Every time we go to Starbucks, we always want to eat their scones but look at the calories and decide against it so it inspired us to attempt to make our own at home and we came up with multiple recipes but I’ll share my favorite first.
What you’ll need:
3/4 cup low fat buttermilk
1/2 cup coconut
1 scrambled egg white
1/4 cup sugar
Sugar to sprinkle on top
Honey to drizzle
2.5 cups of flour made from whole grain oats
1.5 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp chopped creamy chilled unsalted butter
1 cup peanut butter milk chocolate chips
3 tsp vanilla
Recipe (makes 10 scones):
Preheat oven to 375. Combine buttermilk, 1 egg, 3 tbsp vanilla, 1/4 cup sugar in a medium bowl. Grind oats to make 2.5 cups of flour. Pour into medium bowl. Add 1.5 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt. Add butter and cut into dry mixture. Add 1/2 cup of coconut. Fold in 1 cup peanut butter milk chocolate chips. Add in milk mixture. Combine. You might need to add in more oat flour until the mixture turns into dough. Grease a baking sheet. Take the ball of dough and press onto baking sheet, making a circle with desired thickness. Cut with a knife into triangles of desired size, we made 10. Brush on egg white. Drizzle with honey. Sprinkle with sugar. Cook until bottom of scones are golden brown. About 15-20 minutes. Serve hot.
We’ve also made this recipe with dark chocolate chips, coconut, and cranberry with a mango glaze and maple glaze. To make a glaze, simply heat a small pan, add milk, confectioners sugar, and mango puree, or maple syrup. The liquid ingredients should be less than the confectioners sugar. Stir until fully blended and of a thicker consistency.
