When you're looking for a sweet but not-so-sweet treat, look to the scone! Mr. Geek is a big fan of these flaky, biscuit-like goodies, so I made him a batch today because he wasn't feeling so well.
These are delicious any time of day, with a cup of coffee, tea, milk or just plain. And since they're low in sugar and fat, you don't have to feel entirely guilty about eating one. Or two.
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1/8 cup granulated sugar + extra for sprinkling
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup vanilla or blueberry yogurt
3 tbsp canola oil
1/2 cup frozen blueberries (or other berries)
1 tbsp milk
1/4-1/3 cup of powdered sugar
food coloring, if desired
Transfer these onto an oiled pan. If you're not making a glaze, you could sprinkle these with a bit of granulated sugar. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
