Chocolate and Cherry Scones

There are two things you can never go wrong with; fresh cherries and dark chocolate! These scones were thrown together and are perfect for dessert or an on-the-go breakfast. Spread a nut butter on them or pair it with eggs and you’re set. My friend loves these and refers to them as “cookie pies” haha. I’m sold for anything that tastes like a cookie and a pie!

The Good in this? Dark chocolate is a good source of iron and various other minerals,  and cherries are full of potassium, antioxidants and vitamin A.
