Blueberry Scones from above

 

I love scones for breakfast!  These delicious multigrain blueberry scones from the Weight Watcher’s cookbook, Power Foods, is sure to become a favorite.

I would rather have a scone than a doughnut with a nice steaming cup of coffee any day.  These scones are not only multigrain but are lower in fat and sugar than many scones.  Any kind of berry is good in a scone along with a citrus zest.  Blueberry-lemon is wonderful, or try cranberry-orange.

The scone is tender with a crunchy sugary top and edges.  It has so much more character than a doughnut, don’t you think?  And of course better for you, which is always an added plus.
