This weekend the b/f and I took a trip to ski at Alpine Meadows. On the way up we made the a stop at the Tahoe House in Tahoe City to get some coffee and a little breakfast to go. It is a must have if you are in the Tahoe City area. They serve scones, bagels and so many other pastries and goodies. I usually go for a good ol' bagel but this time I decided to go for the spinach feta scone and it was yummy! After having one slice I knew I had to try and make it myself.
This was my first time making a scone and I totally started off on the wrong foot because I was out of butter and had already made one too many trips to the grocery store. So instead of butter I used a little olive oil and some Greek yogurt and it turned out to be a great decision and a healthy alternative. The end result was not as dry as a scone but not quite a bread so I will call it scone/bread. This recipe makes for a great side for dinner or a yummy breakfast. Enjoy!
2 cups white flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder

3 .Whisk the egg in a small bowl then add in the yogurt and milk and mix well.
4. Combine the dry and wet ingredients together until evenly combined.

6. Form the ball of dough into a 3/4 inch thick circle and cut into triangles.
