Guilt free daily breakfast treat I make these scones weekly! Sometimes I add some cranberries and walnuts to the white raisins plus some orange zest. I've made with lemon zest and dried cherries; dried apricots and flaked (unsweetened) coconut; lots of fresh cinnamon chopped apples and pecans; and tomorrow will be fresh grated ginger chopped crystallized ginger and almonds. The possibilities are endless and they always taste great! Pros: easy adaptable
great scones I've been making these for years! The browned butter is the trick to add flavor without tons of fat and they are just lightly sweetened-perfect with morning latte on a relaxing weekend morning especially for celebrating St Patrick's Day (like today!). I usually use all whole wheat pastry flour and dried cranberries or dried blueberries instead of raisins. Love the orange zest idea; I bet that would combine perfectly with cranberries! Best eaten the same day as they dry out after a couple days. Pros: tasty. lower fat whole grain
Very tasty added orange zest This is a great alternative to higher calorie scones. I added orange zest and replaced about 1/8 cup of the yogurt with orange juice to change it up the second time I made them and it tasted great. Pros: Not much fat Cons: Taste so good I want to eat too many
Lowfat scones that don't taste low fat I've used this delicious scone recipe that looks like any other scone -- and tastes better.-- since I first saw it in the magazine years ago. And I even use all whole wheat for the flour. My guests don't complain. Pros: A favorite family and guest recipe for years. Cons: Are there any?
Great taste --add a titch more liquid if you are at higher altitude--just enough to hold the dough together. love the not-too-sweetness. husband says it has a really nice chewiness. Pros: pretty healthful I would say Cons: A little dry
Great taste but healthier These taste just like the "traditional" scones I've had in the past. Mixed some raisins in with them and served them with jam. Just the perfect breakfast for a sunday morning.
