Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate Filled Peanut Butter Scones

5 T peanut butter
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 T white sugar
2 T brown sugar
1 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 cup egg substitute or 1 egg
3 T skim milk
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Recipe Directions for Chocolate Filled Peanut Butter Scones

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grease a small baking sheet. Smear the peanut butter about 1/2 inch thick inside a small bowl. Freeze for at least 15 minutes.

  2. Whisk together the flour, sugars, baking powder and salt in a medium sized bowl. If you want the chocolate mixed into the scone, mix the chocolate chips in now. Place this bowl in the refrigerator. Lightly beat the egg and 2T milk in a small bowl or measuring cup and also place in the refrigerator.

  3. Remove the peanut butter from the freezer and scrape out and add to the flour mixture. Work it in with your hands until very few clumps remain. Add the egg/milk mixture and mix together with a large spoon or by hand until it is evenly mixed. Add more milk as needed (1T at a time) to make the dough workable, but keep it stiff. I used 2T of milk and had a heck of a time with it sticking to my hands. I eventually scraped it off with a spoon and tried to touch it minimally.

  4. If you've already mixed in the chocolate then form a 6 inch disk on a lightly floured surface and proceed to the next step. Otherwise form two 5 inch disks on the floured surface. If the dough is really sticky, use the back of a spoon and one finger to shape it all correctly, although it seemed to become less sticky as it warmed to room temperature. Draw shallow guidelines with a knife on one disk to separate the dough into 4 sections (but do not cut through!). Make sure to draw the lines in an orientation that you will remember (I made sure that one line was parallel to the counter edge). Put 1t of chocolate shavings or chips into each section. Top with the other disk and press down and seal the edges to form one big 6 inch disk

  5. Cut the dough into 4 sections (hopefully you remember where the lines are if you filled them with chocolate!) and seal the edges. Place on the baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes or until the tops are lightly browned. Top with strawberry jam or dunk in a cup of coffee!
