20(ish)--- Greek Yogurt Chocolate Chip Scones

Are you making something special for the momma in your life this weekend?  Brunch is always a great option- who doesn't love to brunch?

These quick and easy (promise) scones have Greek yogurt in them to keep them soft and moist. Oh, and it keeps them on the lighter side and boosts their protein content as well!

Greek Yogurt Chocolate Chip Scones
Makes 16-18 scones

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Dash salt
1/4 cup cold butter, chopped
3/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add butter and use a pastry cutter (or your fingers) to combine until a coarse sand-like dough is formed.  Stir in Greek yogurt and mix until slightly moistened.  Add in chocolate chips and fold until incorporated.

Use your hands to knead the dough 4-5 times in the bowl (incorporate any dry bits in the process).  Remove ~3 Tbsp dough and roll into a loose ball.  Place the dough onto the parchment paper, then flatten to a 1" thick circle.  Repeat with remaining dough.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until set and golden brown.  Remove from the oven and allow to cool entirely before serving or storing in an airtight container.


  1. These look amazing. I love that they have protein in them. Can't wait to try them. Thanks.

  2. Made these this morning and loved them! Thanks. In regards to your camping in snow post. As one of your Canadian fans our long weekend was last weekend and we woke to a few cm of snow! We are tough here too 😝

  3. I whipped these up this morning! I didn't have chocolate chips on hand so I decided to turn these into lemon poppyseed scones! They were light and fluffy..perfect! Thank you :)
