Apple Cinnamon Raisin Scones

Apple Cinnamon Raisin Scones
Makes about 12 scones
Takes about 45 minutes

True to form, I will not cook overly sweet pastries for breakfast.  I feel like these are the perfect compromise.  The apples and the raisins sweeten them without having to add a huge amount of sugar.  They are still not health food but they won’t leave you disgusted by what you just ate.  I like eating them for lunch, as well as breakfast, and you can stick them briefly in the toaster to heat for days afterwards.


2 cups white whole wheat flour
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp ground flaxseed
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
½ cup sugar
Pinch salt
1/3 cup soymilk
½ cup apple juice
1 apple, diced (skin still on)
½ cup raisins

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 
2. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix.  Add in the wet ingredients and mix.  Stir in the apples and raisins.
3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or oil.  Use a large spoon to drop 12 clumps of dough onto the baking sheet (depending on the size of your baking sheet, you may need two).  You can use your fingers to make the clumps somewhat triangular if you like your scones that way.
4. Bake for 30 minutes until lightly browned.  Allow the scones to cool before eating.
