Carnberry Orange Scones

 

Start the day off right with a healthy breakfast, even if you are in a hurry. Make ahead of time, for a grab and go healthy breakfast treat or they can be made in less than 30 minutes.

The tangy tartness of the cranberries paired up with the zest of orange makes this a winner for breakfast or even as a sweet healthy dessert.

 Ingredients

3/4 cup Fat Free Milk (*Smart Balance® Fat Free Milk and Omega-3s)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp orange zest
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
Non-Stick Cooking Spray (*Smart Balance® Non-Stick Cooking Spray)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp chilled Butter alternative or Margarine sticks (*Smart Balance® Blended Butter Sticks)
1 cup dried cranberries
1 egg, white only (lightly beaten)
1 1/2 tbsp sugar

 Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375 F°. Combine the first five ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Spray baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

Combine the flours, baking powder and salt, in a large bowl, mixing well. Cut in chilled butter or margarine with a pastry knife, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gently fold in dried cranberries. Add milk mixture, stirring just until moist. Be careful not to over mix.

Place the dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly four times with floured hands. Form dough into an 8-inch circle onto baking sheet, flattening to about 3/4” thick. Using a knife, gently cut the dough into 10 wedges (do not cut all the way through). Brush the egg white over the dough and sprinkle evenly with sugar. Bake until golden, about 25-28 minutes, depending on your oven.

Serve warm. Makes 10 scones.
