Eggless Almond Flour Scones(Grain & Sugar free)



Almond Flour is a blessing for people on a gluten free and grain free diet. Even though the texture of the baked goods can't be compared with the  one's made out of regular refined flour or wheat flour. I feel the taste is incomparable with a nutty flavor and taste. Best of all too good for your body with high protein and low carbohydrate. I made these scones  for a evening snack and we had a few right away as they do taste the best when taken fresh out of the oven.



Preparation Time - 5-10 Minutes

Cooking Time - 10-15 Minutes

Serves - Makes 8 Scones



Ingredients



Almond Flour - 1 Cup

Clarified Butter - 1 Tbsp(Ghee) (If you increase this quantity cut down the quantity of water)

Xylitol - 2 Tbsp or more to taste(You can use maple syrup but cut down on the water and add 1/2 Tsp of baking soda)

Powdered Chia - 1 1/2 Tbsp

Vanilla extract - 1/2 Tsp

Salt - 1/8 Tsp

Water



Chopped Pecans - 1 Tbsp

Raisins or Cranberries - 1 Tbsp(Cranberries taste much better than raisin . Chocolate chips, chopped dates, apricots, dried cherries options are unlimited)



Method



1) Combine Almond flour, Xylitol, salt, powdered chia,  well with your hands.



2) To this add pecans, raisins, melted clarified butter, vanilla extract and add water little by little kneading this into a stiff dough.



3) Preheat oven to 375 Degrees Fahrenheit and line a cookie tray with parchment paper.



4) Make a circle and flatten them with your hand slice them across and make 8 parts out of each circle using a pizza cutter and them arrange each of the scone with enough spacing between and bake for 10-15 Minutes till the top browns.



5) Cool them in a wire rack for few minutes 5 to 10 minutes and serve them warm with butter, fruit preserves or as it is.



Note - You can substitute Xylitol with maple syrup and if using maple syrup cut down the water and also add half tsp of baking soda.

Your scones look delicious. Thank you for letting me know about the content theft. Hopefully, I'll be able to take care of it without too much unpleasantness, but I've already set steps in motion to address it. I'm not sure I'll ever understand human nature. Thanks again. Blessings...Mary
