Maple Pecan Scones

I made these over my rainy Southern California weekend. They were inspired by a recipe at my work, but I tweaked it a bit. I also brought them to the Team workout at the gym. What can I say? I’m a generous person who loves to share delicious items. Ok, that’s only half true. I also didn’t want to have 13 scones laying around my kitchen all weekend, begging to be eaten.

This one got a bit more “frosting” than “glaze”

Maple Pecan Scones

3/4 c. coconut flour
1/4 c. almond flour
1/2 c. coconut oil, melted
1/2 c. maple syrup
3/4 c. chopped pecans
8 eggs
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
dash of cinnamon and nutmeg

Glaze

5 dates, soaked
3 Tbsp. coconut milk
1 Tbsp. water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt

  1. In a large bowl, blend together eggs, vanilla, and maple syrup.
  2. Slowly add oil while blending.
  3. Add flours, salt, and spices. Mix thoroughly. Let sit for 5 mins.
  4. Fold in pecans.
  5. Bake at 375 for 7-8 mins. Add glaze (see below). Bake additional 3-5 mins.

Glaze:

  1. Blend all ingredients in a high powered blender.
  2. Drizzle or dollop on scones halfway through their baking time.

The whole scone family, waiting to be eaten by hungry CrossFit beasts

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌢 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad πŸ₯‘πŸ‹πŸŒΆπŸ₯’
This was SO EASY to throw together.
.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
.
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈπŸ₯—β˜€οΈ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
.
Be back later!
