  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the whole wheat flour, wheat germ, brown sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Mix in shortening until everything looks crumbly. Stir in the cranberries and orange zest. In a separate bowl, stir together the egg, milk and orange juice. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet mixture. Stir until dough forms. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead briefly to get the dough to hold together. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness and cut into circles with a biscuit cutter. Place scones 2 inches apart on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops and bottoms are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.

This recipe is fantastic and easy. I exchanged the wheat germ for unprocessed bran and drizzled them with icing made from fresh squeezed orange juice and confectionary sugar.

A little on the dry side but of course you're going to expect it from the www/wheat germ. But these healthy scones has potential. All I need is a healthy spread or icing.

I did not think it was possible to have another scone recipe, but because we love cranberries so much just had to have this one. Did make some changes (to suit my taste) - substituted 1/2 cup w...

I followed almost exactly, Couple of days before I put zest in sugar thinking it would "candy", I think it just added a little more sugar to the mix. I ground my own flour (1st time) and because...

Absolutely delicious. I used wheat bran instead of wheat germ and butter instead of shortening. Very grainy, healthy texture, and they aren't loaded with sugar. Just be careful not to overcook ...
