Blueberry Lemon Scones

Blueberry Lemon Scones

Who doesn’t like a good scone recipe? Especially if it’s a healthy scone recipe, right?! This recipe came to life when I had a pint of blueberries just sitting in my refrigerator. I bought the blueberries in hopes that Mr. Cason {our son} would eat them. But it seems that right now he would rather feed them to our dog than put them in his mouth. So, what’s a mom to do with a pint of blueberries her son won’t eat? Well, you could make blueberry pancakes {typical} or blueberry muffins {also typical}. Or, you could be super fun and create a yummy Blueberry Lemon Scone with a Lemon Glaze!!! Doesn’t that just sound more appetizing then plain old blueberry pancakes? :) Well, believe me, these Blueberry Lemon Scones are rockin’ and are the perfect “grab and go” breakfast! But let me warn you, you may want to make a double batch because these things will be gone fast! :)

To get started, Preheat the oven to 400º. In a bowl, combine the 1 cup of whole wheat flour, 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.

Blueberry Lemon Scones 1
Use a pastry blender, or two knives, to cut 6 Tablespoons of unsalted {chilled} butter until it resembles small peas and add the butter to flour mixture.

Next, stir in the 1 cup of fresh blueberries to flour mixture.

In a small bowl, mix together the 1 egg and 1 cup of lemon flavored greek yogurt.

Blueberry Lemon Scones 5
Add the yogurt mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. {mixture will still be crumbly}

Blueberry Lemon Scones 6
Dump the dough onto a work surface/counter and “knead” 3-4 times. {as much as you can with the crumbly consistency}

Blueberry Lemon Scones 7
Pat the dough into a circle about 1/2 an inch thick.

Blueberry Lemon Scones 8
Next, cut dough into 10-12 wedges and transfer wedges to a baking sheet.

Bake the scones 12-14 minutes.

Optional: To make a yummy lemon glaze to drizzle over the scones add 3/4 cup of powdered sugar to a small bowl.

I’ve been meaning to make scones for awhile. They are a guilty pleasure of mine when I brunch but they usually pack about 400-600 calories YIKES!

Reply

Krista July 3, 2013 at 8:26 AM

We all have our guilty pleasures. I think they are okay to have in moderation. :) Hope you enjoy Reba!

Hey, your printable recipe is missing the sugar ingredient, the cooking time, and also the glaze ingredients! I am baking now…the consistency of mine weren’t crumbly…these are my first scones, hoping they turn out well! :) Thanks for your recipe!

Reply

Krista July 9, 2013 at 7:11 PM

I have been loving these scones! I’ve made them twice and they’re great. I had a friend visiting last weekend, though, and she’s vegan, so I used this recipe. Good, too!
