Ingredients

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup buttery spread (such as Smart Balance)
1 large egg
1/3 cup light agave nectar
1/3 cup low-fat buttermilk
2 tsp. fresh grated lemon zest

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or coat with butter-flavor cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the flours, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda.
  3. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the buttery spread until the flour mixture is crumbly.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the egg, agave nectar, buttermilk, and lemon zest. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture and stir until moistened.
  5. Lightly flour a clean work surface. With lightly floured hands, turn the dough onto the floured surface. Knead the dough for about 5 minutes, until smooth. Form the dough into a large square about 1/2 inch thick. Cut the large square into 16 mini squares.
  6. Place the mini squares about 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheet. Bake the scones for 8 to 9 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
