Yield: 8 scones

Prep time: 10 minutes

Bake time: 17 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 tbsp raw sugar
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp fine ground sea salt
  • ¼ cup cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • ½ cup + 1 tbsp fat-free milk
  • 2 tbsp dark chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, 2 tablespoons of the sugar, the cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter.
  3. Use a pastry blender or two knives to cut the butter into the dough until all the ingredients are combined and the butter is evenly distributed in pea-size pieces.
  4. Stir in the milk. Add the chocolate chips. Knead the ingredients into a thick dough until all ingredients are combined.
  5. Place the dough on a greased baking sheet or a baking sheet covered with a silicone mat. Shape it into a flat, 6-inch circle. Sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon of sugar over the dough, and press it in gently. Use a pastry cutter or a knife to cut the circle into 8 equal wedges.
  6. Leave the wedges intact and the scone dough in the circle, and bake for 15 to 17 minutes until the center is firm.
  7. Let cool for 2 to 3 minutes, and then use the pastry cutter or knife to retrace the cuts to separate the scones into wedges. Serve warm or at room temperature.
