Blueberry scones are a delicious pastry that are perfect for breakfast or a midday snack. The scones are made with a buttery, crumbly dough that is studded with juicy, plump blueberries.
I’ve been trying to include a list of substitutes that you can use if you don’t have a certain ingredient or other flavors you can try. Fresh fruit or frozen fruit will help keep the scones lower points. Adding any kind of dried fruit or chocolate will make the points skyrocket so I do not recommend adding those.
Scones are a difficult food to “lower the points” because they’re mostly made of flour and butter. Just a reminder that it is OK to have these things on WW just have common sense about it and not eat an entire batch of scones all in one day! Store them in airtight containers to keep them fresh longer.
Here is the basic rundown of what is needed for this dish. I’ve also included substitutes that can be used if you do not have any of these items.
- Flour - Self Rising flour can be subbed out for all-purpose flour. Just leave out the baking powder since it is already in self-rising flour!
- Sugar - Or regular granulated sugar, I do not use sugar substitutes in any of my recipes but if you know the conversions feel free to do so
- Blueberries - If you don’t like blueberries try strawberries, blackberries, or chocolate chips.
- Butter - If you can find light butter that is ok to use as well.
- Buttermilk - Don’t have buttermilk? Add some lemon juice to the milk and let the milk sit for a while. Easy buttermilk!
- See the recipe card below for a full list of ingredients and measurements.
How to make Blueberry Scones
Step 1: Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
Step 3: Mix in butter until mixture is the size of fine crumbs. Stir in buttermilk and then stir in berries.
Step 4: Shape dough into 1 7-inch circle on a prepared baking sheet. Cut each circle into 8 wedges and coat with cooking spray.
Recipe Tip: You can also whisk together an egg to make an egg wash. Then brush it on top of the scones. This part is optional.
Bake until cooked through and golden, about 20 minutes. Yields one wedge per serving. Makes 8 scones.
Best Baking Tips
- Room temperature butter is key, let it sit out on the counter for a couple of hours before baking.
- Read the recipe over a few times before baking or look up videos to see how it’s done properly.
- Get an Oven Thermometer - Not every oven is the same. Keep an oven thermometer inside to make sure the oven is at the proper temperature. Wondering why your cookies or baked goods didn’t get done? This might be the reason why.
- Don’t peek at whatever is baking in the oven! This lets out warm air.
- Always combine the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl and the dry ingredients in another bowl. Slowly incorporate them together.
