What a delicious way to eat your whole grains! Scones are an all time favorite here. It was nice to find a slightly healthier way to make them! There truly is not much in these that are bad for you, aside from the butter. In reality there is less than a tablespoon per each scone, which is about 9 grams of fat.
- 1 1/2 c organic stone ground whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 c organic all purpose flour
- 1 T baking powder
- 1 t salt
- 1/3 c cold butter
- 1/3 c finely diced pecans
- 2/3 c oat milk, or any milk
- 2 T organic pure maple syrup
- 1 t maple extract
- 1 1/2 c powdered sugar
- 1/4 t maple extract
- 1/2 T maple syrup
- 3 T oat milk
- dash salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Add all the dry ingredients in to a bowl and mix together.
This next step I am going to share the best butter hack ever. When making pastries the hardest part is getting the butter mixed in just right. With this hack all you do with the cold butter is grate it with a cheese grater over the flour, mixing every two tablespoons.
Add the milk, maple syrup, pecans and maple extract, mixing with a wooden spoon. It will feel a little dry.
Remove from bowl and form into a flat circle around 1- 1/2 inches high, divide into 6 pieces.
Place in the oven for 13-15 minutes, until light brown.
Mix all the ingredients for the glaze in a bowl. Wait until scones have cooled before icing.
