Light and fluffy Maple Oatmeal Scones made with whole wheat and no refined sugar are a healthy treat for breakfast.
After my husband’s heart attack a few years ago, we had to change some things in our diet. We already had a fairly healthy diet, but my husband is pre-disposed to high cholesterol. That fact along with wanting to find a lower saturated fat dairy product, lead me to soy milk. It has no cholesterol and has plant protein. (Go protein!) Boy did I approach this with a little trepidation. What was it going to taste like? Would we like it? Would it change the flavor in my baked goods? So silly, soy milk works wonderfully in every baked item I’ve tried from baked oatmeal to my favorite scones, these Maple Oatmeal Scones. I’ve finally found a way to make them healthier but taste just like the original high fat and high calorie scone. I’m tickled pink and have happy dancing taste buds.
This is just one small change we have made for healthy living. I still get to enjoy these scrumptious scones that are light and fluffy. They have a wonderful flavor from the oatmeal and the maple syrup. You can grab one and eat breakfast on the run or slowly savor each bite with a cup of coffee on the weekend. My husband does the grab and go breakfast. Since I work at home, I can savor each delicious bite with my much-needed cup of coffee. My little one likes to have hers as an after school snack. We are one happy family with these. Another unhealthy recipe rescued from the trash bin and made healthy.
As soon as I tell myself I cannot have something, I want it even more. Being able to make my favorite recipes healthier, has enabled me to feel like I am not punishing myself. I can choose to eat a scone and have it fit within my daily calorie intake. It takes the strain off of losing weight and gives me one less excuse. Wellness is still such a mind game, but I am finding ways to deal with my brain, while I try to change to a healthier lifestyle for good.
