Make it Better Yourself- Breakfast Goodies

I am always ogling the breakfast goodies on my way through the grocery store, but I resist them as I know they are positively loaded with garbage. I forget how easy it is to make your own at home, and how much better they are and taste. 
Yes, there were six, but I ate one right up!

Today I made scones using Vegan Joy's pumpkin scone recipe. I have made these several times, and they only take a few minutes to mix plus about 12 to bake. I omit the glaze, as I prefer butter and jam. Glaze and jam would just be too much sweet. I think next time I may try a simple sprinkle of sugar on the top. Oh, and I improvised with banana scones instead of pumpkin- I had to add about another 1/2 cup of flour. Plus, I was out of brown sugar, but you can easily make your own. I have also made blueberry scones with this recipe before. Play with the recipe- it is versatile. Oh and these scones are way, way better for you than a grocery store danish, but not tooooo good for you, if you know what I mean! 


  1. I love making scones! Those look yummy!

  2. Do you have a recipe you use regularly? Please share! I love the Starbucks cinnamon chip scones. If I could make those...:)


Thanks for stopping at Farmhouse Garden! I love to hear from you...
