Skinny choco chunk scones

August 01, 2014


In the world of cheesy egg sandwiches and carby bagels, finding a healthy breakfast that is tasty can sometimes present a challenge. That's why we have these scones. Mini chocolate chip scones are indulgent enough to make you think sinful, but healthy and light, perfect for grabbing and going.

3/4 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup sugar

2 tsp. vanilla

1 large egg

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 Tbsp. baking powder

3 Tbsp cold butter, cut into cubes

3/4 cup chocolate chips

Directions Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine first four ingredients in a bowl and whisk. In a food processor, combine flour and baking powder and pulse to combine. Add in the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Remove to a bowl and fold in chocolate chips. Stir in wet mixture until just moist. Turn the dough on a floured surface and knead then flatten into a large rectangle, approximately 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick. Use a cutter to cut 20 squares out of the dough. Place each square onto your baking sheet and bake for 16 minutes until golden.

Makes 20 scones.
