Healthy Date and Chocolate Chip Scones

Healthy Date and Chocolate Chip Scones

Dates + chocolate chips + scones = heaven! I adore all 3 and I find the combination produces something very comforting.

These healthy date and chocolate chip scones can be enjoyed with your morning cup of tea/coffee or as an afternoon snack. Actually they can be enjoyed anytime of the day! I’ve just left them on the kitchen counter so when ever I’m feeling peckish, I can just grab one.

You can warm them up in the oven if the weather is a cold (It’s definitely getting colder where I am!), spread with some jam, honey or just eat them as they are!

These date and chocolate chip scones are dairy free and low in sugar (they can also be sugar free – check recipe). The dates are naturally sweet which means you can get away with using less sugar.
