Peanut Butter Chip Scones

Serves: 5

Happy Tuesday! I hope you are having a great week! The cold weather has definitely rolled in here! It makes me want to stay snuggled under my blankets all day…or spend the afternoon in my kitchen baking! πŸ™‚

This recipe was made at the request of boyfriend (shocker…peanut butter and chocolate) a few weeks ago. I was talking about scones and he requested a peanut butter chocolate chip version! I don’t think there is anything he doesn’t want in a peanut butter and chocolate version! To make the recipe a bit healthier, I subbed cacao nibs for the chocolate chips, but feel free to swap them out if you aren’t a fan of cacao!

Fit Ingredients

  • 1c (120g) peanut flour
  • 1/2c (56g) almond flour
  • 1tbs (7g) coconut flour
  • 1/2c baking stevia (adjust to your desired sweetness level)
  • 2tsp baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 c coconut milk (carton)
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4c (28g) cacao nibs (or mini chocolate chips)

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

  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper
  • non stick spray

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

Directions

1. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Spray the paper with non stick spray.

3.Β  Pre heat your oven to 425 degrees.

4. In a bowl combine your dr ingredients: peanut flour, almond flour, coconut flour, stevia and baking powder.

5. In a second bowl whisk together your wet ingredients: eggs, milk and vanilla.

6. Combine your wet and dry ingredients. Mix well. (The dough will be sticky. You do not want it to be runny)

7. Mix in your cacao nibs (or chocolate chips).

8. Divide the batter into 5 balls on your parchment paper.

9. Shape the batter any way you would like. (I like a round/free form shape to give it a more rustic look)

10. Bake for ~ 10minutes.

These scones turned out AMAZING!! So amazing that the boyfriend ate all 4 that I gave him in less than 10 minutes! He said they were ‘banging’! SUCCESS! πŸ™‚ I also thought they were a huge win! I ate mine for breakfast with some greek yogurt and a banana! These are loaded with protein and fiber so it kept me full for almost 5 hours! They would taste even better with some additional peanut butter spread on them! πŸ˜‰

  • OMG! I love Peanut Butter and Chocolate so I'm going to have to make these! Do you use PB2 as your peanut flour or is it specifically peanut flour?

  • These look so delicious! I haven't made scones in awhile, and these healthy ones look like the perfect way to fix that. I'm wondering about the tbsp of coconut flour, do you think I could replace that with a different flour? Or does the coconut add a ton of flavor?

  • I have to agree with the boy, there's not much better than chocolate + peanut butter ;) I loveee it! These look great but similar question to Jessie about the flour...
