Nutrition Profile:


  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • cup granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 2 large eggs

  • cup vanilla low-fat strained yogurt (such as Greek-style)

  • ½ teaspoon almond extract

  • 1 medium peach, chopped (1 cup)

  • 1 teaspoon turbinado sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Using a pastry blender or 2 forks, cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Whisk eggs, yogurt and almond extract together in a small bowl. Stir the yogurt mixture into the flour mixture until combined. Fold in peaches until evenly distributed. Using a 2-ounce (1/4-cup) scoop, scoop 12 scones onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 1 inch apart. Sprinkle the tops evenly with turbinado sugar.

  2. Bake until golden brown and a wooden pick inserted in the centers comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let the scones cool on the pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
