Baked: Scone: Chocolate Chip Scone
Chocolate chip scones doesn't sound like the most wholesome meal. But let's take a look at what we're doing here. Almond flour for healthy fat and protein. Unsweetened applesauce to replace some of the oil in the recipe. Raw honey as a more natural, less damaging sweetener. Finally, 85% cocoa chocolate for great antioxidants—and rich flavor, of course. There's a lot of great benefits in these scones that you won't find at Starbucks. This is why it pays to take control over what you're eating.

- Pinch of salt
