2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2/3 cup toasted wheat germ
1/3 cup margarine
1-1/4 cups finely chopped apple
1/2 cup skim milk
1/4 cup honey

1 tablespoon toasted wheat germ
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon sugar

Preheat oven 400 degrees. Lightly spray a large cookie heet with non-stick cooking spray. Handle the dough gently; overmixing the scones can make them tough.

Combine flour, wheat germ, baking powder, spices, baking soda & optional salt. Cut in the margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add combined apple, milk, and honey, mixing until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface; knead gently 5-6 times. Pat dough into a 9-inch circle.

Mix together topping ingredients (1 tablespoon wheat germ, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon sugar). Sprinkle over dough. Cut dough into 10 wedges. Place 1/2-inch apart on prepared cookie sheet. Bake 16 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown.
