I love scones but I kind of feel bad when I make them with regular white flour, so I decided to make some that are a lot healthier, with 100% whole wheat flour and a bunch of good for you seeds and grains. This are the ones that I use, I got both kinds at Trader Joe’s.
With this recipe you will be able to make 6 regular size scones, if you’d like to make 12, simply double the ingredients. Also you can totally skip the sugar if you’d like them sugar free… It won’t affect the consistency of the dough.
This are the ingredients you’ll need:
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons of seed mix (the sky is the limit, add whichever ones you prefer)
6 tablespoons chilled butter cut into small cubes
1/4 cup buttermilk (substitutes: regular milk, almond milk, etc…) plus 2 tablespoons to brush the tops.
hemp seeds for sprinkling on top of the scones
In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients but the seeds and grains. Add the butter and incorporate it with your fingers until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Add the grains and seed mix of your choice and then the buttermilk. With your hands incorporate until dough forms. Do not over mix.
Then on a floured surface form a log and cut the scones shapes. Brush the tops with the extra buttermilk and sprinkle the hemp seeds on top of each scone.
Bake at 400 F for about 15-18 minutes or until golden ground.
Cool in a cooling rack. (if you can wait)
