Apple Cinnamon Scones_main2

Why do I love scones? Let me count the ways. They make a great breakfast, or snack, taste amazing with coffee or tea, and are filling. Apple Cinnamon Scones are a no-brainer in my book. Can you really go wrong with anything apple cinnamon?

I don’t make scones the traditional way. These include healthy ingredients like oat flour, real butter, apples, cinnamon and lightly sweetened with stevia. I also don’t forget to add a dose of protein, cause really, they wouldn’t be a complete snack if they didn’t contain any protein.

I was given the opportunity to try the new Jamie Eason’s Lean Body® for Her Whey Protein Isolate. You know, the one with the beautiful Jamie Eason on the package. The timing was perfect, as I had been wanting to try it. I’ve followed Jamie for years, and knew that it must be a great product, and she wouldn’t stand behind something that wasn’t.

Initially, I tried the Lean Body® for Her Whey Protein Isolate as a shake, and it was amazing! Smooth, with a rich flavor, and no grittiness at all. I knew it would be a great addition to one of my “added protein” baked goods.

This isn’t my first scone with added protein, my White Chocolate Raspberry Scones are also great, as well as my Lemon Cranberry Scones and Pumpkin Scones.

Not only would these make a great breakfast on the go, you could also cut these in half to fit into a school lunchbox. A great option for a picky child if you’re finding new ways to get them to eat unprocessed snacks and less sugar.

If I could give any advice regarding this recipe, its that the butter contained in the recipe should not be reduced or it won’t turn out. Scones simply aren’t scones without added fat, so you will not get an even identical result if you don’t use butter or some other form of fat. I’ve played around with these scone recipes a lot, and this amount of fat is the least amount that will still make the recipe a workable one.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

Black Bean Summer Salad

Sometimes the best things are created from what you have on hand. This was the case when I made this delicious salad. I wanted to make a quick salad for lunch, but didn’t want it to be lettuce based. I always have some canned beans on hand, and I love black beans because they taste […]

Cocoa Banana Muffins

Ripe bananas. Its always a challenge deciding what to do with them. I usually freeze them and use in smoothies, or make a loaf of banana bread. This time, I wanted to do a muffin, but have it taste different than traditional banana bread, and can you really go wrong with adding chocolate? I know, […]

I’ve really got on the popsicle making bandwagon this year. The girls are just obsessed with them, and want two a day (at least!). What they don’t know is I’m secretly adding good-for-you things and chuckling at the fact they have no idea. Every batch I do something different. These Peaches n’ Cream popsicles would […]

Let the coconut craze continue. I was craving coconut yet again, and wanted to come up with a new coconut recipe. Naturally, it had to be quick, and not contain a bunch of ingredients. We went camping recently, and I had my smores kit all ready.  Inside, I put a Bounty bar (which is the […]
