Gingerbread Protein Scones

At 100 calories and 7.5 grams protein per scone, the only thing I require in life besides these doughy pillows of goodness is a strong cup of coffee…..and maybe a nap. All the naps.

Like I mentioned in a previous scone post (cinnamon flax…mmm), I have to admit that I use the term “scone” fairly loosely. This might be more of a biscuit? I don’t know. All I know is that it tastes good, and therefore I need to provide the world with the recipe. You’re welcome, world.

I made my own gingerbread spice mix using THIS recipe, but I’m sure you could also find a pre-made mix. I know gingerbread is more of a Christmas-y spice, but as far as I’m concerned, if it’s cold out (which it STILL IS most mornings in Seattle, ugh), then gingerbread and all those delicious warming spices still apply.

Gingerbread Protein Scones


Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes mix*
  • 1 scoop unflavored whey protein powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp gingerbread spice
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips (optional)

*You could try 1 1/4 cup biscuit or pancake mix + 3.5 scoops protein powder instead, but I can’t guarantee that they’ll turn out the same


Directions

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

In one bowl, mix Kodiak mix, baking powder, and gingerbread spice. Add maple syrup and milk, mixing until just incorporated.

Divide into 8 balls and shape into triangles; arrange evenly on baking sheet. Top with chocolate chips, if desired.

Bake for 15 minutes, and enjoy when cool!
