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.

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