Whole wheat spinach cheddar scones are fluffy, tender and easy to make – perfect for breakfast or brunch!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut in small pieces
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon onion, finely chopped or grated
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I use skim)
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt and stir to mix well.
  3. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or two knives, until the mixture resembles small peas.
  4. Add cheese, spinach, onion and milk and stir until just combined.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured service and use your hands to shape it into a large round disk, about 1 inch thick and 8 inches in diameter.
  6. Cut into 8 even triangles and arrange on the baking sheet, leaving some room between each scone.
  7. Brush the tops of each scone with the melted butter. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired.
  8. Bake at 425 for 14-16 minutes, until scones are cooked through and tops are a light golden brown.
