Ingredients
 

Blueberry Scones:

  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup oat milk, (or 2%, whole milk, or almond milk if needed)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • ¾ cup plain Greek yogurt, I used 2% Fage (you could use 5% too)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp lemon zest, about 2 lemons
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 2 tbsp coarse sugar, optional for sprinkling on top before baking

Lemon Glaze (optional)

  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp hot milk (oat milk, cow’s milk, or almond milk), microwave for about 30 seconds until hot

  • 3 - 4 Tbsp lemon juice, 1 large lemon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Make healthy buttermilk: Whisk together the oat milk and lemon juice. Let it let sit for at least 5 minutes while you prepare the rest.
  • Prepare Dough: In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together. Add cubed butter and cut it into the flour with a pastry cutter or squeeze each piece of butter with your fingers. You want varying-sized pieces (some large and some pea-sized). If at any time it feels warm, pop the dough into to fridge for 5 minutes.
  • Once butter is cut in, add the greek yogurt, honey, oat milk buttermilk mixture, blueberries, and lemon zest. Mix the dough with a rubber spatula, folding all of the ingredients into the dough. Be careful not to burst any blueberries. The dough should be shaggy with some dry flour at the bottom of the bowl. Dump onto a lightly floured surface and gently bring everything together in one dough ball. Flatten the dough into a circle. Don’t press too hard. Then, cut in half and stack both halves on top of each other.
  • Make Scones: Smush your halves down into a circle. And flatten this circle to about 1.5 - 2 inches in thickness. Cut into 8 equal triangles (See picture in the post above for reference). Lay on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Brushed with oat milk and sprinkled some coarse sugar on top.
  • Bake: Bake for 22 - 25 minutes, until the tops are golden and the inside is done and fluffy.
  • Optional Glaze: While the scones cool, make the optional lemon glaze by mixing together all the ingredients - if it is too thin add 2 - 4 tbsp more powdered sugar. Drizzle over the scones once they are COMPLETELY cooled. Enjoy!

Notes

Frozen Blueberries: Add frozen ones directly to the dough. Do not let them thaw to room temperature.
Oat Milk: Can use 2% or whole cow's milk.
Honey: You can use pure maple syrup too.
Storing: Store leftovers in airtight containers at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Reheating: Scones are delicious at room temperature; however, if you want to enjoy the warm, you can heat them in the microwave or in the oven. For best results, reheat unglazed scones in the oven at 350°F for 5 – 8 minutes until warm. You can also microwave them by wrapping them in a damp paper towel and heating them for 30 – 60 seconds until warm.
Freeze After Baking: Freeze baked scones by allowing them to cool to room temperature, then place them in a freezer-safe bag, and freeze for up to 2 months. When you are ready to enjoy them, let them thaw overnight in the fridge or microwave them for 30 – 60 seconds until warm.
