Avocado is natures butter right?
Well, I like to think so!
But, when it comes to baking, you just cant mimic the way butter melts with an avocado. However, I still love this recipe. You don’t get the same flaky texture as scones made with butter, but they are a fun twist on the traditional.
These “scones” are chalked full of scrumptious, healthy ingredients.

Avocado and Feta Scones
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 2.5 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/3 cup whole flax seeds
- 1/2 large ripe, but still a bit firm Avocado (or more if you like)
- 1/2 cup feta cheese (heaping), crumbled
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh curled parsley
- 1 finely chopped green onion
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten with a fork
- 1/4 cup buttermilk
- Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and flax seeds
- Grate the avocado into the flour mixture (if you are using a very soft one it might be easier to cut it in with a pastry cutter – to the size of small beads)
- Add the cheese
- Add the parsley, green onion, eggs and buttermilk
- Mix, and press together into a disk shape on the counter, cut into 8 wedges
- Space the wedges out on a greased baking sheet
- Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes. Do not over bake.
