Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl: whole wheat flour, sucanat, lavender, baking powder, salt, and orange zest. Whisk together.
Add the cold butter to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter (like this) or your fingers, cut the butter into the dry ingredients. You're ready to proceed on when the butter resembles coarse crumbs.
In a small bowl beat the egg and milk.
Pour the milk and egg into the dry ingredients. Stir until just combined.
With your hands bring the dough together (into an unformed ball) on a piece of wax parchment paper. Using your fingers push the dough outward into a circle (about an inch high).
Cut the dough into eight slices (similar to cutting a pizza). Brush the melted butter over the top of the scones and sprinkle with sucanat.
Place the parchment paper (and scones) in the oven, preferably on a baking stone or cookie sheet.
Bake for 16-18 minutes.
Serve with jam, butter, or honey.
