In the fall season, one must have something with either pumpkin or apples right? Well, I wanted to step away from the pumpkin fad that is going all around the restaurants as of late and return to the ever popular fall apple. We love scones in our household since we make them one day and freeze the rest for morning when we don’t want to get out of bed early. These are a perfect blend of body warming cinnamon and sweet fall apples to make you want to take a nice fall walk outside while enjoying the color changing leaves. Or better yet, why not make scones, wrap in a kitchen towel and take along your coffee for a nice walk and then a late picnic breakfast. Perfect!

  • 1 ½ c all-purpose flour
  • ½ c whole wheat flour (or use more all-purpose flour)
  • 2 medium apples, cored and diced
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • 1/2 c vegan butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 c vegan approved non-dairy milk (I used almond milk)
  • Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. (Note: I like to put my apple pieces in the flour mixture before the wet ingredients, it prevents the apple pieces from clumping.)
  • Shape the dough into a circle on a cutting board. Slice like a pizza into triangles.
  • Place on a lightly sprayed baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes.
  • Slightly cool before serving as the apples inside do get much more warm than the scone dough. If serving to children, please let these cool completely before serving them.
  • Note 1: You can de-skin the apples but I prefer to keep that added nutrition in the recipe. It will work either way, use your personal preference.
  • Note 2: You can sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on the top before baking if you want a little extra flavor and sugar.

Just a view of what we see now when then sunrises and sets. There are always gorgeous colors all around the lake.
