My eating habit for the day is to snack…a lot. This can be dangerous because any open bag in the pantry becomes fair game. If I have some kind of fruit and nut combo like trail mix or a power bar, I’m usually okay and able to skip the danger snacks.

An easy way to get rid of hunger with these trail mix  scones

One thing I love to have for breakfast is a scone covered with a lethal slather of butter and jam. For these simple scones I switched out the buttermilk, which would normally be the wet ingredient in the recipe, to Silk Vanilla Soymilk. Zero cholesterol and protein packed sounds like a good way to describe these hunger-bustin’ scones. I threw in some of my favorite trail mix and covered the top with a blueberry flax seed granola.

The end result was like a chunky, crunchy, chocolatey blowout in my mouth. The Silk Soy Milk worked just as good as buttermilk would have, maybe even a smidgen better because of the vanilla flavor!
