Clean Chocolate Chip Scones
 

Yields: 8 scones


Ingredients:
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp (28g) unsalted butter, very cold and cubed
  • 1 ½ cups (180g) white whole wheat flour or gluten-free* flour (measured like this)
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp + 2 tsp (40mL) nonfat milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (120g) plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp (45mL) pure maple syrup
  • 2 ½ tbsp (35g) miniature chocolate chips, divided

Directions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F, and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or the back of a fork until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in the Greek yogurt, maple syrup, 2 tablespoons of milk, and vanilla. Fold in 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips.
  3. Shape the dough into a ¾” tall circle on the prepared baking sheet, and brush with the remaining milk. Slice the circle into 8 triangular segments with a sharp knife. Gently press the remaining chocolate chips into the tops. Bake at 425°F for 17-20 minutes, or until the tops are lightly golden. Cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
  4. Notes: Regular whole wheat flour, whole wheat pastry flour, and all-purpose flour may all be substituted for the white whole wheat flour.
  5. For a gluten-free version, I recommend the following blend: 1 cup (120g) millet flour, ¼ cup (30g) tapioca flour, ¼ cup (30g) brown rice flour, and 1 teaspoon xanthan gum. Many store-bought gluten-free flour blends may be substituted as well, if measured like this.
  6. Honey or agave may be substituted in place of the maple syrup.
  7. Any milk may be substituted for the nonfat milk.
