Buttermilk Chocolate Chip Scones

Yet another scone recipe!!! What can I say except "I love scones!"  This one is loaded with mini-chocolate chips. Great out of the oven but these make a great grab-and-go snack for kids and adults alike. Enjoy!


1/4 cup berry or castor sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, cold
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup aguave syrup
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup mini-chocolate chips

What to do:

Yield is between 18-24 scones depending on size.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in large bowl. Whisk together.
  2. Add butter to flour bowl and using a pastry blender (or two knives) mix together until it resembles course crumbs.
  3. In another bowl, add egg, syrup, and buttermilk.
  4. Add chips to DRY ingredients.
  5. Make a well in the dry ingredients and add liquid bowl in one go.
