Blueberry Lime Whole Wheat Scones are tender and sweet while still made with whole wheat and no refined sugars. Healthy enough for breakfast, delicious enough for dessert.
Even when you forgo refined ingredients, like white flour and sugar, a breakfast like Blueberry Lime Whole Wheat Scones still feels a little decadent. In high school, when I was way cooler in my head than in real life, my friends and I always ordered scones from the college coffee shop. I thought they were fancy, like pastry chef fancy. Coffee – loaded with milk and sugar because I would have choked on it without the additions – and a scone as a teenager. How do you get any cooler while hanging out at a coffee shop that was located in the tiny room on top of a off-campus bookstore. All we needed was a poetry reading and some finger snapping and we could have been mistaken for college students. (So we thought.)
However, as an adult, I realize the scone is more rustic than pastry chef. I’ll take it. Rustic means they are easier to put in the oven than biscuits and take less than 10 minutes of prep time – including the time it takes me to dig the whole wheat flour out of the freezer. There is no rolling pin involved and I don’t even use my food processor to cut in the butter. If you grate the frozen butter on your box grater, it works just great. (My box grater fits in my dishwasher much easier than my food processor!)
The lime zest in the dough does not give the scones a strong lime flavor but goes great with the sauce! I’m sure lemon would work well too! Want something crazy good? Whisk together some softened cream cheese, lime juice and a little maple syrup and drizzle it over these Blueberry Lime Whole Wheat Scones. It is so good!!
