Whole Wheat Raspberry Ricotta Scones

These whole wheat raspberry scones are the perfect way to use up your ricotta in your fridge! Great for a grab and go breakfast!

Whole Wheat Raspberry Ricotta Scones


It's been 2 months since I made my last scone recipe. I was going into scone-baking withdrawal. I would wake up in the middle of the night and think: MUST. BAKE. SCONES.

Maybe a slight exaggeration. The last scone I made was the Starbucks pumpkin scones in November...back when I could still get away with making pumpkin recipes.

However, I bought a scone a couple of days ago, and had a sudden craving to make them at home. It's not like I planned this. I went to a yoga class at 8AM (I know, right? Super early..) but the yoga instructor forgot to show up. I guess it was too early even for her.

So instead of going straight back home, I went to Starbucks to get a treat. You know, to treat myself for at least TRYING to exercise (because, as they say, it's the thought that counts) As soon as I had that scone, I thought to myself "I can make a better scone than that, and it'll cost half the price."

But instead of re-creating that scone from Starbucks (like I do with a lot of the things they sell, hint: Oat and Fudge BarsPumpkin Spiced Latte and Lemon Cranberry Scones to name a few) I made a recipe that I pinned a while ago.

These scones are not so sweet, and the perfect texture. An awesome breakfast, evening tea... snack between snacks... You can trust me on that last one, I know from experience.

  5. Form a ball with the batter, and press into a lightly sprayed springform pan. Cut into 8 wedges.
