The only thing that can get me through tough times is SCONES! They go great with coffee, milk or orange juice. You can make a batch to share with your family or just eat them all yourselves because YOLO.
I’ve been sick all week… and then some. I can’t wait to get back to my normal self. I think it took me until now to really appreciate my taste buds. I’m on day 4 of no taste or smell and it’s absolute agony. I just want to eat something and be able to taste it again!
The first recipe that came to mind when I was thinking of how to celebrate my taste coming back was these blueberry scones. I could really go for one of these right now.
It was so long ago when I photographed this recipe. Last summer late! I’m so behind. I better start posting two a week to get caught up. I am a bit worried, though, how I’ll find time to post once I start college. I think I’ll manage. At least I hope so.
These scones are:
Best with coffee
- 1 and ½ cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 Tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ cup coconut sugar + more for topping
- ½ cup refined coconut oil (solid, but soft-ish)
- 1 egg, beaten
- ½ cup non-fat Greek yogurt
- 3 Tablespoons almond milk
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup fresh blueberries, gently rinsed and dried
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk all dry ingredients together.
- Add coconut oil and mix with a large fork until crumbly, but combined.
- In a small bowl, whisk egg until lightly beaten.
- Add egg to mixing bowl and use fork to combine.
- Add Greek yogurt, almond milk and vanilla and mix until combined.
- Gently rinse and dry blueberries, then gently stir into mixing bowl.
- Form a 1-inch tall circle of dough on lined baking sheet.
- Cut into 8 triangles with a very sharp knife and gently separate so each triangle is 2 inches apart. For additional sweetness, sprinkle coconut sugar on top of each scone.
- Bake 26-29 minutes, or until golden brown and firm to touch.
