|Skinny Chocolate Chip Scones|
Can you believe I actually made something I pinned on Pinterest! GO ME!!
On MLK Jr. Day I put my domestic hat on and made some skinny scones from the Skinny Tastes blog.
I tweaked the recipe to make them even skinnier by replacing the sugar with Xyitol and the butter with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter for Baking!
Yum Yum Yum, and I think they look pretty good too!
(FYI the pic are the ones I made, not something I found online)
Here is the recipe:
- 3/4 cup cold buttermilk
- 1/4 cup sugar or sugar replacement like me!
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup all purpose flour (Bob's Red Mill)
- 1 cup white whole wheat flour (Bob's Red Mill)
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 tbsp chilled butter (must be cold) cut into small pieces or my replacement
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
- cooking spray
- 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
- 1 1/2 tbsp sugar
Preheat oven to 375°. Combine the first four ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray.
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Cut in chilled butter with a pastry blender, or you could use 2 knives, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gently fold in chocolate chips. Add milk mixture, stirring just until moist.
Place dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly four times with floured hands. Form dough into an 9-inch circle onto baking sheet, about 3/4" thick. Using a knife, cut dough into 12 wedges all the way through.
Brush egg white over dough and sprinkle evenly with sugar. Bake until golden, about 18-20 minutes, depending on your oven. Serve warm.
