1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup nonfat milk (or milk of choice)
1 teaspoon lemon zest (about the zest of one lemon)
1 cup strawberries, washed, cored and sliced into about 6 pieces each
3/4 cup fresh blueberries, washed and destemmed
1/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips or dark chocolate chunks
Optional: 1 teaspoon brown sugar and/or 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together both flours, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the butter, and using your clean hands, combine the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbles.
In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and lemon zest. Add to the batter, and combine well (likely you will need to use your hands again). Add the strawberries, blueberries, and chocolate. Mix gently and combine into a ball, though some of the fruit will remain in the bowl (this is okay, as we will add the extra shortly). Place on the prepared baking sheet and pat into an 8-inch round. Add any extra bits of fruit from the mixing bowl (yes, kinda messy, so just do your best). Option to sprinkle with brown sugar for a little crunch, and cinnamon. Cut into 8 wedges and using a narrow spatula (and/or, those clean hands again) separate the wedges by about 1 inch, so they do not spread together when baking. Place the tray in preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool and serve. Makes 8 scones, and 8 -16 servings if you are sharing😎.
