Choc Chip Scones

1/2 C wheat flour
1/2 C reg flour
1/2 C oats
3 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
½ tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp unsalted butter
¼ C Greek yogurt
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ C mini chocolate chips

PREHEAT the oven to 400F.

MIX together the whole wheat flour,
 all-purpose flour, oats, sugar,
 baking powder, baking soda, 
and cinnamon in 
a food processor. 
With the processor running,
 add small cubes 
of butter one at a time.
 Process until the mixture
 looks crumbly. 
Add the yogurt, egg,
 and vanilla extract.
 Process just until well mixed.
 Add the chocolate chips. 
Process for about 10 seconds.

PLACE the dough on a
 lightly floured cutting board.
 Knead lightly to finish 
combining all the ingredients.
 Form into a ball,
 flatten into an 8" circle (1/2" thick)
 with your hands or a floured rolling pin, 
and cut into 8 wedges.

 Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray
 or use a nonstick baking sheet.
 Place the 8 wedges on the baking sheet.
BAKE for approximately 12 to 15 minutes, 
until lightly browned.
