Clean Eating Cranberry Orange Scones

Clean Eating Cranberry Orange Scones

Not long ago I was given a copy ofย this recipe. I tried it and then declared it completely delicious. It was, however, too full of refined stuff for me, so I have cleaned it up, and I still think they are pretty awesome! These freeze well, so I like to make extras to freeze for breakfasts later on.

Cleaned Up Cranberry Orange Scones
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 3 tablespoons hot water
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (I like the lighter varieties for this recipe, either white whole wheat flour or pastry flour)
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅓ cup cold butter
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup orange juice (about the juice of 1 orange)
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix flaxseed with the hot water in a small bowl, set aside (you can also use 1 egg for this part if you don't have an egg allergy in the house like we do)
  3. In a food processor combine flour, orange peel, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Pulse 3-4 times.
  4. Add butter and pulse 6-7 times, until it resembles coarse crumbs (Alternatively you could combine dry ingredients in a bowl and cut in butter using pastry cutter or two knives).
  5. In a separate bowl, combine flaxseed mixture, cranberries, orange juice, milk, and syrup. Add to food processor and mix until a soft dough forms.
  6. Move dough to floured surface and knead 6-8 times. Shape dough into a round disc and cut into 10 equal wedges.
  7. Separate wedges and bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

    1. Hi Roberta! Right now it’s all through Facebook, but by the end of this month it will all be run through this site. I’ll hang on to your email address and let you know as soon as that’s available!

    1. Thank you! You can use any whole grain pasta, just be sure to check ingredient lists for weird ingredients. Out of all the whole grain pastas, I like brown rice pasta the best.
