Protein Cranberry Orange Scones

Protein Cranberry Orange Scones

I had a bridal consult with a wonderful bride this summer.  At the consult she hosted the most adorable brunch I had ever seen! I know how sweet, right?  Featured at her brunch were these Cranberry Orange Scones from Elana’s Pantry.  From the first bite I was hooked, no joke you almost had to tear me away from the plate to actually do my job! She told me they were so easy to make. I did not believe her because scones sound fancy and I am just not that fancy nor am I a baker.

This past weekend I hosted a brunch and I couldn’t get these scones out of my head.  I decided to accept the challenge and make them with a little twist.  To add my Jenny healthy flare I added protein powder to reduce the carbs and add addition protein. Can I say they were as easy as she said and so delicious! If you are hosting a brunch this weekend or in the near future do yourself a favor and try these scones out.

  • 1 cup almond flower

  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
