Mornings can be hard. Sometimes they require a little extra spoiling, like with these Salted Caramel Chocolate Scones. You’re sure to start the day off right with one of these dunked in your coffee.

Have I told you about my breakfast routine? I seriously eat the same thing for breakfast every single morning.

Old-fashioned oats + flax seeds + raisins + sunflower seeds + agave + almond milk.

Every day without fail. It fills me up. It keeps me warm. It feels healthy. It’s just my go-to.

It’s so much of a routine that I even measured out pre-portioned oatmeal packets so I can just pour it all right into a bowl every morning. If you follow me on Snapchat (which, duh, you should be), you’ve seen these oatmeal packets in action.

Mornings are just so routine for me. Oatmeal in the microwave, empty the dishwasher, pour my second cup of coffee, agave and almond milk on the oatmeal, to the table with my latest book. Same thing every single day.

I create these routines in my life in order to make my healthy habits become just that, habits.

Just like my breakfast routine, I know that every morning, my alarm goes off at 4:30, I snooze once, and then I’m right out of bed at 4:40. That’s just how it is.

And on Wednesdays and Fridays, after I take my kid to school, I have 45 minutes of work to do before I have to leave for Zumba class.

Routines. I thrive on routines and habits. I personally love the school year because of the routine we’re forced to stick to. Summer and winter breaks make me crazy because of the lack of routine and structure.

As a mom, it can be so easy to get stuck in the routines. Especially because I have a kid who thrives on them too.

But there comes a time where things need to be switched up a bit, you know?

Every so often, we, as women, deserve something special. Something out of the ordinary. A day where all schedules and routines and thrown out the window. A day when dessert comes before the meal. A day when Netflix binges are totally called for. A day when a midday nap is welcome. A day when we get chocolate for breakfast.

Sometimes, I really need to let my routine fly away and guide my day by my feelings and intuitions. Sometimes, I need to say no way to another pre-portioned packet of oatmeal.

Instead, I will grab for the Salted Caramel Chocolate Scones. And my friend, I highly suggest that you do too because… YUM!

These special days don’t come often. Chocolate for breakfast is way too out of my routine to make it a normal thing. But on the days that I do give in to these special treats, I have learned to savor each and every single bite, knowing that they are rarities.

You know what the awesome thing is though? Even when I’m sticking to my routine of oats, I always find a way to indulge in my coffee. Every morning, it really is like a treat when I flavor my mug-ful with flavored creamer, like International Delight’s Simply PureThe dessert-like flavor in every sip is exactly what I need to start every day. What I love about this creamer is that it’s not full of a bunch of crap like many of the other brands. With just 5 simple ingredients, they offer a new way to enjoy the coffee you love.

Life may be full of routines, schedules, and monotony, but I find it so important to take at least a couple days a month to really find the enjoyment and pleasure out of the little things. Maybe it’s an hour or so reading on the porch. Maybe it’s baking with a wine glass in hand and your favorite tunes in the background.

Or maybe it’s just a simple mug of rich flavorful coffee before your day gets crazy. Don’t let life move so fast that you aren’t able to stop and enjoy it.

Save Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 egg separated
  • 3 Tablespoons honey or brown rice syrup
  • 1/2 cup caramel coffee creamer (I used International Delight Simply Pure caramel)
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup caramel chips
  • sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cocoa powder.
  3. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly, using a pastry blender. You should have little pea-size balls throughout this mixture.
  4. Separate the egg white and the yolk. Set the egg white aside.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix together the egg yolk, honey, and coffee creamer. Add to the dry mixture and mix until just combined.
  6. You don't want to work it too much or it won't turn out quite as flaky. You don't want a cookie batter consistency. Just barely mixed.
  7. Add chocolate and caramel chips.
  8. Form dough into a ball on a floured surface. Roll or pat out to half an inch in thickness and eight inches in diameter. Cut into eight equally-sized pieces.
  9. Transfer to a greased or sil-pat-lined baking sheet. Whisk the egg white until froth forms and brush over the tops of scones. Sprinkle sea-salt on top.
  10. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, until slightly hardened on the edges.

    I am not a routine person at all; I try to be, but I’m just not wired that way. That being said, I do have to have my breakfast and coffee every single day, and these scones would be an amazing treat to indulge in! Yum! Thanks for sharing these with Merry Monday.
