Cinnamon Apple Breakfast Scones

Scones are one of the easiest baked goods to make. Even if you don’t consider yourself a baker, you can make these! There’s no letting the dough rise or rest, there’s no changing the oven temperature – just a simple batter into the oven, and you’ve got yourself a delicious breakfast snack.

After going apple picking over Thanksgiving, I was OVERLOADED with apples! There’s only so many that a girl can snack on  before needing a change! Although I could have gone with the traditional apple pie, or even apple sauce, I wanted to try something a little different. I came across an apple cinnamon scone a few weeks ago in a coffee shop, and thought why not recreate that?

Read on for our grain packed cinnamon apple breakfast scones.

RECIPE

Yield: 8 scones

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sized apple – peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 c (1 stick) of butter, cold
  • 1/2 c milk (or 3:1 measurements of oil and water if you are dairy free)

Cinnamon Glaze

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tbsp milk

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients (flour, oatmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, and spices).
  3. Cut in the butter using a pastry cutter or two forks (use the back side). The mixture should be thick and crumbly.
  4. Add milk and continue to mix.
  5. Finally, fold in the apple pieces.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, turn out the dough and form two discs, roughly 1 inch thick. Cut each disc into 4 triangles.
  7. Place triangles on a greased baking sheet and bake for 20 – 23 minutes, until the bases are golden brown.
  8. Remove from the oven and place on cooling rack. While scones are cooling, prepare the glaze by mixing powdered sugar, cinnamon, and milk.
  9. Once scones have cooled completely, drizzle the glaze over top and let harden.
  10. Try to eat just one at a time! Enjoy!
