High Protein Snacks

St. George’s Day Recipe | Healthy Blueberry Scones


We made scones for this St. George’s Day with all the flavour but a fraction of the fat and calories you’d expect in classic scones. They also couldn’t be easier to make – no scone cutter required!

Tip: Mix your favourite protein powder into the Greek yoghurt filling for a protein boost!


Ingredients


For the scones:

✓ 180g whole wheat flour

✓ 2 tsp. baking powder

✓ Pinch salt

✓ 30g butter (cold)

✓ 3 tbsp. Myprotein Sugar-free Syrup (Vanilla flavour)

✓ 100ml Greek yoghurt (low fat)

✓ 4-6 drops Myprotein FlavDrops (Vanilla flavour)

✓ 50ml milk (of choice)

✓ 75g fresh blueberries

 

For the filling:

✓ 100g Greek yoghurt (low fat)

✓ 4-6 Myprotein FlavDrops (Vanilla flavour)

✓ 75g blueberries

Optional: Mix 1 scoop Myprotein Impact Whey Protein (Vanilla flavour) for a protein boost


Method


For the scones:

#1 Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C for fan-assisted

#2 In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt

#3 Next, cut the cold butter into cubes and using your fingertips to combine the butter with the flour mixture until it represents a crumbly texture

#4 Make a well in the mixture and add the milk, yoghurt, syrup, FlavDrops and blueberries, then combine the mixture with a spoon until smooth

#5 Place onto a lined baking tray and use your hands to make the dough circular, then use a butter knife to score the mixture into 8 segments before baking

#6 Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes or until golden brown, then allow to cool on a wire rack completely

For the filling:

#1 In a bowl, combine Greek yoghurt and FlavDrops, and if you’re looking to up your protein intake, add a scoop of protein powder

#2 Cut each in half horizontally, add yoghurt filling and some more fresh blueberries and enjoy!
