Apricot Raspberry Protein Scones….And a Protein Review!

Apricot Raspberry Protein Scones….And a Protein Review!

Serves: 8

Happy Friday Fit Followers! We have finally reached the end of our week, which means it’s time to relax and have some healthy fun! I am really excited to share this recipe with you today for a few reasons; 1) it came out absolutely delicious, 2) it’s super healthy and 3) it uses a new protein powder that I just bought, SunWarrior Raw Vanilla Protein Blend! With all the protein powder types and brands that I already have in my cabinet, I had yet to buy or try this one. I have been eye-balling it for weeks months and never picked it up because it is a large container and I was afraid I wouldn’t like it. A few days ago, I decided to take the leap and get it (yes, I purchased this with my own money. I am not being paid for this review). I had a recipe that I knew I wanted to use it in, so I went straight home, very excited and put it to the test.!I whipped out all my ingredients and started baking….protein powder flying everywhere! ? As soon as I opened the container, this amazing vanilla smell came out. That was the moment I knew I’d like this product! (unless my recipe happen to flop)!

While the scones were in the oven, I sat down to do the nutrition facts. I realized that a very important piece of information was not on the container, the sodium mg’s. Since I like to post the nutrition information of my recipes for you (and I’m conscious of the amount of sodium in my recipes) I immediately went to the SunWarrior website and sent an email asking for this information. Within 2 1/2 hours (yes, I just double checked the email times) I had a response from a wonderful woman named Stephanie! Without hesitation she had given me the information that I needed! Perfect! I honestly did not think I would hear back from someone for at least 24 hours…that’s customer service! I emailed Stephanie back, thanking her and telling her how excited I was to use this protein in my recipes and how I couldn’t wait to share it with my readers….thinking again, that no one would respond. Wrong again! She replied back!! She said she couldn’t wait to check it out herself! **Smiling ear to ear**

I have worked in the fitness industry, a business that requires exceptional customer serve, for quite awhile, but the customer service that Stephanie exemplified was above and beyond! So not only did SunWarrior just win me over with their protein powder, but now with their customer service too! Not to mention, the reason I bought the product was the ‘fit’ ingredient list and nutrition facts…outstanding! Stephanie, if you are reading this, THANK YOU!! For all my fitness buffs and healthy followers out there, I HIGHLY recommend you go buy this (it comes in chocolate too, which I will be adding to my overflowing protein cabinet soon) and integrate it into your “fit ingredient cabinet” :)

Now……on to our “SunWarrior” Apricot Raspberry Protein Scones!

Apricot Raspberry Protein Scones….And a Protein Review!

Don’t they just look so beautiful too???!!!

Fit Ingredients

  • 1/3c (33g) SunWarrior Raw Protein Vanilla
  • 1c (112g) almond flour
  • 1/4c (20g) oats
  • 1/4 c granular stevia (or sweetener of choice)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2c + 1 tbs (138g) liquid egg whites
  • 2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp (about 40 drops) liquid stevia, optional (use depending on how sweet you’d like them)
  • 1/2c (75g) fresh raspberries
  • 1/4c (28g) fresh, frozen or rehydrated dried apricots, diced

Directions

Pre heat your oven to 335 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray with non stick spray. In a bowl mix your protein powder, almond flour, oats, granular stevia/sweetener and baking powder. Give it a quick mix. Add in your liquid egg whites, almond extract and liquid stevia. Mix until blended. Fold in your raspberries and apricots. Scoop into 8 even mounds on your cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. They will feel slightly under done, but they will firm up as they sit.

Ahhh….delicious perfection!

Serve warm or cold, your choice! I had mine the next morning topped with some coconut butter and a side of egg whites! They were delicious!! :) If you left out the fruit, these would also make an excellent base for a strawberry shortcake! If you try it, let me know! Also, you can add whatever mix ins you’d like….fruit, nuts, chocolate (healthy dark chocolate, of course), the possibilities are endless!
