Peanut butter and chocolate together. What more could a person want?
This is one of my favorite combinations. These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones are a delicious snack or breakfast. I’m always looking for new ways to add a little protein to my snacks. Peanut butter, eggs, and yogurt do the trick in this recipe.
I like these scones best with gluten-free flour, but they’re good with white whole wheat flour too. The texture will be fairly tender for a scone as long as you don’t leave them in the oven too long. The whole wheat version is a bit drier than the gluten-free one, so make sure the dough is nice and sticky if you’re using whole wheat flour.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scones
$.58 per scone
- 2 1/4 cups gluten-free flour or white whole wheat
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup melted coconut oil room temperature
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/3 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup whole milk yogurt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place the flour, baking powder, and salt in a food processor fitted with the dough blade and process to mix.
Slowly add the melted coconut oil through the opening in the food processor. Process until you have a crumb-like texture.
In a medium bowl, stir together the maple syrup, peanut butter, yogurt, and eggs. Add them to the food processor through the opening at the top and process briefly until a smooth dough forms. The less you process it, the better. The dough will be sticky, but you should be able to handle it. If it’s too sticky to handle, add another tablespoon or two of flour.
Transfer the dough to a mixing bowl. Add the chocolate chips to the dough and stir or knead briefly to distribute them evenly.
Divide the dough into 12 round pieces, and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake for 16 to 20 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
