Wheat Scones

My husband tells me that I am not normal.  Rather the things that I consider “normal,” really aren’t.

Like grinding grain at 7:30 AM to make my kids scones for breakfast.  He claims that no one does this.  It’s not natural.

I don’t find my sprouting, grinding, and baking out of the ordinary.  We operate on a slower rhythm in the mornings.  I wake up typically before the kids, read my Bible, complete the tasks required of being a social media manager, and feed the kids somewhere between 8 and 9 AM.  They don’t mind not eating immediately because the wait is usually worth it.

OK.  I’ll admit.  This isn’t cereal.  But I’m just thankful that because of having the Wondermill now, I can FEED my kids grain.  Otherwise we would avoid wheat entirely.

While it may look like I  make scones for my children, I really make these bad boys for myself.  I mean the whole reason I wanted a Wondermill was to make sprouted baked goods for myself.

Shh, don’t tell my family.

They are just reaping the benefits of living with me.

So on this particular morning, I was craving a scone.  But I had zero ground wheat in the freezer.  But plenty of wheat berries in the oven where some had finished drying the night before.

Flipping through my New Cook Book, I landed upon scones and completely altered the recipe.

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 6 tablespoons chilled coconut oil (you can use butter)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup organic half-and-half (or cream from the top of your raw milk) or coconut creme from Trader Joes


Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and 1/4 salt.

coconut oil

Cut in coconut oil (or butter).

Add egg and half-and-half.  Beat until just mixed. Combine chocolate chips if you are including them.

On a Silpat mat, pat dough out into a circle about 1/2 inch thick.  You can score if you like, however, I opted not to.

I found that these tasted better later in the afternoon after sitting out for several hours.

But my kids liked them both times.

Grain Mill Wagon Experience: Having the Wondermill in our home has truly been a blessing, if you can call a kitchen appliance one. It came as a literal answer to prayer and has been used EXTENSIVELY in our kitchen and to bless others with freshly sprouted and ground flour. The Grain Mill Wagon Challenge was a fun way to include my children and have them help me bake in the kitchen. I think we will continue to pretend that we are part of the ongoing group of bloggers who use their WonderMill. I know my kids want more cookies and the opportunity to help the grain go down the Wondermill shoot.
