Recently, my hubby became a huge fan of scones. He started buying some scones from a bakery store and while they were not bad at all (obviously), I decided I could do better AND healthier. 😉 Now, I have never made scones before but as you might have guessed from reading my other posts, I am never one to shy away from a challenge. For a first attempt, they came out quite delicious if I do say so myself.

Ingredients:

  •  1 cup semi-sweet dark chocolate chips
  • 1 ½ cup all purpose flour 
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil 
  • ½ cup sour cream 
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 1/2 tbsp raw honey 
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp Salt    

 

  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • In a large bowl combine, all dry ingredients.Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Add the oil and sour cream, eggs and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
  • Using your hand, shape about 2 tablespoons of dough into a round kind of shape.
  • Place on cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until outer edges are golden.
  • Let them cool 
  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Makes about 10 yummy scones
