Recipe: Whole Wheat Scones

We love this recipe! Scones are so heavenly. And it is possible to fry scones in oils that are heart healthy and good for our bodies.

We like to use this recipe to make scone sandwiches or scone tacos. We make scone tacos by placing sour cream, chili, a drizzle of honey, chopped lettuce and maybe a sprinkle of cheese on top of these crispy scones.

Here's the recipe:

Whole Wheat Scones

2 cups warm water
4 tbsps melted butter
2 Tbsps yeast
2 Tbsps honey
2 tsps sea salt
5-6 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup coconut oil
1 cup grapeseed oil

Place the oils in a small but fairly deep pot and turn oven on to a medium setting.

1. Place the warm water, butter, yeast, honey and salt into the blender. Blend until well mixed.

2. Add 2 cups of the flour and mix until thoroughly mixed.

3. Add another 3 cups of flour.

4. Continue adding some more flour until the dough comes away from the sides.

5. Place dough on a lightly greased plate and allow to rise for 5-7 minutes.

6. Turn down the temperature some. Tear off part of the dough (about enough to equal 1/4 to 1/3 cup). Flatten out some and carefully drop into hot oil.

(The oils will raise and bubble some each time which is why it's important to use a pot that is at least four or more inches deep.)

7. Using a fork, turn the scone over onto the other side after about 1-2 minutes or until the underside has turned golden brown. Cook the other side for the same amount of time.

8. Lift scone out of pot with a fork and place on a large dish covered with a paper towel.

9. Fry the rest of the scones just the same. Don't worry if, near the end, the oil is running out. The scone doesn't have to be completely covered with oil in order to fry. Just make sure it's covered at least half way.


* It is possible to make sourdough scones. To do so, follow this recipe:

2 cups warm water
4 tbsps melted butter
1 cup starter
2 Tbsps honey
2 tsps sea salt
5-6 cups flour

Mix all ingredients and allow to sit overnight or from morning until evening. Use this dough for your scones.
