Berry fruit scones, with butter and a cup of tea.

Better For You Scones

Personally, I’m not a big breakfast person. If I do have breakfast, I grab something from a deli or a quick snack from home that I can eat on the go. Everyone is different and it’s important to know your own hunger.

If you’re always on the go like me, whip up a batch of these scones on Sunday and save them for a quick breakfast during the week. It could be just the thing you need to tide you over and keep you from overeating at your next meal.


– 2 cups oat flour
– 1/4 cup plus 3 tbsp. raw sugar
– 1 tsp. baking powder
– 1/2 tsp. salt
– 4 tbsp. vegetable shortening
– 1 mashed banana
– 1/2 cup soy or almond milk
– 1 1/2 tsps vanilla extract
– Blueberries (optional for moist scones)


Mix in bowl. Roll out to 1-inch thickness; cut with biscuit cutter. Sprinkle lightly with raw sugar, and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, turning pan halfway through cook time.
