I am most creative when it comes to breakfast. Coming home from a run, makes eating so much more fun and therefore, it is my favorite meal of the day. With the success I had last week concerning my German Chocolate scones, I decided it was simple enough to make them (scones) on a regular basis.
I might be cheating on the waffles I have started to eat regularly, but a recipe that makes only two scones, is easy to eat and prepare but also makes me feel like more of a baker? I think this will have to be a once a week thing.
There is something I love about the concept of only making two scones. You see, I get tired of the exact same thing for breakfast too many times in a row. Waffles, toast, oats you can make into different things based on what you scoop on top or mix inside. If you make a 12 scone batch of something, that’s what you’re eating for days.
Making two ensures that I have one to see if I like them and a second one for lunch that day if it’s amazingly good, and breakfast the next if I don’t want it immediately. And if it’s bad? Well, that’s what coworker’s are for am I right?
These scones combine my favorite guilty pleasure: white chocolate with a sweet dose of veggies in carrot form. I used maple syrup and applesauce as a sweetener and to keep them moist. No glaze on these is needed guys. Just trust me 🙂
