Apple and Granola Scones

READY IN: 35mins




  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  • Add the butter to the flour mixture and rub it in with your fingertips, working until mixture is sandy and the butter seems fairly evenly distributed, with a few larger bits, but none larger than a pea.
  • Stir in 1/2 cup buttermilk (reserving the rest), the apple and the granola. Add the remaining buttermilk 1 tbsp at a time until the dough comes together into a ball. It should not be too sticky, nor should it be floury. Add back an additional tablespoon of flour if your dough becomes too wet.
  • Divide ball into two equal discs about 1-inch thick and cut each disc into quarters. Place triangular scones on a parchment-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with brown sugar.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes at 400F until light golden brown. The bottoms should be browned.
  • Cool on a wire rack for at least 5-10 minutes before serving. Scones can be eaten warm or at room temperature.
