More often than not, now we are both retired . . . we have our big meal at noon. Dinner. That means that we aren't really all that hungry later on in the day. Todd calls it supper . . . a light meal which consists of not a lot really . . . maybe some toast and cheese, or bread and jam . . . or . . .
Occasionally, very occasionally, I will do us up a treat like these delicious chocolate chip scones. And the best part of these scones is . . . they are really low fat. There is only 2 TBS of butter in the whole recipe!
Light and fluffy with a tender crumb . . . this comes from the vanilla yogurt, which also gives them some additional flavour . . .
You can use either mini chocolate chips, or the regular sized chocolate chips. Milk or semi sweet, or both!
I like the semi sweet myself, but then I am rather fond of darker chocolate. You can also add some chopped toasted nuts if you like. They are delicious any way you cut them. Light and tasty. Scrummo!
