I have been craving scones lately, but did not want a treat high in fat or calories. I found this Weight Watcher's recipe for scones, and decided to use it as a base for an espresso flavored scone. They turned out to be a tasty breakfast treat. The scones were more soft and chewy than a typical scone because they were low fat, but they were full of flavor. It was hard to resist having more than one. I am going to have to play with the base recipe and create some more flavor combinations. Any suggestions?
Espresso Chocolate Chip Scones
2/3 cup quick oats
1/3 cup Reduced Fat Bisquick
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tsp instant espresso powder (use more if stronger taste is desired)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup skim milk
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Mix all the ingredients. Pour into a pie plate and bake at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. Let cool.
