Scones are one of my favorite things to make. These little wholesome goodies top the list of my favorite scones—fluffy, packed full of fruit and naturally sweetened!

The nice thing about scones is they don’t need to rise like other bread type recipes. There are minimal ingredients in this recipe. Plus the sweetener is honey which always a bonus in my book.
