TOTAL TIME :18minutes15minutes10minutes
  • 4 tablespoons refrigerated butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups spelt flour (sub whole wheat pastry, all-purpose or GF all-purpose)
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2-3/4 cups plain full fat yogurt (can use any kind as long as its plain)
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with nonstick parchment paper.
  2. Cut butter into small 1/4 inch cubes. Place in a small bowl back in the refrigerator. In another small bowl, whisk together applesauce and vanilla extract. Set aside (room temp is fine).
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and sea salt.
  4. Working quickly, use clean fingers to pinch the cold butter with the dry mixture, breaking the butter down into small pieces. Stir in the applesauce/vanilla extract, which should create a crumbly, ragged looking texture.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips. Starting with 1/2 cup, stir in yogurt just until the dough starts to come together. You don’t want it to be a wet dough; there should still be some dry bits that don’t stick.
  6. Turn dough out onto baking sheet and knead gently a few times, just folding the dough in on itself. Form dough into a disk, approximately 8 inches wide and 1 1/2 inches tall. Using a sharp knife, slice disk into 8 wedges. If using, brush with a thin layer of almond milk and sprinkle on cacao nibs.
  7. Bake scones for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow scones to cool at least 10 minutes before separating into wedges.

    What type of yogurt did you use? It’s missing in the ingredients list!

    • You are absolutely right! I just fixed it :). Thank you!

  • Debbie

    Could you use buckwheat flour?

    • Hi Debbie 🙂 I haven’t tried it so I’m not positive, but I think it would work! It will be a darker, denser scone but buckwheat and chocolate is a lovely combination! Let me know how it goes if you try!

    Could you sub almond or coconut flour?

    • Almond flour might work, but I’m not totally sure. If you’re looking for a gluten-free option, I’d use half buckwheat half gluten-free all purpose. If you’re looking for grain free, you can try blanched almond flour, I just can’t vouch for it!
