Mocha Pecan Scones

Happy Monday! Hope all of you enjoyed your weekend! I whipped up these mocha pecan scones for my kids this morning and lets just say they were inhaled! Yay! The best feeling is making healthy foods for your family and they enjoy it, but more so they are gaining the nutrition from the ingredients in the food you make. I have used raw pecans, walnuts, almonds and cashews and have blended them to make a flour (one at a time not all nuts together). You can use any nut or seed and grind and it will make a great flour for scones. Sunflower seeds and cashews have more moisture and will stick together more than the other nuts. I love using pecans because they have a sweeter taste than walnuts. Almond flour is great too, but I try to switch it up. I blended raw pecans to make a cup of flour, just use a blender, they will blend very quickly and easily. Add in one egg, a dash of salt, dash of baking soda, a tsp chia seeds, 1 tbsp of honey or maple syrup and about a 1/4th tsp of organic coffee grounds. Blend entire mix together. Add in dark chocolate chips or chunks and spoon onto a greased pan. I then added more chocolate chunks on top. This made about 12 small scones, double recipe for more! Bake on 350 for about 12-14 minutes and enjoy! Love these? You will LOVE my RAW BARS! I now sell my very own Green & Fit Mama Raw Bar Kits so you can mix and freeze your own yummy raw bars!
