Whole Wheat Cranberry Scones

I haven’t made scones in forever. I actually think the last time I made them was when I lived in the UK right after high school and my friends used to ask me to make them.

I have changed the recipe a bunch and I think I liked the original recipe better so I think I am going to have to make that soon and post that version as well. These ones were good but I liked how the other ones used to look, puffy and more like a real scone. Nevertheless these ones were still very tasty even if they looked more like a puffy cookie than a scone, oh well…..

Anyways, I thought they deserved a post because they were still good regardless of the appearance. Like with many other desserts, scones are very versatile so go ahead and make your own versions. Chocolate chips, other dry fruits, grated orange or lemon will also work good.


Here you can appreciate the fine bread crumbs on the left picture when mixing the dry ingredients with the butter. On the right picture it is pretty much the dough result.

I used different cookie cutters. The hearts where way to big but got eaten :-)


Whole Wheat Cranberry Scones

Yield: 14-16 scones


2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 stick butter, cold
1 cup low fat milk +3 tablespoons
1/2 cup dry cranberries


3 tablespoons low fat milk
2 tablespoons sugar



Preheat oven to 425 F. Prepare baking pans with parchment paper.

Using your fingers mix together dry ingredients with the butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Add milk and cranberries. Blend together. Shape into a round or square and cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters or a knife.

Brush each scone with milk and sprinkle with sugar. (If you don't have a brush you can use your fingers, I have done that before)

Place on baking sheets and bake for 16-22 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. Is this a chewy cookie? I’m imagining with the oil it probably is?
    I’m going to try this tomorrow! I might have to make it into two so they’ll fit in the toaster oven but it will be so much easier than spooning out and baking 6 cookies at a time (that takes forever to make a batch of cookies).
    Oh! And I bet it would be fabulous with some dried cranberries, white chocolate chips and pecans! Or dried cherries, chocolate and pecans. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Tiene una pinta buenísima esta super galleta!!!!! Es muy buena idea eso de dejar toda la masa en una sola porción y luego cortarla como una pizza. Es divertido!

  3. Patti,

    it is a chewy cookie, super yummy. All those substitutions sounds wonderful.

    Let me know how it turns out, and yes this is way easier than baking individual cookies at a time!

  4. I love this. It truly is fun and delicious!

  5. Oh!!! No la había visto en galleta y con trozos de choco….En Valencia la hacen con nueces y pasas con el bollo más tierno como de una magdalena, y tambien hacen otra con masa de calabaza y uvas pasas, ésta última realmente buena….un saludo Miryam.
    Tus postres son muy tentadores y tiene un aspecto formidable….UHMMMM!!!!

  6. Menudo cookie buena idea di que sí así acabamos antes y antes podemos degustarla.

  7. The children, large and small, love these monster cookies. My near 40 year old son always requests a cookie similar to this for his birthday. Yours sounds especially delicious. I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings…Mary

  8. Una idea genial lo de hacer una mega galleta e irla partiendo….

  9. This reminds me of those cookie cakes I used to get as a kid. This might be fun for valentines day- shaped like a heart!

  10. You are on a roll :) I just made this into a giant heart and it’s great! I’m having a hard time not eating it all. The husband said that I needed to write you to tell you that this cookie is a yummy cookie, and not just a yummy “healthy” cookie! I’m having a nice little baking weekend here. Tomorrow I’m trying out your white chocolate mousse cake. Thanks again for all the work you do so we can have healthy stuff that actually tastes good :)

  11. Erin,

    We really love this cookie ourselves. My son is in love with it. We actually thought about shaping it like a heart when we made it but kind of passed on it, next time around :-)

    I am glad you guys are liking the bake goodies :-)

  12. WoW! it looks so delicious. .im planning to make giant chocolate chip cookie on a weekend.

  13. I just made these yesterday-the first recipe I’ve tried from your website. They were delicious and definitely hit the spot for the sweets I was craving! :) I can’t wait to try more of your recipes! :)

  14. Great recipe! I subbed coconut oil for the olive oil, and regular flour as I didn’t have ww, and it turned out wonderfully! The cookie wasn’t overly sweet and the chocolate chips balanced out the sweetness really well. Definitely one I will be making again :)

  15. Hello! I was just wondering if this recipe has been updated recently? I used to make this a lot, and I feel pretty certain it used to be a combination of butter and oil. I will try it this updated way at some point, but I was just curious since I really liked the way the previous recipe turned out! Is it very similar?
