Almond Flour Cranberry Orange Scones
Being on a restricted diet is really hard, but I do have a few tricks up my sleeve. I am not eating any grain right now, so when I want something that is bread like, I have turned to coconut or almond flour. Almond flour really makes a great bread product. In fact my husband has a hard time telling the difference. So I thought that I would share some of the recipes that I come up with in case you want to give them a try. If you want to know where to get some of the ingredients I use check out my resource page.
3 c. blanched almond flour
1/4 t. sea salt
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 c coconut oil or melted butter
1/4 c honey
3 large eggs
1/2 c dried cranberries
1/4 c freshly squeezed orange juice
zest of one orange
Preheat the oven to 350
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl combine almond flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, orange zest.
In a separate bowl, combing eggs, honey, oil, orange juice
combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix well, add cranberries and mix well.
Scoop scant 1/4 c, 2 inches apart on baking sheet. Bake 10 - 15 min. until golden brown.
