Most scones are loaded with fat, but not these. From Prevention® Healthy Cooking.

Ingredients

2
cups Gold Medal™ unbleached or all-purpose flour
1
tablespoon baking powder
1
teaspoon ground cardamom or coriander
1/2
teaspoon salt
2
tablespoons sugar
1
tablespoon canola or soybean oil
3
egg whites
1/2
cup (4 oz) Yoplait® original plain or 99% fat-free lemon burst yogurt
1
tablespoon grated lemon peel
1
tablespoon sugar

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Coat baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • 2 In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cardamom or coriander, salt, and the 2 tablespoons sugar. Drizzle with oil and mix with fork until evenly distributed.
  • 3 Reserve 1 tablespoon egg whites.
  • 4 Stir yogurt, lemon peel, and remaining egg whites into flour mixture. Stir gently with fork until mixture holds together. Turn onto lightly floured surface. Knead about 8 strokes to mix dough thoroughly. Pat out dough to form 8-inch circle. With sharp knife, cut evenly into 8 wedges. Arrange wedges, about 1 inch apart, on prepared baking sheet. Brush with reserved egg whites. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar. Bake 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Tips  

Egg whites provide the protein from eggs but don't contain the cholesterol found in egg yolks. That's good news for your heart.

To keep the fat and calories down even further, serve with all-fruit strawberry preserves instead of butter or margarine.
