Eating Well The original recipe calls for pears, which I think would be lovely too. 1 cup diced peeled pear, preferably Bartlett (1 large)

Recipe Ingredients for Maple Nut Apple Scones

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup oats
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese, cut into small pieces
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup canola oil
1 cup diced peeled apples (1 large)
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts, divided
3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg, lightly beaten with 1 tablespoon water for glaze

Recipe Directions for Maple Nut Apple Scones

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or coat with cooking spray.

  2. Combine whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, oats, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl; whisk to blend. Using a pastry blender or your fingertips, cut or rub cream cheese and butter into the dry ingredients. Add oil and toss with a fork to coat. Add pear and 1/4 cup nuts; toss to coat. Mix buttermilk and maple (or vanilla) extract in a measuring cup and add just enough to the dry ingredients, stirring with a fork, until the dough clumps together. (It will be sticky.)

  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead several times; do not overwork it. Divide the dough in half and pat each piece into a 7 1/2-inch circle. Cut each circle into 6 wedges and transfer to the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with the egg glaze and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup nuts, pressing lightly. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar.

  4. Bake the scones until golden and firm to the touch, 20 to 30 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.
