Servings 6


  • 1 1/2 cups chickpea flour can sub for oat or all-purpose
  • 1 1/2 servings 37g Nuzest Probiotic Vanilla Protein (code: thekellykathleen)
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp orange zest
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar + 1 tbsp dairy-free milk + 1 tsp orange zest


  1. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients except for the butter.
  2. Once combined, cut in the cubed butter with a fork until it resembles coarse chunks (should be slightly bigger than pea-sized).
  3. Pop the bowl into your freezer and preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  4. While the oven is preheating, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and do a few minutes of self-care.
  5. Once the oven has reached baking temperature, place the chilled dough on your baking sheet.
  6. Using your hands (wet them, it helps!) pat the dough out into a circle that's 1 1/2 inches thick.
  7. Cut the circle into 6 mini triangles and bake for 12 minutes.
  8. Let them completely cool before glazing!


  1. Whisk the ingredients in a small bowl. 

  2. Dunk or spoon the glaze over the scones.

  3. Let them sit on a cooling wrack to harden
