Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons of unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup pitted cherries, halved or diced
  • 1/3 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet by place a large sheet on parchment paper on it.
  3. To a food processor add whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Blend to mix.
  4. Next add pieces of butter to the blender. Pulse blender until the butter is combined and starts to look like small peas.
  5. In a small bowl, add almond milk, vanilla extract, almond extract, and egg. Whisk together and add liquid mixture to the blender. Pulse the blender until the mixture starts to look like a dough and wet and dry ingredients are combined.
  6. Place dough on a well floured surfaced. Add cherries and chocolate chips to the dough. Using well floured hands, gently fold the cherries and chocolate into the dough.
  7. Form the dough into a large disc shape.
  8. Cut dough into 8 triangular pieces.
  9. Add the scones to the prepared baking sheet. Place about 1″ apart from each other. Sprinkle the tops with the sliced almonds.
  10. Bake for 13-15 minutes. (14 minutes was my sweet spot)
  11. Remove from oven. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve
