Yet another new scone recipe that I've come up with. We like these scones because they're hearty, healthy, tasty, and hold you to lunch! I hope you enjoy these as much as we do. These scones are not overly sweet, so if you like your scones sweet, you may wish to add more brown sugar.

The BEST EVER! Beats the full fat butter scones in a heart beat! I've been making these scones for more than a year for playgroups & teachers, not to mention my family who scarfs these down. Plus the recipe is so versatile. I've substituted cranberries, for different types of berries, and as of yesterday I made it w/ chocolate chips & replaced the zest w/ 1 tsp of cinamon. It was the hit of the brunch. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Will be with me for ever!
