Ingredients

scone ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1 cup cassava flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil room temperature
  • 1/4 cup grass fed butter 4 tablespoons , cold (could use room temp palm oil shortening)
  • 1/2 cup full fat canned coconut milk shaken
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • Blueberry: 1 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries
  • Chocolate Chip: 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • Lemon poppy seed: zest from 1 lemon, 3 tablespoons lemon juice and 3 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • Vanilla almond: 1 teaspoon almond extract and 1/2 cup almond slivers

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add all main scone ingredients to the bowl of a food processor and blend until completely combined, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • For lemon poppyseed scones: Add the lemon zest and poppyseed to the bowl of the food processor and blend again until combined.
  • For vanilla almond cones: add vanilla extract to scones and blend again until combined. Add slivered almonds and stir in by hand with rubber spatula.
  • For blueberry or chocolate chip scones: add blueberries or chocolate chips to the dough and stir by hand with a rubber spatula to combine.
  • Once ingredients are mixed in, dump the dough out onto prepared baking sheet and form into a circle 2 inches high and about 8 inches in diameter. The dough will be a little wet and sticky, this is normal. Bake scones in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes until scones are set.
