Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Scwaffles (or just Scones)
We have a new invention for you: the scwaffle (ska-waffle). It's a scone baked in a waffle iron and it is the result of a genius idea by the little mini chef. I was skeptical of her idea at first, but these treats turned out perfectly and there was NO sticking on the waffle iron. Bonus! Another win, waffles cook way faster than scones.
The recipe is from the cookbook that came with our new Vitamix. It has less butter than some scone recipes and includes peanut butter (yay for a protein boost!). We used a mix of white chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips. The white chocolate is for a little extra sweetness since there isn't much sugar in the recipe.
Amy and Des ate these for breakfast and I grabbed a few to fuel my treadmill run.
Here are the ingredients you need to gather:
2 cups of all-purpose flour (we used gluten-free cup4cup)
1/4 of sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 stick of cold butter, cut into 8 pieces
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
2/3 cup of milk
1/2 cup of peanut butter (we used the natural kind that is liquidy - easier to pour and measure!)
Here's the equipment you need:
large mixing bowl
mixing spoon, measuring cups, measuring spoons
These are the procedures from the Vitamix cookbook. We followed them exactly because Amy is a stickler for recipe following. If you don't have a Vitamix or blender, use you'll just have to improvise…and use your muscles. I won't tell Amy.
We divided the dough and made half of it into scones and cooked the rest as mini waffles.
