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.
