Blueberry Scones

These scones are relatively healthy at 170 calories per scone (based on equal sizes - which I don't always cut).  They have fruit and grains which are hard to get into our regular diets sometimes.  This recipe comes from Sparkpeople.com.

Ingredients:

1 3/4 c. all purpose flour
1 c. rolled oats
1/4 cup granulated sugar ( or splenda )
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 cup low fat milk
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 egg white
1 c. fresh blueberries




Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, comine flour, oats, sugar and baking powder.  In another bowl, stir together milk, oil and egg white.  Add liquid mixture and blueberries to dry mix bowl and stir until just moistened.

On a lightly floured surface, knead dough 10 - 12 times.  Roll dough (or press with your hands) to 3/4 inch thickness.  Cut dough into 12 slices and place on a lightly greased or baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown.  Cool on a wire rack.  Best served warm.

ENJOY!

They look delicious. Olive oil instead of butter though, huh. I like the healthiness of that; and you know me and scones. I'll need to give these a try! Thanks for sharing.

Hi Richard, my husband loves scones and these look amazing. I have never passed on the butter before and will now give it a try. I like that these sweet treats have fruit and fiber. Thanks for sharing.
