"Starbucks coffee and pastries are a must for anyone living in Washington state. A local newspaper published a scone recipe from Starbuck's new cookbook, and I modified it to come up with this low-fat version." --CL Reader

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup unprocessed wheat bran
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons chilled stick margarine, cut into small pieces
2/3 cup chopped pitted dates
2/3 cup vanilla low-fat yogurt
2 egg whites, lightly beaten
Vegetable cooking spray


Combine first 8 ingredients in a bowl; cut in margarine with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add dates; toss well. Add yogurt and egg whites, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened (dough will be sticky).

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; with floured hands, knead lightly 3 to 4 times. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cut dough into 10 wedges, cutting into but not through dough. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
