Cinnamon Flax Protein Scones

Scott and I have been busy working on a new, exciting (secret) project! Lots of meetings, deadlines, and late nights means not as much baking buuuuut I still managed to get some time in (we need fuel for all the brainstorming – duh!!).

These Cinnamon Flax Protein Scones are a great snack and go perfectly with coffee…as I sit down with my millionth cup this week.

I don’t really know if they’re technically scones because the texture is much chewier and not very crumbly, but I shaped ’em like scones, so that’s what we’re going to call them. Either way, they’re delicious, and each one packs 7 grams of protein! That’s pretty awesome for a baked good, if I do say so myself.

Because they’re not too crumbly, they travel really well, and I’m planning on making them for my trip to Denver for Mother’s Day. What’s better than a homemade scone with a cup of overpriced, stupidly hot coffee at a crowded airport?

On that note, have a fantastic Mother’s Day weekend, everyone!!

Cinnamon Flax Protein Scones

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes Mix*
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 2 tbsp turbinado sugar, or other sweetener
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 2 tbsp plain Greek yogurt

*You could try using regular pancake mix and add your own protein powder (1 c mix + 2 scoops protein powder), but I haven’t personally done this, so I can’t vouch for the results!

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In one bowl, mix Kodiak mix, baking powder, ground flaxseed, sugar, and cinnamon. Add Greek yogurt and milk, mixing until just incorporated.

Divide into 8 balls and shape into triangles; arrange evenly on baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes.
