Healthy Blueberry Greek Yogurt Scones1

One fruit I’m absolutely deeply in love with are the organic braeburn apples from Investor Joe’s. They’re among my favorite healthy snacks especially when dipped in peanut butter or vanilla greek yogurt. I feel so lucky once i find them because they have the sweetest taste and best crunchy texture. Lord understands I’m already thrilled for apple time of year therefore i can bake up my famous apple sharp and warm up some hearts.
Since we’re not into the Fall season at this time, I felt enjoy it was a little too early to start busting out apple dishes. Therefore today I’m bringing you a wholesome, lightened up whole grain scone bursting with the nice blueberries I came across at my local farmer’s market earlier come early july. They’ve been in my own freezer for days gone by month and I was wanting to utilize them up!
This is actually my first time tinkering with scones and it definitely won’t be the final. The crumb was quite ideal- so fluffy and moist from the greek yogurt. The outside has a beautiful crunchy texture which was amazing; it tasted like the top of a blueberry muffin. The best part is that these healthful ones absolutely melt in the mouth area as being a buttery scone would. Try dipping them in a little coffee. TO Pass away FOR.
I thought about glazing them, but they’re quite ideal as is. Not really too lovely, but something that you could appreciate for breakfast time or packed to get a guilt-free lunch or snack.
I used just a bit of butter in these, nevertheless, you could try using coconut essential oil instead. I don’t see it making a lot of a notable difference. Jazz up these scones by adding a press of clean lemon juice or some vanilla beans.
Enjoy! xo
Ingredients
2/3 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat grains pastry flour or white whole wheat grains
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons butter
1 egg white
Cooking spray
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a little saucepan, brown the butter over medium high heat. If you are unfamiliar how to do this, I’ve produced a detail by detail tutorial If you don’t feel like browning it, you can simply melt and great the butter, or make use of softened butter.
In a big bowl, whisk collectively both flours, brown sugar, baking soda pop, baking natural powder and salt.
In a small dish, combined greek yogurt, vanilla, butter, and egg white. Add moist ingredients to dried out ingredients and stir until just moist. Mixture should be crumbly. Gently collapse in blueberries.
Convert dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead about 8 times together with your hands. Dough will quickly come together. Type dough right into a 6-8 inch circle and put on baking sheet or parchment paper coated with food preparation spray. Cut into 6 wedges and barely separate.
To help make the topping, combine sugar and cinnamon. Spray the top of the dough with cooking food spray then sprinkle the top of the dough using the cinnamon sugar blend. Bake for 15-20 a few minutes or until the surface of the scones are gently golden brown.
Feel free to use a flavored greek yogurt.
Try adding raspberries or strawberries instead of blueberries! You can also use dried fruit.

I’m new to the cooking world but tried these today and LOVE how they turned out, will definitely be tinkering with more of your formulas:)
Hi Monique,
I actually made these plus they turned out so good!! Can’t believe they in fact turn out such as a actual scone. Next up, I was thinking if I can replace the the butter with applesauce.. Would that end up being unthinkable? Or worth a try.?
Hi Monique,
i do not like the thickness of greek yogourt for feeding on, so i never have it around…however, i do usually have plain yogourt within the fridge, so i just place some in just a little sieve for approximately one hour before making these, and a lot of water drained out and gave me personally the width required! ?
