Snack Ideas - Protein Scones

I got the following recipe from Jen Comas ( over at EliteFTS. I'll be whipping up a batch of these tomorrow. I'll post some pictures of the baking process and let you know how they taste! Maybe I'll even bring some in to Tuesday's class...

Get creative with these and add whatever you like - unsweetened cocoa powder & coconut shavings, or dried cranberries and walnuts, etc. I added 1/4 cup raisins and 1/2 Tablespoon of cinnamon, but any add-ins that you like will work. Dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, whatever. Add something though, or these will be really boring.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Ingredients: 1 cup plus 1/4 cup almond flour 1/2 cup vanilla protein powder (or chocolate. Whatev.) I used Vanilla Metabolic Drive 1/4 cup oats 1 Tablespoon of Stevia 4 egg whites 2 Tablespoons 0% fat Greek Yogurt, or pumpkin puree (your choice. I used pumpkin. Unsweetened applesauce will also work) 1/4 cup raisins 1/2 Tablespoon cinnamon

Mix all of the dry ingredients together first.

Then add the wet ingredients.

Drop 9 spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray or smeared with coconut oil, and slightly spread them out just a bit.

Bake until the peaks barely start to turn golden, about 12 minutes. They should still be slightly soft when you take them out.

WARNING: Watch these closely & don't overbake them, otherwise you will have rock-hard protein doggy biscuits for Fido.

Makes 9 scones. The following macros are for the basic mix, not including the raisins. Remember, any add-ins will change these numbers:
