So my dear, weird fellow graduate student friend Jason had a birthday a while back and I promised him I would bake something for all the grad students to celebrate. He requested scones. Birthday SCONES. But as I said...he's weird ;). And if it was blueberry scones he wanted...that was what he was going to get! That my friend, is the story of how these fantastic, not-super-healthy-but-so-delicious-you-don't-care scones came into existence. And now I must share them with the masses because that is how good they are.
ACTUALLY, let me rewind a sec, you know how I said "not-so-healthy" up there? Sure. Okay. Scones in general are not the healthiest things in the world. BUT, compared to a blueberry scone from Starbucks, my version has 187 less calories, 10.3g less fat (8.4g less saturated), less sodium, and no cholesterol (And it probably tastes better. No joke.)
Keep reading for the recipe!
