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
- 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!
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.
