White Chocolate Pumpkin Protein Scones

Do you ever have baking “fails” that really turn out to be a bullseye, just not in the way you were expecting? I was really wanting to make some protein cookies, so I set out to do just this. However, by the time I was done baking the batch, I realized they were not very cookie like in texture, but couldn’t figure out what it was. The taste was really great, but again, just not a cookie. I let my mom try one to see what her thoughts were. She thought about it, then said they reminded her of a scone. I gave it a second thought and had to agree with her <3!
