Lothlorien is anything like this, it’s no wonder Merry and Pippin ate so many right away!
Scones are really simple to make, and once you figure out the perfect base, they are very adaptable. I love how versatile they are so I am a big fan of testing out fun, and interesting flavour combinations this way.
I hope you test out these scones, they make for a perfect Breakfast, Second Breakfast, Ellevensies or Afternoon Tea!

Oh… and It’s all gluten free!
Do you think this would be ok without the egg?
I havent tried it but I would imagine you could probably use an egg substitute. There are some good ones out there but I wouldn’t suggest leaving the egg out entirely! Let me know what you try please.
I tried it with 1 tbsp water and 1tbsp olive oil. It came out great! just needed a bit of extra time in the freezer!
That’s awesome! Thanks for letting me know. One of the things I love about scones (or lembas bread) is how friendly and adjustable the batter is <3
