I used to love eating a scone for breakfast. Then I realized scones are usually very high in calories, and low in nutrients. Scones are not the best option for breakfast because they a bunch of sugar and low levels of protein. I was craving those chocolate chip scones I used to get on campus and thought, there must be a way to update those sugar rich, high calorie treats.
Even this “healthified” recipe should be considered a treat. These scones have much higher levels of protein, nutrients, as well as lower sugar and calorie counts.
These healthier scones have only 115 calories, and 6 grams of protein. Each scone has only 3 grams of sugar, 2 grams of fat, and 19 grams of carbohydrates. A much better alternative than those purchased at the grocery store or bakery. Leftovers can be frozen and popped in the microwave or toaster oven in the morning.
Do you have a favorite breakfast food that needs a health makeover? I can think of a bunch- poptarts, toaster pastries, and sugary cereals–there are healthier alternatives, and I will soon have updated recipes!
