Kid Chef Chocolate Chip Cherry Scones

Kids discover that the best tasting treat is fruit that is fresh, local, in season, and organic. Eating cherries while picking them make a great snack!  Cherries also delicious juiced, in sauces, in oatmeal, in preserves, in lemonade, and salads. Cherries are rich in antioxidants, fight inflammations, and relieve stress. Kids can make cherry scones that are great for breakfast, snack or dessert.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Kids can wash, cut in half, and remove the pits of fresh organic cherries to fill 1 cup. In a small bowl, mix the cherries with ¼ cup organic chocolate chips, 1 tsp organic maple syrup, 1 tsp cane sugar, and ½ tsp vanilla. Add ¼ cup of organic whole wheat pastry flour, stirring to cover the berries. In a large bowl combine 1 ½ cup organic whole wheat pastry flour, ¼ cup organic sugar, 1 tbsp baking powder, 1 tsp arrowroot starch, ¼ tsp sea salt. Cut into this mixture 1/3 cup cold organic vegan butter. Kids can mix with a fork until mixture has a coarse crumb consistency. Add the cherry mixture. Mix ½ cup organic almond milk into the flour mixture and stir until well blended. Turn dough onto a floured bread board and knead gently 8 to 10 times. Roll into a 6” round and cut into 8 equal wedges. Place wedges 1” apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake 15 – 17 minutes, until lightly browned.
