You may not have realized, but scones don’t need to be made with wheat flour. These gorgeous scones, made from nut flour, are flavorful and sweet, gentle and crumbly on your tongue, and full of nourishing ingredients. Whether you’re wheat-sensitive or simply curious, these scones are the perfect treat if you’re looking for a sweet, nutritious something to enjoy with your morning tea or coffee.
1 1/3 cups cashew or almond flour
1/2 cup arrowroot flour
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 tsp. fresh lemon peel, chopped fine
3 tbsp. maple syrup
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine cashew flour, arrowroot flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl.
In a second bowl, combine coconut oil, maple syrup, lemon peel, vanilla, and egg.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, and stir with a spatula to form a well-combined dough.
Gently fold in blueberries.
Pour batter into a round 9-inch pan. Bake 30 minutes, until crust turns golden brown.
Allow to cool 10-15 minutes. Use a sharp knife to cut into 6 beautiful wedges.
