These are delicious. A nice balance of sweet and not-too-sweet. A great dessert that doesn’t feel decadent but is still a great chocolate fix!
- 1 1/4 cups spelt flour (or whole wheat pastry flour)
- 2 cups oat flour (I make my own from rolled oats using a food processor)
- 2 Tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 4 Tbsp cocoa
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 4 Tbsp maple syrup
- 5 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
- 1 cup unsweetened original almond milk (or other non-dairy milk of your choice)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
Combine the dry ingredients (1st list) in a large bowl and mix well. In a small bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (2nd list). Preheat oven to 400. Add wet ingredients to dry and stir until just combined.
Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using damp hands, form scone shapes of your favorite size and shape (about an inch thick). I was able to make about 14 cupcake size scones. Bake for 16 minutes. Cool a bit and enjoy warm!
