Delicious Scone Recipe

I know I have been behind with blog updates, this is partly due to lack of topic ideas and partly due to busyness with other happenings. For now, here is a quick recipe that would be fantastic for breakfast tomorrow or for a Sunday brunch. I just made it last night, I will try and put some pics up soon!


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 2/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 6 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup (I only used 1/3c, just because there is a ton of sugar in the dried cranberries and OJ)
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • zest from 2 oranges


Preheat oven to 425 degrees.In a large bowl, combine the flour, wheat flour, baking powder and salt. Add the cranberries and walnuts and set aside.

In a separate bowl, combine the oil, maple syrup, orange juice and orange zest. Combine with the dry ingredients to form a thick dough. (My dough was really dry and crumbly, so I added a tbls of water to moisten it up a bit).

Spoon by large tablespoons onto a cookie sheet and bake for about 12 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.

  1. Danielle, Thank you for the wonderful scones! I have to admit, I ate them all. Your mom just brought the recipe over, so I can make them for the rest of my family.

    • That’s so great! I am happy to hear that you enjoyed them. Sometimes, it’s okay not to share 🙂

      I also have a really great and simple chocolate truffle recipe on here that you should try out. Just be careful, they are highly addictive!
