apple almond scones (gf, paleo)

apple almond sconesI love brunch.  (Well actually there isn’t a meal I don’t like, but if had to pick a least fav it would be lunch.) I love breakfast too, so brunch in my mind is really just an excuse to eat breakfast a little bit later in the day!  We were invited to friends for brunch today for Father’s Day and because I’ve inherited the inability to ‘bring nothing’ I thought scones would be a nice brunchy thing to bring.  I did make a regular batch of jam & cream topped regular scones, but here is the gluten free version – not really like a jam & cream topped scone at all, but yummy none-the-less.

I had made similar scones a few years ago but couldn’t find the recipe, so after finding a few different ones online,  I based mine on this Apple Scones recipe from Paleo Foodie.

  • 2 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1&1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2-4 tbsp honey or maple syrup
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1 -2 apples grated (1 large or 2 small)1. Preheat the oven to 170C.
    2. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
    3. Stir until combined into a batter.
    4. Put small cookie sized mounds of the batter on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
    5. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool, serve and enjoy!
