Whole Wheat Blueberry Scone Recipe

I am doing my best to cook healthier low carb foods now, especially since my youngest son was diagnosed with diabetes. 
"Thanks for stopping by!" 
ciao, Claudia


I have been adapting older recipes and using whole wheat flour and less sugar. These whole wheat blueberry scones came out great unless you are a sugar fanatic but scones aren't sweet to begin with. These are tender and great with morning coffee or a cup a tea. I think as an afternoon snack they would awesome. 
They travel well if your on your way to work or a road trip. I made some topped with sugar and cinnamon and others totally plain. You pick your favorite fruits to top them during baking that you like. Any fruit you choose is awesome! Hope you like these whole wheat blueberry scones as much as we did!

Whole Wheat Blueberry Scone Recipe

2 cups whole wheat flour 
1 stick butter which equals half a cup
2 tablespoons sugar ( use stevia or splenda around 2 teaspoons for lower carbs)
1 egg yolk ( save egg white for brushing the tops)
3/4 cup buttermilk ( you can  substitute any milk or heavy cream with 1 tablespoons vinegar added let it sit 10 minutes)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

Any fresh diced fruits or dried fruits can be used, (around 1/2 cup) for the tops.  I have used blueberry, raspberry, apricots, peaches, apples and mango. They all work out great!

Optional: sprinkle tops with granulated sugar and cinnamon after brushed with leftover egg white.

Directions:
Place the dry ingredients in a bowl and add the butter using a pastry blender or fork to blend. Add the buttermilk and egg yolk until the dough is formed. Roll out cut into triangular wedges. ( I press in the fruit of choice on the top after I cut the wedges.) Brush with whites of egg. Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon mixture if using.

Bake on preheated oven 375 degrees for around 25 minutes or until the edges start to brown.
