Skinny Buttermilk Scones

Servings: 12 • Serving Size: 1 scone • Old Points: 4 pts • Points+: 5 pts
Calories: 199.6 • Fat: 8.1 g • Protein: 3.7 g • Carb: 29.8 g • Fiber: 2.3 g • Sugar: 12.8 g
Sodium: 257.4 mg


Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:
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.

Those scones are SO amazing. You’d think they were really sugary but it tasted like a pancake pastry.  So if you are going to make the recipe, make sure you follow the directions step by step and don’t add anything like more sugar. And eat them warm!!

My friend Jennifer and I went to a kickboxing class last night for the first time.

We had a lot of fun! I swear the instructor was saying the movements but was doing the wrong moves… LOL… because I felt like half of the time I was doing it wrong… until I looked at Jennifer to see what she was doing and she was doing the same moves as me. So I wasn’t going crazy.

It was our first time to do kickboxing at school and it was fun!! We didn’t use the equipment but we did a lot of squats, kicks, and punching of the air. I must say… we had fun. We had so much fun that we made that our Tuesday workouts together. Smile 

Does anyone even make any of the recipes I post on here?
