Dark Chocolate Blueberry Scones

Good Morning, Friends!

I hope you are having a great week so far!

This past spring, I had the pleasure of rooming with a new blog friend, Ruthie, at the SNAP conference.  She is the cutest and sweetest thing ever!  {And a whole lot quieter than me.}  :)  She had to listen to me talk the paint off the wall every night in our rooms.  hee.hee.


I was so excited when Ruthie asked to be a monthly food contributor to my blog.  She is an AMAZING cook, and I love her recipes.  I know you will too.  So please give a big “Beneath My Heart Hello!” to Ruthie, and be sure to pop over to her blog after you read this post.  Thanks!

I just love Traci, and I’m excited to get to know all of you too.

Today, I wanted to share these

Dark Chocolate Blueberry Scones-

they’re a skinny breakfast scone (but, still delicious)

and full of antioxidants too.
