Blueberry Lemon Scones

Who doesn’t like a good scone recipe? Especially if it’s a healthy scone recipe, right?! This recipe came to life when I had a pint of blueberries just sitting in my refrigerator. I bought the blueberries in hopes that Mr. Cason {our son} would eat them. But it seems that right now he would rather feed them to our dog than put them in his mouth. So, what’s a mom to do with a pint of blueberries her son won’t eat? Well, you could make blueberry pancakes {typical} or blueberry muffins {also typical}. Or, you could be super fun and create a yummy Blueberry Lemon Scone with a Lemon Glaze!!! Doesn’t that just sound more appetizing then plain old blueberry pancakes? :) Well, believe me, these Blueberry Lemon Scones are rockin’ and are the perfect “grab and go” breakfast! But let me warn you, you may want to make a double batch because these things will be gone fast! :)

To get started, Preheat the oven to 400º. In a bowl, combine the 1 cup of whole wheat flour, 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.
