Wheat Scones

Herbalife Cranberry Wheat Scones


This recipe came from the Herbalife Today magazine (Winter/Spring 2014). Click HERE for a link to the magazine. I was hesitant to try the recipe due to the 1/2 c of olive oil it calls for. I thought the olive oil would make the scones taste funny and I didn’t want to lose any of my precious F1 shake mix in the process.

This lower fat, lower calorie version of the classic scone is not intended as a meal replacement. However it gets a protein boost from the addition of Formula 1 Healthy Meal shake mix.

INGREDIENTS (for 14 to 16 scones):

4 oz. Formula 1 French Vanilla shake mix
2 cups flour
1 ¾ cups wheat flour
3 tablespoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup light brown sugar
4 tablespoons unsalted butter (cut into pieces)
cup extra virgin olive oil
1 ¼ cups non-fat or low-fat milk
1 cup cranberries

Directions: Mix the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, and Formula 1 French Vanilla shake mix at low speed. Slowly add the butter and olive oil, and mix until coarse and sandy. Add (1 cup) milk to the mixture, and fold in cranberries. Add the remaining milk to moisten (¼ cup). Do not over mix! Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough 10 times. Scoop to form 2 ½ inch balls (size of ice cream scoop). Transfer to an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 20 minutes (until light golden brown).
