Easter brunch calls for pretty pastries and satisfying sweets! These simple, spring-inspired scones are perfectly portioned and packed with berrylicious flavor. Featuring a whole wheat base, a medley of your favorite mixed berries and a sprinkle of coconut sugar, this healthy scone recipe provides the crumbly texture and light sweetness of scones that you’re craving.

While the Easter holiday is known for baskets of sugar-filled treats and unhealthy indulgences, you can easily stay on track with your weight loss plan by finding some diet-friendly dessert recipes. Take these Mixed Triple Berry Scones for example: They fill you up with fiber, satisfy your sweet tooth and prevent you from reaching into that bowl of chocolate eggs and marshmallow candy.

Pro Tip: Make these healthy scones your own by using your favorite combination of berries! We love using frozen blueberries, raspberries and blackberries, but you can also try them with strawberries, cranberries or cherries. You can also use fresh or frozen berries depending on what you have on hand. This is a versatile and easy scone recipe that you can truly make your own.
