#MotivationMonday – Swap It don’t Deprive It!

This week I am tackling the idea that deprivation is the only path to weight loss! Because it reality deprivation only leads to a yo-yo of weight loss and weight gain caused by the inevitable binge post deprivation! Check out my #MotivationMonday video blog and the recipe I speak about below!


Prep time: 15 minutes

Total time: 30 minutes

Makes 8 scones

Dry Ingredients:

– 2 cups blanched almond flour

– 3/4 teaspoon baking soda

– 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (such as Real Salt)

– 1/3 cup mini dark chocolate chips (preferably 70%+ cacao, organic and vegan)


Wet ingredients:

– 1 jumbo OR 2 small eggs, lightly beaten (you’ll need 1/4 cup of lightly beaten eggs)

– 1/2 teaspoon good quality organic vanilla extract

– 1 tablespoon raw honey



1) Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2) In a large mixing bowl, blend the dry ingredients together.

3) In a small mixing bowl, mix the wet ingredients together. The wet ingredients do not have to be fully mixed, just give them a few spins together to give the mixing a head start.

4) Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients with a large spoon, then mix with your hands to ensure the dough is uniform.

5) Form dough into a one inch thick disk, and cut into 8 same-size pieces, similar to how you would cut a pizza.

6) Place each scone onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned on the edges.

7) Cool for at least 5 minutes then serve. These scones can be kept in an airtight glass container in the refrigerator for up to five days.
