Skinny Strawberry Scones

What is it about Skinny Strawberry Scones? I had about fifty. How’d this start? This past weekend, my mom threw a bridal shower for her best friend’s daughter. I walked into a feast of sparkling wine, cake balls and scones. So many scones, everywhere scones. And these scones were the best scones I’ve ever had – which says a lot, because I adore them. I was shocked to find out they were out of a pre-made mix from World Market. Maybe I shouldn’t have been so surprised, because World Market is the bomb, but I was surprised, and while being surprised, I continued to stuff my face with those raspberry dreamboats!

Waking up the next day, I was inspired. I needed to make awesome, crumbly, moist scones. Skinny Strawberry Scones, to be specific. I needed them to be low in calories so no one would feel guilty eating the entire batch – I know I didn’t feel too guilty 😉 Since I didn’t have raspberries around, I went with strawberries.

Skinny Strawberry Scones

Yield: 8 Mini Scones

Serving Size: 1 Mini Scone

Calories per serving: 30

Ingredients

  • Scone Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup pastry flour (165 calories - if using whole wheat pastry flour, you may want to increase cottage cheese by one tablespoon)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder (2 calories)
  • 1 tablespoon Truvia
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tablespoons fat-free cottage cheese (34 calories)
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (4 calories)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (12 calories)
  • 1/4 cup fresh or frozen strawberries (20 calories)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Mix all dry ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl (exclude strawberries).
  3. Add each wet ingredient into the mix, one-by-one, stirring well after each addition (exclude strawberries).
  4. Measure your strawberries and, if frozen, pop them in the microwave for approximately 15 seconds. Mush strawberries and spoon into the mix.
  5. Stir your batter well and pour finished product into a small, circular oven pan, approximately 6 inches in diameter. Consider using non-stick foil for this project. Simply wrap your foil around the base of a circular vase (or something of desired size and shape), removing your foil so that it resembles a baking pan. This will be easy upon removal, as you can simply pull the sides off of scones and serve immediately.
  6. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes, or until scones appear nice and golden brown and are firm in the middle.
  7. Remove and allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
  8. Carefully take scones out of circular pan and divide into 8 evenly-sized scones.
  9. At only 30 calories each, enjoy as many as you'd like! Consider spreading with SGS's Cream Cheese Frosting! I spread mine with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, "Lite."
