I forgot how much that I love scones until I made these. I love scones because they are not overly sweet, and they are basically like biscuits. Who doesn't love biscuits? I've gotten to the point where I don't believe in food restrictions, so eating baked goods is the usual for me. But what I do believe in, is making healthier versions of the baked goods that I do love. I incorporated some prebiotic muesli by Freedom Foods into these scones, and it gave them a nice flavor and texture. Prebiotics are essential to good gut health. Prebiotics basically give probiotics a place to live in our guts.
2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup muesli
1 stick of butter (cold)
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup nut milk
1 tsp vanilla
Coconut Cream Cheese Glaze
1/4 cup coconut butter
1/4 cup cream cheese bar (room temperature)
1 tbsp raw honey
1. Preheat your oven to 400 F. Place your stick of butter in the freezer. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and muesli in a large bowl.
2. In a separate bowl: Mix together the egg, maple syrup, greek yogurt, milk and vanilla until the ingredients are combined.
3. Remove your stick of butter from the freezer and dice it into cubes or grate it (yes, like cheese) into the flour mixture. The key is to get it incorporated really well into the flour.
4. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture, and mix with a spatula (or your hands) until a dough is formed. DO NOT OVER MIX.
5. Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and pat it into a circle (about 7 in"). Then cut the dough into triangles.
6. Place the scones on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about 2" apart. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
7. For the glaze: mix all of the ingredients together. Wait until the scones are cooled to add the glaze.
