For these Copycat Starbucks Vanilla Bean Scones I use Lakanto Monkfuit Sweetener. It’s 0 calories and 0 Freestyle Points. I recommend that the sugar substitute you use is granulated otherwise the texture will be gritty.

The Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener comes in Classic, Golden or Powdered. I use the Classic for the white granulated, Golden for the brown sugar substitute and Powdered for a powdered sugar substitute.

If you notice in this recipe I use one large egg white -and the reason I only use the egg white is because the yolk tends to give these scones a yellowish tint-and since these scones are vanilla bean-I prefer the dough to be white vs. yellow.

For the base of this recipe I use the two ingredient dough (a.k.a. self rising flour and Greek yogurt).  However, I have found that combining an egg or egg white to the “two ingredient dough” and then reducing the amount of Greek yogurt really helps with the stickiness and texture of the dough.

Keep in mind eggs have a great ability to leaven or puff up foods when air is beaten into them. So, egg whites are especially good at this and, and when beaten, they create a foam that has more stability and volume than whole eggs or yolks.

Also, room temperature egg whites create the best foam volume and stability. 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup self rising flour ( I use Gold Medal)
  • 1 cup non fat plain Greek yogurt 
  • 3 Tbsp white granulated sugar substitute  ( I use Lakanto Classic Sweetener)
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg white

*Icing:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl whisk the sugar, and self rising flour. Using a fork mix the greek yogurt into the mixture until all the flour is blended together.
  3. Add vanilla extract and egg white. Mix with a spoon to combine.
  4. Using your hands, knead into a soft dough, doesn’t take long to do this 1-2 minutes.
  5. Roll the dough to make a rectangle, make sure the dough is about an inch thick.
  6. Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut the dough into 6 triangles.
  7. Place the triangles on the parchment paper and bake for about 10-12 minutes, or until lightly golden.
  8. To make the glaze: whisk the half and half or skim milk, the powdered sugar substitute and vanilla together.
  9. Once scones have cooled, drizzle the glaze on top of each scone.

Notes:

  1. If you use different brands other than listed on the recipe the point value may vary.
  2. In order to calculate the freestyle smart points on a recipe you will need to enter the ingredients in manually ( by ingredient) in the ww recipe builder or add the points and recipe name through quick add rather than entering in the nutritional information otherwise the point values will not be accurate since this recipe contains zero point items.
  3. The Lakanto Monkfruit Golden Sweetener (sugar substitute) that is used in this recipe is zero points. Please keep in mind-the point value can vary depending on the brand of sugar substitute you choose to use. Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener also has a 1:1 ratio to real sugar. If you use a different sugar substitute you will want to use the equivalent to real sugar that is recommended on back of the sugar substitute package
  4. You can substitute the glaze with 1 Tbsp melted Pillsbury sugar-free vanilla frosting. Just drizzle the melted frosting over the tops of the scones as another glaze option.

If you use regular flour...should I add baking powder or baking soda? If so, how much?

Lindsay Kehl

Hi Debbie

yes, you will want to add 1 tsp baking powder to the regular flour.

Thank you!

How big are these? The same size as the petite Starbucks ones or are they larger?

Hi! Is there any reason to not add fruit to this? I’d love an easy Blueberry Scone with 2 ingredient dough. Thank you.

Hi, I wanted to say thank you for the recipe! Also, I’m not sure what I did wrong, but my scones looked more like a bread slice, however they still tasted fantastic. Any tips on how to make them more scone-like?? Thanks

You’re very welcome! Did you by chance maybe use regular flour?! The baking powder in the self rising flour along with the egg white helps make these rise. It could be the self rising flour that was used.

Hope that helps! Linds
