Lemon Chia Seed Scone Recipe - Perfect Paired With Coffee or Tea

Hi! Lynne, here, from Turnips 2 Tangerines! This is a recipe you are really going to want to try. I found it on the Dole website and changed it slightly, adding a few tablespoons of Greek lemon yogurt. The scones turned out fantastic, with a nice lemon flavor and a slight crunch from the chia seeds. (Personally don't think chia seeds have any taste but they are super good for you.)

I love all scones and these Lemon Chia Scones pair perfectly with a nice hot cup of tea (or coffee, if you prefer.)
