By March 15, 2023May 23rd, 2023Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Paleo, Vegetarian

These tender and sweet Raspberry Lemon Scones have only 8 ingredients and are easy to make. They have a rich lemony taste and are full of juicy raspberries. You’ll love them and they’re gluten free, paleo and dairy-free. The lemon icing makes them extraordinary!  It’s the perfect breakfast treat to enjoy with tea or coffee.

Even though it is cold outside, spring is right around the corner. It’s mid March and the days are getting longer so I’m craving something fresh, springy, and lemony to bring in the spring sunshine. Warm paleo raspberry scones are just the thing to brighten your day. They’re positively delicious.

Steps To Make Paleo Raspberry Scones

These Raspberry Lemon Scones are soo… easy to make. This is a simple one bowl recipe with only 8 ingredients; almond flour, pastured eggs, honey, baking soda, lemon juice and zest, almond extract, sea salt and fresh raspberries (organic is best).

There are only a few steps to make the scones. First, whisk the dry ingredients together in the bowl. Make a hole in the center, add the wet ingredients and mix together.

Gently fold the raspberries into the batter.

Place the dough on a lightly floured (use tapioca flour or coconut flour) baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Press the dough into a 7 inch circle, it should be about 1 inch thick.

Using a very sharp knife, cut the dough into 8 triangular wedges.

Using a rubber spatula, carefully separate the wedges and place them 2” apart on the on the baking sheet.

Bake 20-30 minutes, until the tops are golden brown. Cool on wire rack.

While the scones are cooling make the Lemon Icing, if using. It is optional, the scones are really good plain.

I used organic powdered sugar to make a white lemon icing.  For a paleo option, you can make your own paleo powdered sugar for the icing. (instructions in recipe card).

Mix the powdered sugar with a few teaspoons of lemon juice until smooth. Drizzle over the cooled scones.

Tips For Making Paleo Raspberry Lemon Scones

  • Measure the almond flour using a kitchen scale to get the best results.
  • Don’t over mix the dough. Mix it just until there are no more bits of flour.
  • Use fresh organic raspberries. Frozen raspberry will work but the texture of the scones will be a little more crumbly. I have made them both ways and prefer the fresh raspberries.

Storing Raspberry Lemon Paleo Scones

Store the scones loosely covered at room temperature for one day or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. I like to warm them up in the toaster oven to serve.

They freeze beautifully in an airtight container for 2 months. To thaw, just put them in a cold toaster oven and turn it on to 300 degrees. They are warmed through in about 15 minutes.

These scones make the perfect snack to share with a friend over coffee or tea. They’re also great as a light breakfast, snack, or healthier dessert.

Easy to make, high in protein, tender on the inside, crisp on the outside, not too sweet, full of lemon and juicy raspberries.

Notes

How to make paleo powdered sugar:

  • Add 1/2 cup paleo friendly sugar of choice (maple sugar, coconut sugar or date sugar) to a high-speed blender.
  • Blend on high until it has a powder-like texture, 2-3 minutes.
  • If you’d like it more ‘powder-like’, add 1/2 tablespoon tapioca starch or arrowroot starch to the blender at the beginning. This really helps to get it to be similar to regular powdered sugar.
  • Store left over sugar in a jar for another use.

    I made these with fresh blueberries, no icing and they came out great! However, too sweet for my taste. If I were to reduce the amount of honey to 1 tbsp, any idea how much flour I’d have to take out? Thanks!

      Hi Lily, Thanks for your appreciation. Good question. If you’re using a scale take the flour down to 300 grams. That should work fine. Happy baking.
