Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour I used 1 1/2 AP flour and 1/2 whole wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon aluminum free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/4 cup non-fat yogurt not Greek
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon sugar for topping

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 convection or 400 conventional.
  • Combine dry ingredients. 1 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, one tablespoon aluminum-free baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, one teaspoon salt, and three tablespoons sugar.
  • Add 1 1/4 cup non-fat yogurt (not Greek) and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Mix until all incorporated.
  • Add one cup blueberries. Frozen is fine. Fold in until well distributed.
  • Lightly dust a baking mat with flour. Place dough in the middle of the pad. With lightly flour-dusted hands form into an 8-inch disk.
  • Cut into 8 wedges and then separate them on the pad for some expansion space.
  • Lightly dust with one tablespoon sugar.
  • Transfer baking mat to the baking tray. Bake until golden brown. About 18 minutes for me.
  • Move to cooling rack but excellent served warm.

Notes

Flour has a very small amount fat in it. Due to the flour, there is 0.375 grams per serving and the FDA calls that zero. While on the subject of flour, I used 25% whole wheat to get to the texture I wanted and add a little nutty taste. Also do not over mix the dough and if it is dry, it needs a little more yogurt or a little milk.
If you want a little "fluffier" the use 100% all purpose flour but it will still be firmer. The texture will be more "heavy" than a normal scone. If you want flaky then you will need a different recipe.
