Grain Free Blueberry Scones (Gluten/Dairy/ Coconut Free)
These Grain Free Blueberry Scones are amazing!
The past few weeks I have gotten a ton of requests for some scone recipes. How could I resist your requests??
I have created for you a grain free blueberry scone recipe that will make you throw out every other recipe you have ever tried.
If you wanted to- you could swap out the blueberries for other berries too! Have fun with the recipe. Good luck not eating the whole batch within 2-3 hours of making them. GOOD Freakin' luck. You might feel the need to hide them from yourself.
Ps. These scones freeze really well.
Yield: 6-8 Scones
220g Blanched Almond Flour (2 packed Cups)
89g Potato or Sweet Potato Starch (1/2 Cup)
Salt (1/2 tsp)
Baking Soda (see note below) (1/2-3/4 tsp)
88g Butter (dairy or nondairy) (1/2 Cup)
1/2 Cup Sugar (of choice)
2 Large Eggs
Vinegar or Lemon Juice (3/4 tsp)
1 Cup Blueberries, frozen
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a bowl combine the Almond Flour, Starch, Salt and Baking Soda. (Note: Some brands of baking soda are strong tasting, especially those that contain aluminum. So, unless you are using Bob's red mill baking soda I recommend using just 1/2 Tsp. otherwise the flavor may overpower.)
3. To the bowl- add the fat of your choice (Butter, Earth Balance, Bacon Lard or Shortening or any mix of them). Cut the fat into the flour until the fat is about the size of a pea.
4. In a separate small bowl whisk together the sugar, eggs and Vinegar. Pour mixture in with the flour and mix just briefly and gently until the dough comes together. It may feel a little wet.
5. Fold in frozen blueberries.
6. Dust a sheet of parchment, or your counter with additional starch. Gently pat the dough into a round; 6 inches wide and 2 inches thick.
7. Bake for 38-40 minutes. Cover with foil half way through.
8. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
9. Once cooled- using a large knife slice into triangle sized scone pieces!
For the sugar because I wanted to maintain a white color I used a coarsely ground rOrganic Cane Sugar! The smaller the size of the sugar granules the more the scones will spread in the oven. So I don't recommend regular cheap cane sugar.. go for the organic!
You could also use xyltiol or the trivia baking blend to make these guys sugar free! Or of course another granulated sugar like palm sugar, or maple sugar will work great too! They just make your scones slightly darker in color.
I topped my scones with a glaze made from powdered sugar and a tiny bit of lemon juice! To make your own unrefined sugar powdered sugar you can throw any variety of granulated sugar into a coffee grinder or blender and process until powdery!
