Whole Wheat Strawberry Chocolate Chunk Scones with Flaxseed!

For my weekly walk with one of my dear friends, I decided to make these to start our morning off on a sweet note and boy did it... YUM!  

I have to admit these were so easy and fast to make that I didn't feel that bad after I had to make it twice because the first time I made it, I accidently poured salt in place of the sugar (that is the first time I have ever done something like that!)  

However, it literally took less than 30 minutes from beginning to end so I decided to give it a second try and am very glad I did because these healthy scones were also DELICIOUS scones :)

Recipe adapted from skinny

  • 3/4 cup cold fat free buttermilk (or almond milk with 1 teaspoon of white vinegar)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup all purpose flour 
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour 
  • 1-2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp chilled butter or smart balance (must be cold) cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips or chunks
  • 1/2 cup diced strawberries
  • cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar


Preheat oven to 375°. Combine the first four ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray.

Combine flour, flaxseed, baking powder, in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Cut in chilled butter with a pastry blender, or you could use 2 knives, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gently fold in chocolate chips and diced strawberries. Add milk mixture, stirring just until moist.

Place dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly four times with floured hands. Form dough into an 9-inch circle onto baking sheet, about 3/4" thick. Using a knife or pizza cutter cut dough into 12 wedges all the way through.

Sprinkle evenly with sugar. Bake until golden, about 18-20 minutes, depending on your oven. Serve warm.
