Savory, cheesy, and delectable scones.
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¾ cup coconut oil, softened
  • 1½ cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons organic milk
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Combine flours, parsley, baking powder, basil and garlic salt in medium bowl; cut in coconut oil with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1 cup cheese. Stir in sour cream, milk and eggs just until moistened.
  2. Turn dough onto floured surface; knead until smooth (1 minute). Divide dough in half. For each half, roll out or pat out dough with floured hands into 8-inch circle. Cut each circle into 8 wedges.
  3. Place wedges 1 inch apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes. Sprinkle wedges with remaining cheese. Continue baking for 4 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
If you don't have any coconut oil on hand, butter will work just fine.
