The Best Protein Scones
You cannot go wrong with scones! Although they sound fancy, they are easy to make, and use ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Anyone can make a scone, and if you have 20 minutes, they are a great way to start your day.
One of my favorite activities is taking recipes that I love, and giving them a protein boost, which is exactly what I did here. I took my grandmother’s lemon blueberry scones recipe, and added 40 grams of protein. The results were amazing! These high protein scones are a delightful way to boost your protein intake as they taste like a baked good (not like a protein bar). You will wonder why the heck you ever waste your taste buds on protein shakes.
If you find yourself getting hungry between breakfast and lunch, this protein scone recipe is for you. Thanks to the added protein, these scones are super filling, and will hold you over until your next meal. For someone trying to cut back on snacking, eating more protein is a great place to start.
“I just finished my first bag and ordered 2 more! I Iove this stuff! I have IBS and every protein powder hurts my stomach…except drink wholesome!”
Why drink wholesome?
Adding protein powder to scones is easy, but be mindful that the results can vary depending on which protein powder you use. This recipe was made with drink wholesome vanilla protein powder. It is perfect for baking. Most protein powders are not good for baking because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how many rock-hard pancakes are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.
Now without further ado, here is the best protein scones recipe.
-1 cup flour
-1 cup drink wholesome vanilla protein powder
-1 tsp salt
-1 tsp baking powder
-2 tsp lemon juice
-1/2 cup blueberries
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, protein power, salt, baking powder, lemon juice, and eggs. Carefully fold in the blueberries. On a floured surface, roll the dough into a circle and press it so that it is ¾” inch thick. Cut the dough diagonally (like a pizza) to make 6 slices. Place dough on a prepared baking sheet and bake it for approximately 8-10 minutes, or until the scones start to brown.
