These scones/biscuits are perfect with chicken for dinner, too!

As most of you know, I’m not the world’s most prolific baker.  It’s not that I CAN’T, it’s just that I’ll EAT what I bake, so I don’t.  That being said, I do allow myself the occasional carb if i think it’s worthwhile.  And these definitely are.

Most people enjoy a sweet treat in the morning–studies show that is often because our blood sugar is low from the night before.  However, if you’re one of those people who doesn’t have that craving, these are perfect for you!  (There’s someone close to me who is like that, so now I’m prepared!).

I was procrastinating from writing something useful the other day by browsing the latest issue of Bon Appetit.  Being a healthy cook, I rarely see something I can make that doesn’t have 4,753 calories per serving or doesn’t contain cream in some form.  This recipe caught my eye because I knew I could make a few changes and they wouldn’t affect the outcome much.

I used whole wheat flour, which is heavier than all purpose white flour.  Consequently, they really didn’t rise, despite the baking powder.  I also used a tad less cream, substituting 1/2 C pea protein milk.  Still light and flaky!

I froze most of them after they cooled, otherwise, they’d be gone in 3 days.  They’re great with eggs for a nice brunch or use them as a side for broiled chicken.  Hmmmm…..turkey sliders anyone?  Ooh-how about with some tomato soup?  Winter’s coming….
