Over the past three months, I’ve been on an actual fruit obsession. Fruit smoothies, shakes, desserts and jams galore! If you take into account, I even put blueberries in a cookie (OMG so excellent!).
One fruit I’m completely in love with are the organic braeburn apples from Trader Joe’s. They’re one among my favourite healthy snacks especially when dipped in peanut butter or vanilla greek yogurt. I believe so lucky when I find them as a result of they've the sweetest taste and best crunchy texture. Lord is aware of I’m already excited for apple season so I can bake up my famous apple crisp and heat up some hearts.
Since we’re not into the Fall season just but, I felt love it was a little bit too early to start busting out apple recipes. So nowadays I’m bringing you a healthy, lightened up entire grain scone bursting with the sweet blueberries I discovered at my local farmer’s market earlier this summer season. They’ve been in my freezer for the past month and I used to be eager to make use of them up!
This used to be in fact my first time experimenting with scones and it surely received’t be the remaining. The crumb was once relatively easiest– so fluffy and wet from the greek yogurt. The out of doors has a good looking crunchy texture that was impossible to resist; it tasted like the top of a blueberry muffin. The easiest phase is that these healthy ones completely melt to your mouth just like a buttery scone would. Try dipping them in a little espresso. TO DIE FOR.
I thought of glazing them, but they’re rather perfect as is. Not too candy, however something that you could revel in for breakfast or packed for a guilt-free lunch or snack.
I used just a little of butter in these, but it's good to try the use of coconut oil as an alternative. I don’t see it making a lot of a difference. Jazz up those scones by including a squeeze of unpolluted lemon juice or some vanilla beans.

Healthy scones made with entire wheat flour, greek yogurt, and juicy blueberries. Delicious within the morning with a cup of coffee!
- 2/3 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup complete wheat pastry flour or white entire wheat flour
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- pinch salt
- 1/3 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1 egg white
- 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- Cooking spray
- 1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
- pinch cinnamon
Preheat oven to four hundred levels F.
- In a small saucepan, brown the butter over medium prime heat. If you are unfamiliar how to do that, I've created a step by step tutorial. If you do not feel like browning it, you can just melt and cool the butter, or use softened butter.
In a large bowl, whisk together both flours, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In a small bowl, combined greek yogurt, vanilla, butter, and egg white. Add wet components to dry substances and stir until simply wet. Mixture should be crumbly. Gently fold in blueberries.
Turn dough onto a flippantly floured surface and knead about 8 occasions with your fingers. Dough will begin to come together. Form dough right into a 6-Eight inch circle and place on baking sheet or parchment paper lined with cooking spray. Cut into 6 wedges and barely separate.
To make the topping, combine sugar and cinnamon. Spray the highest of the dough with cooking spray then sprinkle the top of the dough with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until top of the scones are evenly golden brown.
Feel loose to make use of a flavored greek yogurt.
Try adding raspberries or strawberries as a substitute of blueberries! You can also use dried fruit.
