8 scones
Serving Size
1 scone

2 ½ cups whole wheat flour (we also loved this recipe with whole grain spelt flour)

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon cumin

1 small to medium zucchini, finely grated

4 scallions, sliced

4 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded

2 eggs, lightly beaten

¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil

½ cup milk (we used nonfat, but you can substitute what you have)

Optional: 1 jalapeno pepper or 1 Hungarian hot pepper, seeded and diced 

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, salt, and cumin and stir to combine.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and stir to combine. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together until the mixture is evenly incorporated. The dough will be a bit sticky. (Pro tip: Wet hands are best when dealing with wet, sticky dough)
  4. Lightly oil a large sheet pan, and sprinkle a little bit of flour onto the surface.
  5. Divide the dough into two evenly sized balls and dump them onto the sheet pan. Shape the dough balls into discs, then cut each disc into four quarters (like pizza slices), forming triangular wedges.
  6. Arrange the wedges evenly on the baking sheet, then bake for about 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Best served warm.

How'd it Taste?

Patricia Rapko
What should the grated small to medium zucchini total in terms of measurement? 1 cup? 2 cups? And...should the liquid from the zucchini be squeezed out?
Hi Patricia, One small to medium zucchini will yield about 2/3 cup packed, grated zucchini. No need to squeeze out the liquid in this recipe. Enjoy!
