Whole Wheat Blueberry Scones

No one will suspect that these moist scones from our Test Kitchen staff are light. Featuring a rustic, sugary topping and loaded with whole wheat flour and fresh blueberries, the golden wedges are delightfully nutritious.

    they would have been much better with salt added to the recipe.

    The batter was very sticky. They came out ok, but I had to cut the baked scones apart. They certainly tasted healthy, but I prefer traditional scones, so will probably not make this recipe again.

    We made these for my brother's birthday. They were even more popular than the chocolate scones we had also made. They are delicious and moist and very easy to make. We are going to make them again very soon!
