Spinach Scones

2 and ¼ whole wheat flour

1 tsp salt (or less)
¼ cup butter (55 g)
1 cup cooked chopped spinach
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup grated cheese

Preheat oven to 375 F and place rack in middle of oven. grease a cookie sheet.
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients including melted butter until the dough comes together. Do not over mix the dough. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and pat the dough into a circle that is about size of a plate.
Cut the circle in half, then cut each half into four pie-shaped wedges (triangles). Place the scones on the baking sheet. Bake the scones about 15 – 18 minutes or until nicely browned. Transfer to a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve them warm. On the photo scones are made with whole wheat flour but they can also be made with all purpose flour or the mixture of half white and half whole wheat. Makes 8 scones

  1. These are great! I did half whole oat flour and half whole wheat. Added 1 tsp of thyme and one tsp of black pepper. This will be my breakfast next week. Thank you!
