These Cinnamon Raisin Scones from Iris at The Daily Dietribe are pretty amazing. Coconut flour is the flour in this gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, and nut-free recipe. Yet, surprisingly, these scones are egg free, too, as well as vegan. The raisins, apple juice, and cinnamon supply all the sweetness needed; no sugar needed. Iris says “These scones are mild and slightly cakey with a strong coconut flavor. Top them with coconut oil and enjoy with your morning tea.” Of course, I’d have to add a drizzle of honey to mine … the scones, not the tea.
I made scones today for a tea party with my girlfriends. It was grand! First, I made Apple Cinnamon Scones from George at Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations, which more than met my expectations. Next I made one of my favorite scone recipes of all time—Orange Dark Chocolate Chip Scones from Elana’s Pantry. This recipe is super easy to make and the results are simply wonderful. I use honey as the sweetener and Ghirardelli Semi-Sweet Dark Chocolate Chips. For today’ s event I made these scones with orange zest (as called for), but I often make these scones without orange zest when I don’t have any oranges on hand. Both versions are worthy of your tea table for sure!
As I’ve stated before, sometimes the bloggers whose recipes I feature here do a far better job of describing their desserts than I possibly could. After all, they totally have the ”inside scoop.” Such is the case with these Paleo Apple Cinnamon Scones from George at Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations. George says that these scones “are kid tested, mother and father tested, and someone even commented with the opening line ‘Slap your mother, these are good.’ ” Oh, yeah!
