Fresh Banana, Blueberry Oat & Flax Scones

I absolutely loves scones and there is one restaurant in the city that was my go-to spot for scones until I started baking my own healthier version!  I played around with the ingredients in this recipe for a while until finally achieving this fantastic consistency and flavor minus a bunch of added sugar and glazes.  I was also excited to find that these scones were just as perfect using gluten-free all purpose flour, making totally gluten free!

My baked scones are perfect for breakfast including heart healthy flax and oats, potassium rich bananas and antioxidant loaded blueberries! Not only are these scones low sugar but they get a protein boost with the addition of greek yogurt. Does it get any better? Give this recipe a try and your taste buds will not be disappointed.

1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour

1/4 cup finely ground flaxseed

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons of brown sugar

6 ½ tablespoons of cold butter

¾ cup 2% Greek yogurt

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  5. In a separate bowl, combine Greek yogurt and vanilla extract
  6. Add liquid to the dry ingredients and blend until combined but do not overmix. Fold in the blueberries and bananas
