Skinny Raspberry Chocolate Chip Scones COBS EDITION

TODAYYYYYY I am showing you how to make THIS:

Background Story 

I am absolutely OBSESSED with COBS. I cannot even describe my love for them. It is just crazy.

My friend bought me this cheese and pesto scroll... 

oh my gosh. It is all about the centre. It's just loaded with sauce, super moist and VERY flavourable. Then she got me this... 
and let me just say... the opposite happens here. It's all about the outside! The little bits of white chocolate chips with raspberries is where its AT! If you have a local cobs bakery around you I recommend you to go hit the place up and try these. There was a point where I was eating one of these every day. One night my girls and I decided we needed a healthier alternative cause we can enjoy life but we also don't want to get chubs! So Kelsey and I collaborated and made the skinny raspberry and chocolate scone! It's whole wheat and we choose healthy alternatives to cute out fat. 


  • 2 1/2 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour 
  • 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar 
  • 1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder 
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Coarse Sea Salt 
  • 1/2 Cup Plain Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Cup Buttermilk 
  • 1 Egg Yolk 
  • 2 Cups of Raspberries 
  • 1/4 Cup Chocolate Chips 


  1. Preheat Oven 400 Degrees F
  2. Mix all Dry ingredients together: Flour, Brown Sugar, Baking Powder, Sea Salt 
  3. Then Add Greek Yogurt, Mix Again! Until Pea size pieces form 
  4. Add Buttermilk and Egg Yolk, Mix! Your dough must be a nice spongy texture, if it is too moist add more flour! 
  5. Flour your counter, Knead it 3 Times, Then fold in raspberries and chocolate chips 
  6. Roll it out so it is 1 inch in diameter and cut into pieces of your desired size 
  7. Transfer to Wax paper  and leave it in the oven for 18-20 minutes.

The end of fall semester is here! It is final time... I am so sorry for not posting. I have been so busy with life!!! It's Christmastime and inevitably everything is just holly and jolly and 10 times more hectic!

Some quick tips for studying (advice I should take)

  • Study for short periods and give yourself a break 
  • Drink some tea or caffeine to keep yourself awake ;) 
  • Get 7-8 hours of sleep so your brain can digest all that information! 
  • Re-write your notes in your own words 
  • Make sure to eat breakfast the day of your exam!!! 
Speaking from experience, doing all-nighters totally sap all the energy out of you! You are left with barely any energy to write the exam and especially if you skip breakfast! 

Don't forget to keep smiling!
