Tender and slightly sweet, these High Fiber Scones are made with whole grains via high-fiber cereal and a sweet and nutty flavor combo of figs and pecans.
I’ve loved traditional scones for years, and raisin scones at O’Henry’s in Birmingham, AL are my fave. But I also love buttery scones, lemon blueberry scones, gluten free scones… and of course, easy scones. I’ll take them all.
And who can argue that a healthy dose of fiber in your morning scone isn’t a good idea? While you likely won’t find high-fiber scones at your local coffee shop, once you’ve made these you’ll wonder why not. Their delicious flavor and tender crumb will turn on your taste buds the first time you try them.
Frequently Asked Questions about these High Fiber Scones
Can I use a different high-fiber cereal?
I would recommend using the cereal I tested with and call for in the recipe. Most other high-fiber cereals are flaked cereals. If you use them, then you’ll likely get a different result.
What are Mission figs?
According to California Figs, Mission figs are one of the fig varieties grown in California. They describe their flavor as a “deep earthy flavor like a Cabernet.” Since they’re dried, they’re easy to find year-round, unlike most fresh figs.
Why do you use cold butter in scones?
From TheKitchn.com: “The secret to the flakiest scones is to start with cold ingredients — cold butter, cold eggs, and cold cream. Similar to making pie crust, using cold ingredients prevents the butter from melting before the scones are baked, leaving it instead to melt in the oven and create a super-flaky end result.“
