Whole Wheat Apple Scones

Whole Wheat Apple Scones

(10 servings)    Printable Version
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup cold butter - cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup grated apple (a tart apple like Granny Smith works best)
  • 1/2 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • For Topping:
  • 2 Tablespoons low-fat milk
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Sift the flours, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon salt and nutmeg into a large bowl.

Using your fingers, cut the butter into the dry ingredients, mixing until the mixture resembles coarse sand.

Add the apple, milk and vanilla and mix until just combined and moist.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently just 4 times.

Divide the dough in half and transfer to a baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray. Pat each half of the dough down into a 6-inch circle. Cut each circle into 5 wedges. Brush all wedges with milk and sprinkle evenly with sugar.

Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

With about 175 calories and only 1 gram of fat each, these scones are a delicious, more-healthy substitution for those inevitable apple fritter donut craving we all have.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank gifford for this recipe.

I thought it was great for a whole wheat recipe. Probably could have used a little more apple - so use a large one if you have it. I added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon to the glaze and that turned out good.
