Hearty, Healthy Protein Packed Scones

A healthy way to start the day...or snack your way through it!
Many times, parents are in a rush out of the house in the morning. After feeding their kids, they rarely have time to grab a nutritious breakfast for themselves. That usually leads to the dreadful drive-thru breakfast sandwich as the only option. These healthy, nutrient packed scones are a great option. They're easy to make and easy to grab on your way out the door!
