Makes 12 scones
1 Hass Avocado
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/4 cup sugar
Grated zest of 2 lemons
1/4 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cinnamon and sugar for sprinkling
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
In a blender or food processor puree the avocado with the oil.
Add the eggs and mix well.
Incorporate the sugar, lemon zest, sour cream or yogurt and the milk. Mix well.
In a big bowl, sift the flours, baking powder and salt. Add the avocado mixture.
Mix with a spoon until just moistened.
Drop spoonfuls of batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (I used an ice cream scoop). Flatten them with another spoon, sprayed with oil if necessary.
Sprinkle the scones with sugar and cinnamon, if desired.
Place the baking sheet on a rack in the center of the oven. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve warm and ENJOY!!
