Apple & Pear Scones made with Whole Grains

 
Simplify breakfast time by making scone packets for your freezer. I get out 5 different bowls, mix all of the dry ingredients together (one recipe per bowl), and then dump each bowl into a freezer bag. Then next time I want scones, instead of having to get all of the dry ingredients out again, I just pull a bag out of the freezer! I got this idea from Jessica over at Life As Mom and it works great for me.
 
If you’re having trouble seeing the ingredient amount in the recipe card, here they are:
 
2 cups unbleached flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sugar, preferably raw sugar, but any sugar will do
1/2 cup cold butter
1/2 cup diced apple
1/2 cup diced pear
2/3 cup buttermilk

Have you ever tried whole grain baking, like apple & pear scones?
