These hearty scones are not your traditional buttery, flaky scone. Made with honey, olive oil and whole grains plus the nourishing addition of herbs you and your family can enjoy these tasty scones anytime! Ingredients 1 egg ½ cup of honey 5 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil Zest of one organic lemon ½ cup rolled oats ¼ cup of oat bran, wheat bran or cornmeal 1 ½ cup whole wheat pastry flour 2 tablespoons of millet or sesame seeds 2 tablespoons of poppy seeds ½ teaspoon salt 1 ½ teaspoon of lavender blossoms 1 tablespoon baking powder ¼ to ½ cup of chopped fresh lemon balm leaves ½ cup milk Plus… 1 pint of blueberries, optional Lemon balm lavender sugar, optional


Directions

  • If you are using blueberries combine them in a bowl with a generous sprinkle of sugar (lemon balm lavender sugar if you have it) and set aside to stew while you prepare the rest of the batter.

  • Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees and oil a cookie sheet.

  • Whip together the egg, honey, olive oil, and lemon zest in one bowl.

  • In another bowl, combine the dry ingredients including the lemon balm leaves. Rub the lavender blossoms between your fingers as you add them to the batter. This will help to break them up into smaller pieces.

  • Mix the liquid ingredients with the dry ingredients. You will have a very thick batter.

  • Add the milk, stirring everything together.

  • Next place generous spoonfuls of batter on the cookie sheet

  • Top with a good sprinkle of sugar for a crusty, yummy top

  • If you are using blueberries, place a small spoonful of batter on the cookie sheet. Top with a few blueberries and then add some more batter on top of the blueberries. Finish them up with a sprinkle of sugar on top.

  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool before removing from the cookie sheet.

Enjoy!


Benefits Of Lemon Balm & Lavender

Lemon balm and lavender together create a beautiful, happy flavor playing off one another. Incorporating lemon balm and lavender into your food gives it an extra boost of health and vitality that is part of the special gift herbs give us. Lemon balm and lavender are both lovely nervines that help to ease stress and relax spasms. Both plants are wonderful for the whole family to use though lemon balm has a particular affinity for children. Beyond the aromatic oils that make lemon balm smell so delightful, the herb is full of healthful vitamins and minerals.
