Instructions
  1. Place diced apples, water, honey, and a generous pinch of cinnamon in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook the apples, stirring occasionally, until they are soft (you may need to add more water to the saucepan if it evaporates before the apples have softened). Mash the cooked apples with a potato masher or a large fork a few times, until the apple pieces are smaller in size. Remove from the apples from the heat and allow them to cool.
  2. Heat the oven to 375º. Place a piece of parchment paper on a large baking sheet. Place flours, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, and sea salt in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse the ingredients together a few times. Add the diced butter to the bowl of the food processor and pulse the ingredients together a few more times, until the butter is mostly incorporated into the flour mixture.
  3. Whisk the egg and milk together in a glass measuring cup. With the food processor on low, pour the milk mixture into the bowl of the food processor, stopping as soon as the dough has formed.
  4. Pour the dough onto a well-floured clean surface. Spoon the cooked apples on to the dough and use your hands to incorporate the apples into the dough. Shape the dough into a rough circle, about 2" high. Cut the circle of dough into eight even triangles. Place the triangles of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, making sure that they have space to grow as they bake.
  5. In a small bowl, stir together the cinnamon and sugar. Brush each unbaked scone with melted butter and sprinkle each with about a teaspoon of the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
  6. Bake the scones for 15-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown on the top and bottom but still tender on the inside. While the scones cool, make the almond maple glaze.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, and cinnamon until the glaze resembles caramel. Once the scones have cooled, drizzle the glaze over each one.
