Whole wheat Strawberry rhubarb scones

The rhubarb season is finally here and I couldn’t not to buy a big bunch of rhubarbs in a grocery store.

It’s almost summer time and I can’t believe how fast the time flies. The air is fresh and warm and everywhere on the streets you can smell flowers. Seriously, everywhere! I love this time of the year so much. I love to wake up early in the morning and listen to the singing of the birds. I’m so grateful for this.

We all have seasonal classic that we cook at least one time during the season. Apple cinnamon pie are for Autumn, hot chocolate is for winter time, we cook artichokes in Spring. But when it’s about Summer time – it is definitely a rhubarb and strawberry time! They are kinda of rockstars of the summer. Every year I’m baking at least one pie or galette just because I love it so much! I love this sweet and sour flavor.

This time I decided to bake the very simple and super delicious Whole Wheat Strawberry Rhubarb Scones. The reason, why? Just because I love to create the new things and I just love scones for my breakfast with a cup of coffee.

There are no special tricks on this recipe. It is so simple that you can enjoy them in one hour after you started to prepare them.
