How to Make Triple Chocolate Scones

The first step to make Triple Chocolate Scones is making an “egg” with ground flax seed and hot water. Bring three tablespoons of water to a boil and whisk it with one tablespoon of ground flax seed in a medium sized bowl. Then set the mixture aside and preheat the oven to 400°F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking powder. Use a cheese grater to shred the cold butter. Then, use a pastry blender (or your hands) to distribute the butter throughout the dough. When it is ready, the butter should be broken into pea-sized pieces.

Next, add the maple syrup, chocolate milk and vanilla to the “egg” and whisk it well.  Then pour all the liquid into the dry ingredients. Be sure to use chocolate milk with no high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors such as Organic Valley.

Stir the ingredients the best you can–it can be a little tough since scones are dry by nature. Again, you may need to knead the dough with your hands. Once everything is mixed, fold in one cup of dark chocolate chips.

Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and form it into a circle, about one inch thick. Then use a sharp knife to cut it into eight pieces and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake the scones for about 12-14 minutes. When you think they are done, test them with a toothpick. It should come out clean with the exception of melted chocolate. After a few minutes, place the scones on a cooling rack.
