Strawberry Chia Scones - Gluten Free
- 1 Package of Pamela’s Products Biscuit & Scone Mix or your favorite scone mix.
- 8 Tablespoons of Butter or Butter Alternative (Earth Balance), Cold
- 1/3 Cup Wholesome Sweetener Organic Sugar
- 1 Cup Almond Milk
- 3/4 Cup Fresh Strawberries, Diced
- 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Chia Seeds
Follow directions on package – however, when mixing in the fresh fruit, mix by hand to prevent the fruit from becoming over mixed.Place rack in top third of oven and pre-heat oven to 375°. Combine dry mix and sugar. Using a stand mixer with paddle attachment or pastry blender, cut in butter until pea-sized crumbs are formed. Add milk. Add strawberries and chia seeds, mix until well incorporated. Take two large spoons and scoop scones onto a prepared baking sheet (either greased or parchment lined.) You can sprinkle the top with a little bit of sugar before baking if you wish. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown on top. Cool slightly and enjoy.
