Scones are my favorite type of quick bread because of the texture and the many flavors you can incorporate in it. In general, I love chewy bread with  rough textures. I guess you can now imagine why I fell in love with scones. I also love anything that’s glazed, even meat, and scones are, most of the time, glazed on top with something that complements its flavors.

I’ve made Pumpkin Pie Spice Scones a while back and it’s one of the things that became a regular pair with my cup of coffee during fall season. The other day, I was struck with the idea of making lemon-flavored scones but since I’m on a health kick, I wanna add  some fresh fruits into it. Blueberries seem to be the perfect choice to combine with lemon.

Certain supermarkets carry fresh, plump, imported blueberries which are ideal for recipes like this or when you’re craving. It is also ideal because of the many health benefits you can get from it. For one, blueberries has one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits and it contains many phytonutrients.

And it tastes so delicious when combined with lemon and turned into scones!

This recipe contains less sugar than the usual scones but make sure you take it easy on the lemon glaze…

Instead of milk, I used greek yogurt to bind the dry ingredients. This is my current favorite brand of greek yogurt because…… it’s the only one being sold at the grocery I go to…LOL!
