Healthy Carrot Cake Scones {gf,v}

Updated: Mar 15, 2021

I've been craving carrot cake every since making my carrot cake granola, so I decided to experiment some more and develop something 'carrot cake' flavored that would be perfect anytime of the day; the result was these amazing and healthy carrot cake scones with a special drizzle. They're sweet and spiced, and made with nutrient rich ingredients, such as rolled oats, almond flour, walnuts, pure maple syrup, almond butter, and of course, fresh carrots! Not only are they delicious, but they're so simple to make. I pretty much threw everything into a food processor and let it do the work to form the dough. These are perfect warmed up for breakfast with some almond milk, crumbled on top of yogurt, or enjoyed as a late night snack!
