Whole Wheat Apple Scones

Whole Wheat Apple Scones

Made with whole wheat flour and rolled oats, these whole grain cream scones are specked with fresh apples tossed in honey and cinnamon. Only lightly sweet, they are perfect topped with a slather of apple butter or just eaten plain alongside a warm cup of tea or cider. All the spiced apple flavors you love from apple pie in a light, simple scone. In order to get a little more of that apple pie flavor, I tossed the diced apples with honey and cinnamon. This helps to sweeten up the apples and give a little extra burst of flavor. The final touch is to brush the scones with a honey/cream glaze. This imparts a final bit of sweetness and gives the scones a nice glossy finish. Light, spicy and infinitely snack-able, these scones are a perfect accompaniment to fall! YIELD: 9-10 scones
