My family loves scones, but traditional recipes contain excessive fat and calories. After lots of experimentation, I came up with this alternative recipe. The effort is well worth the delicious flavor, amazing texture and nutrient density of these scones. —Gail D'Urso, Carlisle, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 cup dried blueberries or raisins
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) plain yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons fat-free milk, divided
  • Coarse sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°. In a large bowl, whisk the first six ingredients. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oats and blueberries. In another bowl, whisk yogurt and 1 tablespoon milk until blended; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened.
Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 10 times. Divide dough in half; pat each into a 7-in. circle. Cut each into eight wedges. Place wedges on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Brush tops with remaining milk. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 16 scones
