Chai Latte Scones

Breakfast in my household is usually something small and quick because, let's be honest, who has time for an elaborate breakfast on your average weekday? Some days that means a green smoothie or oatmeal with fresh fruit or a hard-boiled egg with some whole wheat toast, but some days I want something that feels special (but still takes minimal effort), which in my world means a freshly-baked scone. What, you say? How can a freshly-baked scone be quick? Well, that's the beauty of a dough-based pastry (as opposed to a batter-based pastry like muffins). You can actually prep and freeze them in advance and bake them individually whenever a scone strikes your fancy.


So, get out your mixing bowl and mix yourself up a batch of these beauties this weekend. Your weekday mornings will thank you.
