Currant Scones 1

It is the day after Christmas most of the family is still sleeping but I love waking up early to see the dawn. I am making scones as part of the breakfast.  Even though not everyone is gluten free, these scones are so good they won’t even know the difference.

I love scones, but since I am gluten free I haven’t had any for many years.  I came across a recipe from Elana’s Pantry for Cranberry Walnut Scones which are fabulous.  Here I adapted her recipe to make my favorite flavor, Currant Scones.

They are made in a food processor with blanched almond flour and little baking soda processed together. Then add in an egg,  2 Tb coconut sugar and lemon zest.  Process until the mixture comes together.  Pour the mixture into a bowl and mix in the currants by hand.  I literally use my hands.  I love the feel of dough in my hands.

Gather up the dough into a ball and pat it into a circle about 1″ thick.  Cut dough like a pizza, into 8 slices. Using a spatula move slices onto a parchment lined baking sheet, leaving 2 inches between.  Bake at 350° for 12-16 minutes until edges are browned.  Serve warm with organic cultured  butter or jam.  Enjoy but don’t eat too many, they are so good it is hard to stop.

Since I love scones so much I can see I will be making many more varieties in the future.

    These scones are wonderful for breakfast or anytime for a great treat. The first time I made them with a jumbo egg and the dough was a little too moist and sticky. The next time I used the recommended large egg and they were perfect!

    These were absolutely delicious! The recipe was perfect and easy to follow. Once the scones were made, I couldn’t stop eating. What I loved most is that they were exactly what my body needed. Can’t wait to make them again.
