Peanut butter and chocolate scones

Peanut butter and chocolate scones |
Now don’t give me that look! I know what you’re thinking : tempting you with chocolate so early in the day. But I love you so much and I could NOT forgive myself if I keep this recipe to myself.
Despite the heaviness of the peanut putter these scones are light, fluffy with a mild peanut butter flavor. The smell coming from the oven while these scones are baking will make everyone come and see what you’re baking.
Those of you that already have breakfast can print  the recipe and make it tomorrow morning. Those who are thinking about breakfast I’m wondering why you’re not hitting the print button and run in the kitchen. You really should make these scones.
We’re talking peanut butter and chocolate here! Don’t think I have to tell you how insanely delicious these are!
I mean, com’on, look at them and tell me you don’t crave one!

To make these scones it’s fairly easy. All you need are a couple of ingredients (which I’m pretty sure you already have on hand) a food processor (makes your work lot easier) and a baking tray or scone pan.
Start by measuring your flour, baking powder, sugar, butter and peanut butter.
Add them to the food processor with a pinch of salt and pulse a couple of times until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Through the feeding tube add enough milk to make the dough hold it’s shape. It should have the consistency of molding clay.
Place the mixture into a bowl and fold in the chocolate chips.
With your hands form a disc and press down on the scone pan (if using one) or put it on a baking sheet and with a sharp knife cut it into 8 triangles.

Peanut butter and chocolate scones (vegan)
Peanut butter and chocolate scones |
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
pinch of salt
1/4 cup sugar in the raw
3 tbsp. chilled vegan butter cut in cubes
1/4 cup creamy unsalted peanut butter (I advice you to pick the one that doesn’t have any other ingredients except peanuts)
~6 tbsp. almond milk
1/4-1/3 cup (mini) vegan chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 425F. Grease your scone pan if using or line parchment paper on a baking sheet. Set aside.
In a food processor add the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, butter and peanut butter. Pulse a couple of times until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Through the feeding tube slowly add the almond milk. The dough should resemble modeling clay. If it’s too dry add a few more drops of milk, if too wet add a little more flour.
Take the dough out of the food processor and place it in a bowl. Mix in the chocolate chips. I used 1/3 cup but if you’re not a big fan of chocolate chips you can add 1/4 cup or  less or simply skip them.
Shape the dough into a disc. Press it down onto the scone pan or lay it on the baking sheet. Cut it into 8 triangles.
Bake it for about 18 minutes until golden.

    What an original idea for scones Roxana. I love the idea of the chocolate chips, but would not have thought about adding peanut butter. Will definitely give these a try.
    Have a great week.

  15. Kitchen Belleicious says

    Okay these look delicious and although I am intrigued by the ingredients and the ability you have to make something so wonderful I am also memorized by the pan you baked them in? where did you get it and I need one!

  16. Junia says

    peanut butter and chocolate are my two favorite combinations of flavors. i seriously love the scone pan you have! i've been eyeing one for awhile. i am afraid of vegan butter… haven't mustered up the courage to use it yet!

  17. Elisabeth says

    Roxana-your vegan chocolate scones look so incredible! I used to have a cast iron skillet like that, and I'm so sad that I got rid of it…just donated it to Goodwill, and now I can't find one like that!
    Your vegan scones look yummy, and a recipe that I would like to try!

  18. Amber, RD says

    I have never seen a scone pan like that. It looks like it would be really handy! I just posted today on pumpkin scones, but I love all things that have chocolate and PB!

  19. Rebecca from Chow and Chatter says

  21. Laurel @ Lolly's Sweet Treats says

    Peanut butter and chocolate is a glorious combination and what better way than to start your day off with it!

  22. Jeanette says

    Who could resist the combination of peanut butter and chocolate – would love to get my hands on one of those scone pans.

  23. motherrimmy says

    I love your scone pan! I have to find one and try this peanuty scone recipe. I have a feeling my husband will love them for Sunday breakfast with his coffee!

  24. Nami | Just One Cookbook says

    I love your scones Roxana. This kind of combination is hard to get at bakery store – you know they have typical scones flavors, but not PB&Chocolate. I love scones more than muffins or cupcakes. It's a perfect breakfast for me. Once I start baking scones, I will definitely buy this pan. It looks so cool and never seen it besides your blog!

  25. julie says

    Oh man… chocolate AND peanut butter? In a delicious hot scone? You've definitely got my attention. Those look amazing!

  26. aipi says

    Vegan cooking has been fascinating me a lot lately, maybe its time for me to take the leap..especially seeing such wonderful possibilities.
    I love the pictures of your beautiful scones n that iron skillet is awesome too..

  27. scrambledhenfruit says

    I love peanut butter and chocolate and these are much more civilized to eat for breakfast than a Reese's cup. :) They look yummy!

  28. raquel says

    hi roxana, love your recipe here… I love baking cookies and cakes too …I hope I could taste one of your creation…but I will also look forward to try this.

  29. Feast on the Cheap says

    What a fantastic combo! Never thought of peanut butter in my scones and the addition of chocolate – perfection!

  30. lisa is cooking says

    Scones are a big favorite in my house, and I baked them frequently, but I've never made peanut butter scones. I need to and soon!

  31. FOODESSA says

    Never truly been a fan of scones…however, I do make exception if they are as you mention…fluffy and light. Of course, the yummy ingredients do manage to sway me a little more your way Roxana ;o)
    Love that skillet!

    Ciao for now,
