    Cranberry Almond Protein Scones

    Cranberry Almond Protein Scones - a sweet treat packed with dried cranberries, protein powder and orange zest, drizzled with an almond glaze.
    Thank goodness we can now listen to Christmas music all we want without getting the stink eye from our not-as-festive family members…it’s officially the Christmas season and we couldn’t be more thrilled!

    One of the best parts about the Christmas season is, of course, the food. We’re all about the food. Especially when it involves warm Cranberry Almond Protein Scones with ooey-gooey sweet almond glaze. Yum. Like, we’re ok with Christmas all year round if everyone else if ok with that? Ok, glad that’s settled.

    Cranberry Almond Protein Scones - a sweet treat packed with dried cranberries, protein powder and orange zest, drizzled with an almond glaze.
    These scones are a holiday version of our Berry Scones. They are a very similar recipe, except that these bad boys are loaded with Orgain’s Vanilla Protein Powder because, well, it’s the BOMB.com when it comes to plant-based protein powders.

    These scones are deliciously pretty, and they hold up very well…meaning that they make the perfect neighbor gifts for the holiday season. They also freeze beautifully, so feel free to make a giant batch and freeze half to whip out for your Christmas morning brunch.
