I’ve been obsessed with using different kinds of flour as of late, the most recent of which is buckwheat flour. One of its greatest attributes is that it is a gluten free flour so it is acceptable for all of you folks who may be sensitive! And even though these scones DO have gluten because there is a mixture of buckwheat and whole wheat flour, at least there is only half, right? I decided to use figs and pecans as my add-ins because they go really well with the earthiness of the buckwheat. Molasses is just one of the most nostalgic breakfast items for me, so it was a no brainer to use it as the icing. I love a good homemade biscuit with butter and molasses! These Buckwheat Scones with Molasses Glaze are a great in-between of healthy and indulgent but are sure to keep you full and focused for hours!
