Coconut Flour Scones with Orange Glaze

Coconut Flour Scones with Orange Glaze

Scones are a favorite treat for breakfast or an afternoon coffee or tea break. Unlike muffins, scones aren’t supposed to be moist and cakey. They should be slightly dry and crumbly like a shortbread cookie. Perfect for dunking! These Coconut Flour Scones have the benefit of extra fiber with wheat flour, oats and high-fiber, nutritious coconut flour. The orange glaze adds an extra layer of flavor—and fancy. Serve them at your next brunch or make them as gift for a tea-loving friend. Don’t have an orange handy? The glaze would be equally as delicious with any citrus juice. Try lime, lemon or even grapefruit.

Ingredients

Scones:

Orange Glaze:

  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 teaspoons orange juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. To guarantee your scones don’t stick, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut the chilled coconut oil into the dry ingredients with a pastry cutter or a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Tip: measure out the 6 tablespoons of coconut oil first and place it in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes. The oil should be the same consistency as chilled butter.

  3. Whisk the eggs and coconut milk together in a separate bowl. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the mixture, and pour the rest into the dry ingredients. Mix by hand with a large spoon, do not use an electric mixer or food processor.
  4. Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Shape the dough into an 8-inch circle. Brush with reserved egg mixture. Transfer to baking sheet.
  5. Bake approximately 20 minutes or until the dough is lightly golden. Remove and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  6. Mix the ingredients for the glaze. Begin with 2 tablespoon of juice, and add more if needed to make a consistency similar to honey.
  7. Cut the wedge into 8 wedges. Drizzle glaze over each scone.
