3 1/2 Cups All purpose flour
1/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Baking powder
10 Tablespoons Unsalted butter, cold and cubed
1 Whole Egg
1 Egg white
1/2 Cup Yogurt
1/2 Cup milk
1/8 Cup Flax seed
1 Cup Blueberries, fresh or dried
2/3 Cup Walnuts
Zest of 1/2 Orange
Crystal Sugar, for topping
You can use low fat, plain yogurt or low fat buttermilk instead of the applesauce if you wish.
It's not always easy to find fresh blueberries so I made the recipe with frozen, unsweetened blueberries.
Be sure to not overwork the dough because it will become tough.
You can use more whole wheat flour and less white flour if you desire. It still tastes great either way.
Add flour, sugar, baking powder, flax seed and salt to a large bowl and stir together with a clean dry whisk.
Add butter cubes to the flour and work with the hands, rubbing together until mixture resembles cornmeal and butter is smaller than a pea.
In a separate bowl, mix egg, egg white, yogurt and milk.
Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour the milk and eggs into the well.
Using a pastry spatula or large rubber spatula gently combine the flour into the milk just until it comes together.
Add fruit and nuts and hand mix gently.
Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into two separate sections.
Shape gently into balls and press each into discs about 5/8 inch thick.
Cut the discs just like pie into even triangular sections.
Place scones on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Brush each with egg wash (1 egg yoke & 1 tablespoon water, dash of salt) and sprinkle with crystal sugar.
Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown.
Serving Size: Makes 16 wedges. 1 wedge = 1 scone = 1 serving
