Ingredients

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Scones

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup pastry flour
  • 3 tablespoons Truvía® Natural Sweetener
  • 2 tablespoons Truvía® Brown Sugar Blend
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cups milk nut milks or soy milks may be substituted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cold and cubed
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 egg whites mixed with a tablespoon of water

Maple Glaze

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk nut milks or soy milks may be substituted

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, pastry flour, Truvía® Natural Sweetener, Truvía® Brown Sugar Blend, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  • To the bowl with the dry ingredients, add the cold, cubed butter. Work the butter into the flour with your hands or a pastry cutter until coarse crumbles form. Stir the wet ingredients into the flour and butter mixture just until the dough comes together. You will want a soft, but firm dough. If you find that the dough is too firm, add a tablespoon of milk at a time until it is easier to work with. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour the dough out onto a generously floured work surface, and form into an 8x8inch circle. The circle should be quite thick. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the dough from the freezer and remove the plastic wrap. Place the dough on the prepared baking sheet, reforming the circular shape as needed. Cut the dough into 8 equal-sized wedges with a very sharp knife and space them apart so they don't overcrowd one another. Brush the egg wash onto each scone generously.
  • Bake the scones for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from heat and set aside to cool completely before you glaze them.
  • To make the glaze, whisk together the butter, syrup, confectioner's sugar and milk in a small bowl until smooth and creamy. If the glaze is too thick, add more milk until you reach the right consistency.
  • Drizzle the glaze on top of each scone, letting it set completely. This should happen almost instantaneously.
  • Serve the scones immediately with a cup of Bigelow Vanilla Chai Black Tea.
  • The scones may be stored in an airtight container for up to a week. Enjoy!

Notes

I like my scones a tad on the sweeter side, so adjust sweeteners to taste when you get to this step. Truvía® Natural Sweetener and Truvía® Brown Sugar Blend tend to be sweeter in taste than other sweeteners and sugars, so you normally would not need as much as you would need if using granulated sugar or brown sugar. Be sure to read the manufacturer's instructions for quantities before tackling this recipe.
