You know what I love?
A good scone with a good cup of coffee.
You know what’s even better though?
A low calorie scone!
Seriously! A delicious scone that won’t go to your hips. These babies right here, yeah I’m talking about these chocolate chip scones that are only 160 calories per scone. I dare you to beat that!
You can’t! But that’s OK, you can use this recipe here and share it with others. I won’t mind! As you eat them, you won’t even be thinking that they’re low calorie, trust me you won’t. You’ll be thinking you’re indulging, and that’s OK.
I made a batch of these which I took to work, because I wanted to spread the love, and let me tell you these babies were a success. They were gone in no time.
So do your favorite food blogger a huge favor and give these a try, I guarantee you’ll love them.
