Chocolate chip scones

I'm taking a break from the whole30, with Thanksgiving and all! Lol so this morning I got up and decided to make my kids some yummy scones! Looked at a few recipes on Pinterest... Saw a lot that needed heavy cream or butter milk (I had neither) I found one that used Bisquick I tweaked it a little my way and came up with these! 


2 cups Bisquick
1 egg
1/2 Cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 Cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips

How to: 
Preheat oven to 425°
In a mixer put in your Bisquick, egg, milk, vanilla, sugar, and chocolate chips. Turn on to low speed, I added a splash more milk as it was too crumbly... As dove formed I laid out some flower on the counter and dumped the dough. I rolled it a little on the flower so that I could touch it without sticking to it, flattened it out to about an inch thick in a circle and then cut like a pizza. Put on cookie sheet and into the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes... So good! The kids absolutely loved them!

Almost 2 weeks!

Tomorrow makes two weeks of the whole 30! It's been a little harder feeding the family and not being able to have what they are having all the time... But the other day when they had chicken and rice I just pulled some chicken to the side and grilled up a zucchini  instead! Last night when we had friends over I made stew and just didn't add the corn, and stayed clear of the cornbread! Tonight we had these amazing shish kebabs!!!!

Chicken, cherry tomatoes, onion, zucchini and red bell pepper... Yum!!!

I was going to put them on the barbecue but the propane went out so they had to go in the oven... They were still delicious! 

And the best part of it all is I am down 6 pounds!
