Cranberry Scones

I just whipped up some cranberry scones.
Would you like one with your coffee?

I love swinging by Starbucks and grabbing a skinny latte and a scone or piece of coffee cake.  Yes,  I have a coffee addiction and yep, I would do it every day if I could {giggle}.  Now I’m curious.  If you were to head to your local coffee shop, what would you order?  Coffee?  Tea?  Scone? Cake? Cake Pop?

Today I thought I’d share one of my favorite {and healthy} recipes that pairs quite perfectly with a cup of coffee.  I make these often and they always seem to hit the spot.  Cranberry Scones.  It’s a wonderful breakfast food, mid-morning snack or a wonderful dessert served with coffee or tea.  The best part of all is that it only has 4 Points in the new Weight Watchers Points Plus program.  {Love} it!

It’s super easy and guilt free, you can’t beat that.  The cranberries can be substituted with raisins, cherries or any other dry fruit of choice.  Doesn’t that make this recipe even more exciting? {giggle}

    Kelly, I was so excited because I had all the ingredients, that is until I got down to buttermilk – shoot! And we've declared today Pajama Day so I'm not going any where:-) I'm looking up a substitute – I think if I add vinegar to regular milk, it should be ok, but I'll let you know!

    Hi. I am a real ‘Sconnoisseur’ and I am setting up a source for everything to do with scones. If you would like to add recipes or add your favourite location for eating scones, have a look at the Scone Advisor website.
