Chocolate Buttermilk Scones

3/4 cup cold buttermilk
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg

1 cup all purpose flour 
1 cup white whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp chilled butter (must be cold) cut into small pieces

3/4 cup chocolate chips
cooking spray

     Preheat oven to 375°. Combine the first four ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray.
     Combine flour, baking powder, salt, in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk.
     Cut in chilled butter with a pastry blender, or you could use 2 knives, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. 
      Add milk mixture, stirring just until moist.
     Gently fold in chocolate chips.
     Place dough onto a floured surface and knead lightly four times with floured hands.    
     Form dough into an 9-inch circle onto baking sheet, about 3/4" thick. Using a knife, cut dough into 12 wedges all the way through.
