I made half a recipe. Used whole wheat flour only. We enjoyed them and will definitely make them again. Reviewed for PAC Spring 2008.
These tasted good, but I'd hardly call them diabetic-friendly at a whopping 25 grams of carbohydrate apiece!
These are scrumptious. I made then a tad more diabetic friendly by using 1 cup white flour and 3/4 cup of whole wheat (I made a half recipe). With the addition of the ww flour they still came out light in texture. I used my round biscuit cutter instead of making wedges thinking I would get more but smaller scones. I still got 8 lovely scones. Oh well, sometimes you just have to bite the bullet...or in this case the scones and I have done so quite happily.
