I like these scones. For something peanut butter, that is. They’re kind of craggy and rustic, and very hearty. And different – I’ve never seen a scone recipe like this. It’s one of the reasons I love the Baked books.
The recipe calls for chunky peanut butter, and there’s even a recipe for chunky peanut butter in the book. I went the complete opposite direction, and used Skippy Super Chunk (the horror).
I made half of these with chocolate chips – and it’s a nice addition. I made the other half without chocolate chips, and Larry tried those with raspberry jam, a take on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I had a bite, but I like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches even less than peanut butter.
I’d like to make make these again, using a homemade chunky almond butter instead of peanut butter. For the recipe and to see how the other Baked Sunday Morning bakers fared, head over to Baked Sunday Mornings.

Looks perfect. I love the rustic quality of these. I made both versions as well and my husband and I were split on them.
They look terrific! Neat that you tried both versions – I wish I had. Tasty but not my favorite BAKED scone!
Your scone looks perfect! I’ll bet they would be great with almond butter.
Beautiful pic :) I’m sure they would work great with almond butter! Great idea :)
Yours look great and just the right size. I thought they were super tasty, but I also love peanut butter.
I love your idea to use almond butter! Your scone is so cute and I love how it is chock full of chocolate chips!
Yours came out great!
Mmm.. I like them as a pb&j sandwich but the almond butter would taste great.
HMM, Makes me wish I had one for breakfast right now-so thick and chock full of yummy goodies-great scone recipe;-)
You’re a trooper for baking something with an ingredient you don’t like! I also think it’s a great idea to try the recipe with almond butter. YUM.
No, these were not traditional scones at all – it seemed funny calling them “scones.” I love almond butter, I bet they would be great with it.
