Gluten-free Post-Workout Recovery Scones

Eating healthy does not have to = boring.
These little scones are a perfect post-workout recovery snack.
The ingredients are the best you can consume after a tough workout while avoiding all the unnecessary added sugars, processed flours, additives and preservatives that your body simply does not need!

Adding some protein powder to the mix that includes ingredients specifically for post-workout recovery is a bonus! 
Convenient, portable and easy to throw in your gym bag to eat right after your workout (eating within a 30 minute window elicits the most efficient recovery to the body)!
Makes 6
1 medium sweet potato, cooked
1 medium apple, peeled, cored and diced
1 egg
5 tblsp Protein Powder**
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
In a food processor, add sweet potato, egg, protein powder and cinnamon.
Gently mix in diced apples with a spatula (at this point, you could also add any extra additions like raisins!).
On a parchment lined cookie sheet, dump 6 evenly portioned mounds of the mixture.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or when firm to the touch.
**Not all protein powders are created equal and many of them contain ingredients that we simply should not consume.  The protein powder featured and used for this recipe – Stronger Faster Healthier – is specifically designed for recovery post-workout.  The ingredients come from grass-fed, free-range animals – the best you can get and worth every penny.
