I love scones... they are something that can be eaten at anytime. You can have them at breakfast, morning or afternoon coffee or tea, evening snack or you can grab one for that on-the-go pick me up. The same goes for granola, so when I came across this recipe from Michael Ann of The Big Green Bowl for her granola scones, I just knew that I had to make some.
I had some granola samples from Gypsy Girl Granola that I had won before Christmas from Hun What's for Dinner 12 days of giveaway that I knew would just be perfect for these scones and they were.
So, yesterday morning I was up bright and early that seems to happen quite frequently for me and I decided that this would be a great morning to make these. Hubby can grab one on his way out the door as we head out for church. He didn't but he did have one with his smoothie this morning and the only thing he said was that they needed more fruit.. So next time I make them, I will be adding double the amount of dried fruit.

1/3 cup whole wheat flour

1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves

1/4 cup local honey
1/3 cup milk ( I used egg nog)

1/2 cup mixed dried fruit (I used Welch's dried fruit and will be adding more next time I make these)
Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Lightly butter a baking sheet, I used a baking mat so didn't butter.
Mix flours, baking powder, nutmeg cloves and salt in a bowl. Add chilled butter that is grated as you add. Stir frequently. In separate bowl add honey, milk and eggs and mix. Add to flour mixture. Add granola and dried fruit and mix well using your hands or a spoon.
Pat mixture into an 8 inch, using a pizza cutter or knife cut into 8 wedges. Bake at 375 F for 20-25 minutes.
So yummy and thanks Michael Ann for your wonderful recipe. This is going to be a frequent breakfast food in our household.
