Skinny Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Scones


Skinny Chocolate Chip Buttermilk Scones


Buttermilk scones sweetened just to perfection studded with chocolate chips. Kind of like eating a giant chocolate chip cookie for breakfast… without the guilt.


3/4 cup cold buttermilk

1/4 cup sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 large egg

1 cup all purpose flour (Bob’s Red Mill)

1 cup white whole wheat flour (Bob’s Red Mill)

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

3 tbsp chilled butter (must be cold) cut into small pieces

3/4 cup chocolate chips

cooking spray

1 large egg white, lightly beaten

1 1/2 tbsp sugar


Preheat oven to 375°.

Combine the first four ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk.

Spray baking sheet with cooking spray.

Combine flour, baking powder, salt, in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Cut in chilled butter with a pastry blender, or you could use 2 knives, until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

Gently fold in chocolate chips. Add milk mixture, stirring just until moist.

Place dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly four times with floured hands.

Form dough into an 9-inch circle onto baking sheet, about 3/4″ thick.

Using a knife, cut dough into 12 wedges all the way through.

Brush egg white over dough and sprinkle evenly with sugar.

Bake until golden, about 18-20 minutes, depending on your oven. Serve warm.
