Scones. These most certainly aren’t your grandma’s unhealthy fat laden scones. I do love that these mimic a regular scone, only much healthier.
You might remember I did a recipe for Lemon Cranberry Scones . Since I liked them, I came up with another version….white chocolate raspberry. The consensus was….we liked these even better! I listed 1/2 cup of whey protein in the recipe, but you could add another 1/4 cup if you really want to pack in the protein. I’ve done it both ways, the only thing I notice with using more protein in baked goods is that the end result can be a touch dry if you add too much.
I don’t recommend subbing out any of the fat in this recipe, for additional applesauce and such, as the recipe will not turn out. Traditional scones generally have a lot more fat than this, and they simply need it to be a proper scone. They are pretty massive, so you could always eat half of one if you want a lower calorie snack.
Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
- 1½ cups oat flour (just grind oats in your blender)
- 6 packets stevia
- ½ cup whey protein in vanilla (could sub for extra oat flour)
- 1½ tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ cup (heaping) frozen raspberries
- ⅓ cup cold butter (or vegan margaraine, coconut oil or vegan palm shortening, just make sure its very cold)
- 2 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
- ¼ cup + 1 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
- 2 Tbsp white chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
- In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients up to sea salt. Add cold margarine or butter and using a pastry blender or a fork.
- Cut the fat into the dry ingredients to make small crumbly pieces.
- In a separate bowl, add all the wet ingredients. Pour the wet into the dry mixture slowly and mix gently with a fork until it comes together (careful to not overmix).
- Lastly, add in the raspberries and white chocolate chips and mix lightly until combined.
- Depending on your climate, you may not need all the liquid, 1 Tbsp or 2 Tbsp might remain. The dough will be wet.
- Cover your counter with additional oat flour. Gather the dough into a ball and flatten it out a bit.
- Using a sharp knife, cut it into 6 triangles, similar to cutting a pizza. Place each slice on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
- Place in oven and bake at 375 degrees F for 12-14 minutes. They will remain light in color, but will be firm.
- NOTE: These definitely taste best warm. So the next day, lightly microwave each scone for 15-20 seconds. Cutting in half and toasting them would also work.
