Everyone has been on a “healthy” kick. That seems to be what January is all about. Eating healthier, lighter, and making smart food decisions.
Well, guess what? January is over! It’s time to start putting some meat back on your bones and these scones are a great place to start.
I have an avid sweet tooth when it comes to breakfast. Because of this, I usually just stick to a banana and yogurt. Both are sweet and good for you.
But lately, I’ve been on a scone kick. You may remember a couple weeks back when I mentioned that I’ve found my one and only scone recipe. I can’t seem to stop making scones now.
I want to use the base for all sorts of flavors!!
I’ve made honey citrus sweet potato scones before but they were nothing like today’s recipe. Today’s scones are light and fluffy. Soft and tender on the inside with a nice biscuit-like crunch on the outside. And so, so good.
The brown sugar glaze gives the scones an added sweetness. It’s like eating a baked sweet potato topped with butter and brown sugar. One of my favorite restaurant treats!
Remember to handle the dough as little as possible and don’t overmix. You want it to be lumpy.
You are going to love the intense sweet potato flavor in these buttery-soft scones.
