It’s a very tasty #TASTEBUDTUESDAY!!! This recipe will really knock it out of the park for those coffee drinkers out there.

Chocolate Chip Protein Scones
2 1/4 cups Pastry Flour Blend
heaping ½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup sugar
1 scoop Silver Star Nutrition Natural
2 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
⅜ cup cold unsalted butter (cut into cubes)
¾ cup cream (half & half, light, heavy, or whipping)
2 large eggs
1/2 cup raisins
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 ½ cups chocolate chips (or white chocolate chips)
Demerara sugar (or coarse white sparkling sugar, for topping)

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Lightly grease (or line with parchment) a baking sheet.

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, sugar, and baking powder until thoroughly combined. Add the butter, working it in until the mixture is unevenly crumbly.

Whisk together the cream, eggs, and vanilla. Set aside 2 tablespoons, and add the rest to the dry ingredients, along with the chocolate chips and raisins. Mix to form a moist dough.

Transfer the sticky dough to a heavily floured rolling mat. Gently pat and round it into an 8″ circle. Brush the dough with the reserved egg/cream mixture, and sprinkle heavily with coarse sugar.

Dip a 2″ round cutter in flour, and use it to cut; you’ll have to gather the scraps and reshape the dough once. Space the scones evenly on the prepared pan.

Bake the scones for 20 minutes, until they’re golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and serve warm.
