I agree with the previous poster...it would be like trying to make a healthy shortbread. It is hard to substitute for butter in baking and 2 sticks is a lot of fat. You might be able to sub the white flour for whole wheat flour to at least add some nutrients. Try looking up some recipes from Ellie Krieger. Her recipes usually cut down on the fat/calories, increase nutrients, and taste pretty good. Her mixed berry cobbler is very good and might satisfy your scone craving.

I'm having trouble finding it. Could you post either the link or a list of the ingredients here?
