Ingredients

1 large eggs
½ cup milk
whole milk or low-fat
¼ cup olive oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
teaspoon black pepper
or as needed, freshly ground
*
¼ cup basil
leaves, freshly chopped
*
½ cup feta cheese
crumbled
8 each black olives
prefer oil-cured, pitted and finely chopped
*
6 each sundried tomatoes
oil packed and finely chopped
*

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.

In a small bowl, add egg, milk and olive oil, whisk until well mixed. Set aside.

Add the flours, baking powder and black pepper in another large mixing bowl, whisk until well combined.

Mix in the remaining ingredients until well blended.

Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture, and stir with a wooden spatula or your hand to put everything together and form a rough dough. The dough may look a bit funky, but it's totally fine.

Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface or cutting board.

Form the dough into a ball, then flatten it into a ¾ inch-thick circle.

With a floured 2½ inch cookie cutter, cut out the scones, then gather together the dough scraps and repeat (you should be able to get about 16 scones at the end).

Place the scones to the prepared baking sheet.

Bake until light golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack in the baking pan for a few minutes.

Transfer the scones onto the wire rack,

Serve warm or cool completely on the rack and store at an air-tight container.

It's a kind of scone week. I really fall in love with these flavorful little treats. You can make savory or sweet scones, and there are so many delicious recipes.

I made up this recipe by using what I had on hand, in order to make some healthy yet tasty scones, I used most whole wheat flour and olive oil, added fresh basil, feta cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and oil-cured black olives. Boy, oh boy, aren't they the best and most flavorful scones I have ever made. Packed with goodness and yumminess, no guilt or worries.

They well satisfy my palate and tummy :)
