The weekend is here which means it’s time for a sugary sweet treat in our house. With the sun shining and the weather a bit warmer I was craving a treat with a bit of lavender. Lavender is one of my favorite ingredients for sweet treats and it adds a subtle floral flavor to your food and makes the house smells amazing when baking.
My daughter was having a sleepover as well and I wanted to make a pretty treat that the girls could eat with a cup of tea while wearing adorable dress up clothes. Scones are super easy and quick to make and with only 3 tablespoon of sugar they aren’t sweet enough to make the kids act like wild things all night long.
I have a yogurt & milk scone recipe I usually use but since I had a bit of coconut milk left over from our valentines day dessert I decided to use it in place of milk to add a bit of flavor and yummies. This scone is super moist and even more so with the added berries. I guarantee these scones will go quickly, mine were almost gone before I could finish photographing them. Let me know what you think and I would LOVE to see your results!
What you need:
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1.5 tablespoons baking powder
- 3 tablespoons cane sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
- 1 cup berries (I used a bicture of raspberry, blackberry and blueberry)
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt, i like Nancy’s
- 1/2 cup coconut milk, I use native forest
- 1 tablespoon lavender
How to make it:
- preheat oven to 350
- Mix flour, baking powder and lavender together
- Cut butter into chunks and mix into flour with your hands
- Add berries and mix lightly until berries are completely covered in flour mixture
- mix yogurt and coconut milk together
- add into dough slowly, mixing with your hands until it is no longer sticky
- form into a ball and put on a floured surface and roll out to a 1/2 inch round
- cut into 8 triangle pieces
- Place on a greased baking sheet and cook at 300 for 15 minutes or until edges are brown
- These scones will feel a bit moist when you take them out the oven but will harden up once cooled
