Strawberry Protein Scones

These scones are the perfect on the go breakfast or can be thoroughly enjoyed with a cup of coffee, perfect for dunking!

A few tips to make sure your scones turn out flaky but melt in your mouth all at the same time.

·      Make sure you sift your ingredients; this will provide you with a perfectly even pastry.

·      Be sure your coconut oil and yogurt are cold. You do not want an evenly formed dough, weird right?! Small pea size balls are what you are looking for.

·      If your strawberries are wet, pat them dry with a towel as they can add too much moisture to your dough. We highly advise against frozen strawberries! Big no no.

·      Your scones should be just a slight golden brown on the edges while still having a doughy white hue. Be sure to refrigerate, best when reheated! Enjoy!

2 cups organic unbleached all-purpose flour

4 scoops Ascent Strawberry Whey Protein

1/4 cup Stevia

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt

Whisk 1 egg, 1 tsp pure vanilla extract and ¼ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk in a separate bowl.


Using a tabletop or hand mixer on the lowest setting, slowly add in your wet ingredients. Your dough should start to form, this will happen quickly. You want a chunky dough, do not over mix.

Sprinkle cold counter surface with flour, remove dough from bowl and form dough into a flat but round shape.


Slice into 8 pie pieces.


Place scones on a parchment paper lined baking sheet or Silpat. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.


Remove scones from oven when they are just a slight golden brown on the edges while still having a doughy white hue.


Let stand until completely cool.


With the 2 remaining scoops of Strawberry Ascent Whey Protein, ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk and 1 organic strawberry, smash the strawberry with a fork and vigorously whisk in protein powder and almond milk until smooth. This will make your glaze.


Using a tablespoon, pour glaze over scones. You should have just the right amount to cover all 8 scones!
