Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Scones

 

As promised here, I give you Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Scones.

 

The first batch I made with some vegan carob chips.

I’ve never tried carob chips before…and the nieve person in me thought that they would taste exactly like chocolate chips. Nope. They don’t. They’ve definitely got a different taste. It’s sort of bitter and doesn’t have that warm and fuzzy chocolate taste that I know and love. πŸ˜‰

The carob chip scones were still good…but the chocoholic that I am always led my hand to grab a chocolate chip one. πŸ˜‰

 

 

These thinner scones were from the batch of carob chip scones. I think I made the circle a little to big before slicing. Be sure to just shape the dough into a 6″-8″ circle. That way, they’ll be nice and thick. Mmm! πŸ™‚

 

 

Well, go make yourself some chocolate chip scones. You will love them! And you can be like me and microwave any leftover scones for a couple of seconds and enjoy with a cup of coffee and peanut butter for spreading! πŸ˜‰

Ahh, peanut butter and chocolate, you never fail me. πŸ˜€

  • 3 tablespoons cane sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into tiny pieces (1/4 inch or smaller cubes)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used vegan chips for a change)

How-To

  1. Preheat oven to 425Β°.

  8. Brush with water and sprinkle the tops with raw sugar.

  1. HI πŸ™‚ I’ve been reading your blog and looking at your recipes for a couple weeks. Last week I finally made the wicked healthy carrot cake muffins (totally delicious) and today I made these scones!!! I added a tbsp of orange peel before mixing in the butter and I mixed 2 tbsp sugar with 1 tbsp orange peel for the sugar topping. They are absolutely FANTASTIC!! I love your blog, your healthy (and not so healthy haha) options for baking are just wonderful. Thank you!!

    1. Aww, that was so nice of you Caitlin! Thank you so muchhhhh! You totally just made my day. Gotta love having a balance of healthy and not so healthy! πŸ˜‰ I can’t wait to hear how your other baking explorations go! πŸ™‚ Happy Baking!

  2. I’ve tried to adapt several scone recipes to 100% whole wheat and these were by far the best!! I linked to your recipe today since I shared it on my blog. I’m going to try your Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce today – it looks soooo good!!

  3. Just made for my family. Turned out great! May add a little more sugar to sweeten slightly as that was the only thing commented on by my testers, aka husband and son:)

    1. Yay! So happy to hear that, Mel! May I suggest spreading a little Nutella on it. Yum. πŸ™‚ Thank you for your feedback!
