Okay, this is kind of a fall recipe, but my obsession with apples is growing deeper and deeper, so I centered this (vegan) scone recipe around my favorite little gala.

Apple Wheat Scones

2 cups flour

2/3 cup wheat germ

2 tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. cinnamon

¼ tsp. baking soda

¼ tsp. salt

a pinch of ground nutmeg

1/3 cup Earth Balance (or any butter substitute)

1 large Gala apple, peeled and chopped

½ cup vanilla soy milk

¼ cup agave

Topping:

2 tsp. wheat germ

2 tsp. sugar

¼ tsp. cinnamon

Combine the dry ingredients (flour, wheat germ, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, nutmeg) in one bowl. Combine the apple, milk, and agave in a smaller bowl. Then cut the earth balance into the flour mixture until crumbly. Add the milk mixture to the dry bowl and mix until just combined.

Turn dough onto a floured surface and pat into a disk – about ½ inch thick. Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle over dough. Cut into eight wedges and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 400* for 15 – 18 minutes. Remove and cool.

I’m currently at my last childbirth preparation class, and I can say – taking this class is one of the best things I’ve ever done. I went into it terrified of giving birth, and I can honestly say that just 12 hours of class has made me feel confident and so excited to bring little Baby Cakes into the world. Now I just have to wait about 3 more months…

In the 3rd grade world…

We are reading a story that takes place during the Great Depression, so I had my kiddos research 5 facts about that period of history this morning.

Two fashion forward boys came up with this little nugget…
