Hemp Protein Almond Scones
Who doesn’t love a delicious scone! Scones should be moist and tender and don’t have to be full of refined sugar or flour. And, they’re easy to “veganize”.
A classic scone recipe contains animal sources of protein from milk and eggs, so in our vegan we want to make sure it contains a good source of protein. Our CBD Armour Hemp Protein is the ideal source of protein for vegans and vegetarians who are trying to optimise their health and / or supplement their protein intake. It’s high in fibre, rich in healthy omega 3 and 6 and 100% organic and natural. You can just grab yours from our shop now because it is a key ingredient for our vegan almond scones recipe.
What else will you need? Here’s the full list of ingredients for 8 servings:
Yield 8 servings
- 3 cups of almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of almond oil
- 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan salt
- 1/3 cup coconut oil (not melted)
- 1/3 cup maple syrup
- 1 flax egg (that’s just 1 tablespoon ground flax seed + 3 tablespoons water)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup of applesauce
- 1 tablespoon of CBD Armour Hemp Protein
All you need now is a bowl and approximately 30 minutes of your time.
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celcius.
2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Add the coconut oil, maple syrup, flax egg, applesauce, almond oil and vanilla extract.
4. Mix until you’re working with a thick dough. Mix it with your hands. It’s more fun to go back to basics get up close and personal with your food. So put down your spatula.
6. On a floured surface, form the dough into a circle that is roughly an inch deep all around and cut into 8 slices, just like you would a pie.
7. Place separated slices onto baking sheet with a silicone mat or covered with parchment paper and bake for 12 – 15 minutes.
Serve your almond scones for breakfast or a late afternoon snack with strawberry jam or soy butter and enjoy them with a hot cup of tea.
