GRAIN FREE BLUEBERRY SCONES RECIPE (PALEO)
Author: LAURA FUENTES
1¾ cups blanched almond flour, sifted
3 tablespoons coconut flour, sifted
¼ cup honey
¼ cup almond milk (any milk will work), divided [I used Malk!]
3 tablespoons coconut oil, melted (butter will work too) [I used coconut oil!]
1 teaspoon lemon zest
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon sea salt
½ cup blueberries
1. Preheat the oven to 350F
2. Sift your almond and coconut flours directly into a stand mixer. Add honey, egg, 3 tablespoons almond milk, butter, lemon zest, baking soda, and salt to the flours. Mix until a loose dough forms. Gently fold in blueberries.
3. Using your biscuit cutter as a shaper, fill it with ½-3/4 inch of dough. Press it down with your hands to form scone over lined baking sheet and lift cutter as you hold down dough to release. Repeat with remaining dough. [I hand formed the scones!]
4. Brush scones with remaining 1 tablespoon almond milk.
5. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. Allow them to cool down slightly prior to eating.
Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Warm again prior to serving.
I double this recipe and freeze unbaked and shaped scones on a parchment lined sheet. Once frozen, I transfer them to a zip bag and freeze up to 3 months. To bake, remove from freezer while oven preheats and add 2-3 minutes to baking time.
