Apple Pecan Whole Wheat Scones

What You Need:

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • ½ cup oats, ground in a food processor
  • 2¼ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 egg white, yolk reserved
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 1 medium apple
  • ⅓ cup pecan pieces
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 pinch nutmeg

    How to Make It:

Preheat oven to 400˚ and cover a sheet tray in parchment paper. In a large bowl, sift together all the dry ingredients. Cut in butter (using pastry blender, two knives, hands, or a food processor) until butter is in little pea size pieces. In a smaller bowl, whisk together egg white, 2 tablespoons maple syrup, and buttermilk. Combine with dry ingredients until dough pulls together. Dice apple and toss with cinnamon, nutmeg and pecans. Pat out dough in to a rough 12×6 square. Sprinkle apples over and carefully roll. Squeeze and pat in to a square log. Cut in to 6-8 squares. Place on the sheet tray 1-2 inches apart. Whisk together egg yolk and 1 tablespoon maple syrup; brush over scones. Place tray in oven and bake for 15-18 minutes until scones are golden and firm to the touch.
