  • 2 to 3 cups white whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter cold
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt nonfat, plain
  • 1/3 cup black strap molasses optional sorghum molasses


  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon Greek yogurt nonfat, plain


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, coconut sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. Note: add 2 cups flour, then add a little at a time until it makes a cookie dough-like consistency.
  • Grate the butter on a box grater and mix it into the flour with your hands until the mixture resembles lumpy, wet sand.
  • Gently mix in the molasses, 1/2 cup of the yogurt, and milk. Once the mixture comes together, turn out the dough onto a floured work surface and gently knead it using your hands until the dough comes together.
  • Form the dough into a large circle about 1-inch deep. Cut the circle into 8 equal slices.
  • Place the slices on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, until lightly browned on the outside. A toothpick inserted into the center of the scone should come out clean.
  • Meanwhile, make the drizzle by whisking together the remaining tablespoon of Greek yogurt, maple syrup, and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Transfer the mixture to a pastry bag.
  • Allow the scones to cool for 10 minutes before drizzling the glaze over the scones.
