Irrespective of the fact that I do love a generous portion of butter every now and then. I now have a no butter on a weekday rule in my kitchen. Quiet ambitious you think? Really not difficult if your weekday count starts and ends on the first day of the week -Monday. Avocado has been my new favourite in my baking recipes. The creamy texture and nutty taste is actually really good for baking and it is the most healthy alternative to butter in any recipe. Surprised? Try it to believe it. I baked some blueberry scones substituting butter with avocado and trust me you will not at all miss the butter in your scones.

Preparation time 15 minutes

Baking Time 10-15 minutes

Ingredients

2 1/2  cups whole wheat flour+ extra for dusting

1/2 cup avocado mashed

1/2 cup  milk

2 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 egg beaten for egg wash

A pinch of salt

Fresh blueberries for topping

Preheat oven at 180 C. Mix the milk and the lemon juice together and let it sit for 10 minutes until the milk separates. In the mean time take the avocado’s cut them into halves and with a spoon scoop the flesh out of it and mash it using a fork until smooth and creamy. In a mixing bowl mix all the ingredients except for the blueberries and knead well to form a sticky dough. Dust some extra flour if it becomes too sticky. Pat the dough into a round about 4 cm deep. Using a cookie cutter (about 5 cm deep and smooth edged to get a clean cut so that the scones rise better) cut them into any shape you want and place them in a baking tray covered with baking paper or sprayed with vegetable oil. Once you get the maximum number of scones from your dough, take the remaining dough and repeat the process.  Now, brush the egg wash mixture into the top of each of these scones. The egg wash will give a very nice colour to the scones. If you do not eat eggs, then you can totally skip this step. Take few blueberries and place them on top of these scones and press lightly so that they stick to the scones. Bake them for 15-20 minutes until the top is nice golden colour. Enjoy warm with maple syrup or jam with a hot cup of tea.
