Blueberry Spelt Scones

I absolutely love scones! Nothing goes better with your morning coffee than a good scone or biscotti. The lemon in this recipe definitely is the key ingredient; it adds so much flavor to the scone.  If you are looking for a sweet scone I would suggest using brown sugar instead of the agave.  I’m not a big sweets fan so to me these turned out to be fabulous.  They were so refreshing and have a perfect texture.

    1. Alison,
      Thanks! I definitely think skim milk would work just fine. I have not tested it but thought about using almond milk. If it works let me know. 🙂

  2. Yum. Those look and sound delicious. I was planning on making some of these, too, and I’ll have to consider using spelt flour instead.

  3. HiI had some fresh Ontario blueberries and I thought to have a go at making scones. I’m trying to work with spelt flour and this recipe sounded yummy and they are yummy too!
    I tried using unsweetened organic soy milk and I increased the blueberries to a cup. They aren’t super sweet so for my husband I dusted them with icing sugar. He couldn’t believe his luck!

  4. I LOVE spelt anything, I need to try these scones! Have you ever used Babycakes NYC spelt scone recipe? They are really good, thanks for posting this recipe! I love your blog and am inspired by your healthy balance!

  5. Nice blog.
    Do you think raspberries would work instead of blueberries, or would they be too watery?
