I get a lot of emails from people telling me they want to start their day off with a healthy breakfast, but they don’t have time for the usual healthy go-to breakfast-y things like eggs or hot cereal. Or even smoothies.

(As a side note, I am a firm believer that making a smoothie shouldn’t take longer than five minutes! That is less time than it takes to sit down and eat a bowl of cold cereal; not that cold cereal can’t be healthy, unless it’s the sugar-laden junk, but eating a bowl of cereal still takes longer than a smoothie, since a smoothie can be enjoyed on-the-go. And making a smoothie takes much less time than it takes to grab a coffee and donut from the drive-thru at the local coffee joint, especially if your local coffee joint is Tim Hortons and the 25-minute drive-thru line is out of the parking lot and onto the street. No joke.)

Maple-Walnut Buckwheat Scones with Honeyed Sage Butter

Can I let you in on a little secret?  I’m not really sure how I feel about buckwheat.  (Probably not the best way to sell you on these scones, but I have to keep it real, right?)  This was the first time I baked with it, and actually, the first time I’ve knowingly had it (other than in soba noodles, which I do enjoy).  Buckwheat is so healthy, I wanted to like it, really I did.  But it’s just so…I don’t know…grassy, maybe? Truth be told, cardboard-y is probably a better word....
