Easy Coffee Scones with Almond and Raisins: A Healthy and Delicious Breakfast Treat

Coffee Scones

Scones are always on the menu at my house, which if you follow me probably have noticed by now. This morning I created delicious coffee inspired scones offering something unique to bring to your breakfast table or to snack on as a healthy, low sugar and salt-free treat. This easy scone recipe also has almond extract, two tablespoons of molasses to a reduced amount of sugar along with raisins that play off the coffee so both the coffee and almond flavors shine through. Let me share this recipe with you and why you want to make it.

The Advantages of Making These Scones

  • For those dieting, you have the option of reducing the sugar. You can use one-third cup of sugar for a slightly sweeter scone or go with one-fourth cup of sugar that will rely getting more sweetness from the raisins and the molasses.
  • If you’re watching your sodium levels, these tender oatmeal scones have no salt. You will not miss it!
  • These healthy scones use a healthier vegetable oil with canola oil instead of one with more saturated fats.
  • It has plenty of nutritious protein and fiber from oats along with the egg used as the binding agent.
