Step by Step Method

Step 1

Mix flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and baking soda together.

Step 2

Cut in the butter. I only used 1 stick of butter myself. The first time I made this I used 3 different kinds of measuring cups; don't do that, lol, it didn't work, lol.

Step 3

Mix in egg and buttermilk; mix together.

Step 4

Add cinnamon baking chips.

Step 5

Pat out on bench flour; make round; pat down. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.

Step 6

Cut into 6 wedges; separate and bake 15 or 20 minutes in a 425 degree Fahrenheit oven until done. The scones that I didn't separate completely didn't cook as fast.

  • Make sure to use a high-quality butter for the best flavor.

  • Substitute coconut sugar for brown sugar - Coconut sugar has a lower glycemic index than traditional brown sugar, making it a healthier alternative for those watching their sugar intake.
  • Substitute coconut oil for butter - Coconut oil is a plant-based alternative to dairy butter, and is a healthier choice due to its high concentration of healthy fats.
