Fat-Free Blueberry Scones


Fat-Free Blueberry Scones
.
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup + 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons white whole wheat flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • zest of one lemon
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1-1/4 cup nonfat organic milk
  • extra virgin olive oil cooking spray (optional)
  • coarse sugar


DIRECTIONS

  1. Whisk the flours, baking powder, salt, sugar, and zest together in a large bowl.
  2. Mix in blueberries and form a well in the center of the dry ingredients.
  3. Pour the milk and lemon juice in the well.
  4. Work in the dry ingredients from the edges, careful not to overmix.
  5. If dough is too sticky, add more flour, a tablespoon at a time.
  6. Form dough into a round about 1-1/2 inches thick.
  7. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and place the scone circle in the freezer.
  8. When oven reaches temperature, remove the scones, cut into 8 triangles, separate, spray with olive oil, and sprinkle with sugar.
  9. Bake the scones for 14 minutes. Then place under the broiler on high for approximately 1 minute, watching carefully. This will brown the tops and burst the blueberries, providing for a more buttery flavor.
  10. Remove, cool slightly, and eat!
