Apple Cinnamon Almond Scones

Apple Cinnamon Almond Scones

Apple Cinnamon Almond Scones

Serves: 6

Happy Thursday! As promised in my post yesterday, I am giving you the recipe for these amazing scones that I teased you with! They were the first picture in the post yesterday and I had hinted that they had cinnamon and apples in them! Of course, both of those ingredients make perfect fall recipes! This recipe, hits it out of the ball park though! I ate one as soon as they had cooled and then another in the morning and another that afternoon! Yes, I may have managed to eat them all in less than 36 hours! I couldn’t help myself, they were delicious and they couldn’t be easier to make! πŸ™‚

Fit Ingredients

  • 1c (84g) SunWarrior Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1/2c (40g) rolled oats
  • 1/2c (56g) almond flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4c + 2tbs stevia*
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2tsp almond extract
  • 1tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2c + 1tbs coconut milk
  • 1 medium apple, diced or shredded (mine was about 160g)
  • 1/2oz (14g) sliced almonds

*Adjust the stevia to your desired level of sweetness. I used 1/4c + 2tbs and it was barely sweet enough, which I liked! But if you like things sweeter, I would increase this amount.

  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper

***********************************************************

Directions

1) Pre heat your oven to 425 degrees.

2) Line you baking sheet with parchment paper.

3) In a bowl combine your dry ingredients: protein powder, oats, almond flour, cinnamon, stevia and baking powder.

4) Add in your almond extract, vanilla extract and eggs to the bowl.

5) Slowly add in your milk a few tablespoons at a time until you have formed a dough. (You may need slightly more or less than the above amount depending on your protein powder).

6)Fold in your diced (or shredded) apples.

7) Divide your dough evenly into 6 balls and lay on your baking sheet.

8) Press the top of the ball down so it is slightly flat on top.

9) Sprinkle your sliced almonds on top.

10) Bake for ~ 12-15 minutes or until they are slightly browned on top.

11) Allow the scones to cool before serving.

Well, as I mentioned above, these were AMAZING!! I ate them all! Yes, I did! I had them for snack, dessert, preworkout, snack, snack…..you get the point! They paired well with my famous sweetened ricotta that I always eat! They would also be great alongside some greek yogurt! Unfortunately, the boyfriend wasn’t able to taste test these because he is away in Korea, which is sad. However, that only meant more for ME!! πŸ˜‰

Loaded with chunks of apple and cinnamon!

  1. I made these and forgot to add the coconut milk slowly as suggested. The batter turned out very runny. I doubled the dry ingredients, but the batter was still too runny. I baked them in a baking dish instead of in balls of dough to see how they would turn out, but they were really dry. What kind of coconut milk do you use? I had the refridgerated kind…unsweetened. Do you use canned coconut milk? I’d like to try these again soon because they look really good! Thanks!

    • Hi Julie! ‘Im sorry they were runny 😦 I have only had great feedback about them! I also used the unsweetened refrigerated coconut milk. Did you use 1/2c oats, 1/2 almond flour and 1c protein powder?

  2. There is something so amazing about the combination of apple and cinnamon. I’d love one of these right now with a cup of green tea!

  3. Oh man. These make me want to go apple picking immediately! Yum!

  4. love the chunks of apples in those scones πŸ™‚ YUM

  5. I have been getting your post updates for a few weeks now and I LOVE LOVE LOVE when you post recipes! Especially ones that are great between meal snacks like this one! I love how you are able to get so much protein into your recipes for things that would otherwise be too carb heavy. In any case, I just made these and there are delicious! You’ve hit another one out of the ballpark (so to speak LOL)!

    • Thank you SO MUCH Tammy! I am glad you are enjoying the recipes! This one definitely hit an especially high note with me too! I definitely try to keep things towards the lower end of the carb spectrum and higher in protein! I have a lot of followers who do low carb or paleo so they avoid grains. Like them, I prefer to get most of my carbs from fruits and veggies, so I pack in the protein for my snacks and treats! If you ever have any requests for a specific recipe, let me know! Have a great night! πŸ™‚

  6. Totally yummy looking and perfect for the Fall weather. Love apples and cinnamon together.

  7. YUM!!!! These look SO good- I am definitely planning on making them – though I don’t have almond flour. Maybe coconut flour (or peanut) would work? And maybe I’ll veganize it with flax egg….

    • Hi Lauren!
      Coconut flour absorbs the liquid too much so it may make them dry and the peanut flour would give it a peanut taste, which I don’t think would work in the recipe. But you could always grind up regular almonds to make almond flour or sub in oat flour! Let me know what you decide to do! πŸ™‚
