Protein Hot Cross Scones? This recipe will blow you away.
These Protein Hot Cross Scones are a lot heartier than buns – they have more body, more density and they pack heftier punch of protein! They are also coconutty and almost biscuity in texture. Kind of like coconut scones!
1/2 cup liquid egg whites
1/4 cup unflavoured whey protein powder
1/2 cup rolled oats
3 tablespoons pea protein powder
1/4 cup Greek yogurt (2%)
3 tablespoons vanilla stevia
2 tablespoons coconut flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons orange rind
Then, for the ‘cross’:
1 tablespoon coconut flakes
1 tablespoon Greek yogurt
1/2 tablespoon vanilla stevia
1. Blend all the ingredients together and spoon the ensuing batter on a cookie tray to form six large bun-shapes.
2. Then, blend together the ‘cross’ ingredients and shape a cross on each bun. Chop some dates or raisins up and mix them into the batter before you put it on the cookie tray!
3. Set your oven to 180 C (356 F) and bake everything for about 15-20 minutes. DO NOT over-bake because they’ll turn dry and make you sad when you eat them. So remove them as soon as your knife comes out clean when you stab them.
