Skinny Chocolate Chip scones

It's really quite fun baking with Peighton.
She's an excellent egg cracker, dumper, and mixer.
And we talk about math while we bake too!

Today we tried out some Chocolate Chip Scones we found on Pinterest.
We love scones.
Peighton has hot chocolate with hers!

The recipe is from Skinny Taste
There are quite a few other recipes on there I want to try as well!

Skinny Chocolate Chip Scones

  • 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.

    Peighton just gave them "100 thumbs up."
    She's into the number 100 right now...
