Lightened Up Cinnamon Eggnog Scones + GIVEAWAY!

Lightened Up Cinnamon Eggnog Scones Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

Have you already stuffed yourself with all kinds of candy, cookies, and baked goods? Or are you waiting until later this week to really dig in? Christmas is just a few days away, and I’m sure that most of us have already had more sweets than normal! This time of year can be difficult as far as staying healthy. We’re constantly bombarded with holiday parties, family gatherings, work parties, etc. But it’s no fun to eat only salads and skip the holiday sweets! It’s about time that we had a way to enjoy holiday sweets without having to load up on refined sugars and fat!

Lightened Up Cinnamon Eggnog Scones from A Kitchen Addiction

Enter these lightened up cinnamon eggnog scones. Tender flaky scones loaded with cinnamon, nutmeg, and, of course, eggnog. That’s what you’ll be tasting. What your taste testers won’t know is that these scones are made with half whole wheat flour, yogurt, and a blend of pure, unrefined coconut and cane sugars! You can have lots of flavor that you crave this time of year without blowing your allotment of fat and sugar for the day! My friends over at Madhava Sweeteners want to encourage you to have “Healthier Holidays” this year. They even helped with this scone makeover.

Madhava Better Baking Blend

Madhava sent me their Organic Better Baking Blend. This blend of coconut and cane sugars is all-natural, organic, and made with non-GMO ingredients. Plus, it can be used on a 1:1 ratio to replace sugar in your favorite recipes!  You can keep the holidays sweet while making smarter choices for your health. (Be sure to read through to the end of the post to find out how you can enter to win Madhava Sweeteners products for yourself and how you can win weekly prizes from them through their Facebook page!) No need to deprive yourself of holiday favorites!

These scones are proof of that! Serve them up as part of a Christmas brunch or for a little something special for Christmas Eve. Both your taste buds and your body will thank you!

So, as you enter into all of the Christmas celebrations later this week, try giving some of your sweets a nutritional boost by using yogurt in place of some butter, whole wheat flour for some all-purpose, and by subbing Madhava Better Baking Blend for the sugar in the recipe! You won’t be disappointed. Also, be sure to check out their other products that can help you through this holiday season and help you get the new year started off right!
