Your coffee's ideal partner is a warm, fresh scone. Straight from the oven, these blueberry scones are deliciously familiar, and the combination of antioxidant-rich blueberries with the fiber, protein and omegas in Qi'a means this is no ordinary snack. 

Ingredients: 

 

  • 1 & 1/2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup Qi’a Cranberry-Vanilla Cereal
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 cup hemp milk mixed with 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup oil or melted unsalted butter
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries (or peeled chopped apples or pears)
  • Additional Qi’a Cranberry-Vanilla Cereal
  • Additional sugar
Directions: 

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, Qi’a, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk and oil. Make a well in the dry ingredients, pour the wet mixture into the dry and mix together with a wooden spoon or spatula, stirring with as few strokes as possible. Lightly fold in the blueberries or chopped fruit.
  4. Scoop the batter on to parchment lined baking sheets, making 12 scones total.
  5. Sprinkle with additional Qi’a and additional sugar. About a teaspoon of each per scone.
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until tops are lightly browned.
