Wheat - Oats Blueberry Scones

Got this recipe from site. This recipe is adapted from the fantastic Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison. All the recipes in the blog are good and the way the author writes is very impressive. I read the site for almost 2 complete hours. It's one of the best cooking sites I have visited so far. It inspired to eat something healthy. I have made few changes to the original recipe. I added only milk without adding any yogurt.

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons brown sugar (dark or light)
1 teaspoon grated ginger
7 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup milk (lowfat is OK)
1 egg
2 tablespoons yogurt or milk
1 teaspoon high-quality vanilla extract
1 cup frozen blueberries tossed in 1 teaspoon flour
1 cup rolled oats


1. Preheat your oven to 425ºF. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat, with parchment, or spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, 1/2 cup oats, baking powder, salt, brown sugar, and ginger.
3. Cut the butter into the flour mixture using a pastry blender, two knives, or your fingers.
4. In a small bowl, whisk together the milk, the egg, the yogurt (or additional milk), and the vanilla extract.
5. Add the liquid mixture to the flour-butter mixture, and stir until just combined. Stir in the blueberries.
6. Make round balls of the dough and coat them with Oats and place it in the baking sheet
7. Bake the scones for 12-15 minutes, or until they are light golden brown. Serve warm.

Health Quotient:
Blueberries are packed with antioxidants. Oats are a good source of dietary fiber. Eating oats makes you feel fuller and less hungry. It eventually leads to weight loss.
