Do these look delicious or what?! Well, they are SO delicious. And I love them. And I want to be in a committed relationship with them. (Are we still talking about scones?? Haha) Buttt these scones are definitely a once-and-a-while treat yoself kind of thing.
I am admittedly not a huge baker, mostly because if I bake I just end up eating everything I bake. Usually I tell myself I am making the goodies to share with all my friends, and it’s the BIGGEST lie ever haha. (Friends, if you are wondering why you have never received any baked goods from me… this right here would be why lol.)
But anyways, I do like baking every once and a while! There are things you can do and ingredients you can sub-out to make your treat a little healthier. This recipe was originally sourced from a blog called Roti N’ Rice. The original recipe had a lottt of butter in it so I made a more Skinny Belle version below.
What’s In it:
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking power
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- ½ cup sour cream
- 1 cup chopped strawberries
Start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees farenheight. Now, combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add in your coconut oil, and mix with a fork so that the flour is a chunky mixture and the oil is evenly spread. Gently mix in those strawberries! Combine milk and sour cream in a small bowl until smooth, and then pour into the large bowl and gently combine. Use your hands to shape the dough into balls that are just a bit smaller than the size of your first, and place out on a greased baking sheet (<– use coconut oil for this!) Bake for 15 mins! Voila!
Now when you pull these warm, delicious, bundles of joy out of the oven, you too will probably want to be in a committed relationship with them. Haha! But be good, everyone. Just have one (ok maybe two ;)) then wrap up the scones and share the love with all your besties. It is the holidays after all!
Enjoy the treat, you deserve it! <3
