Merry Christmas everyone! This is my new recipe which is a wonderful snack option for family holiday events. Using only healthy ingredients such as almond flour, coconut oil, and 70% dark chocolate, these delicious, simple, gluten-free and dairy-free chocolate chip scones may just be a big hit in the people you are entertaining!
Makes about 10-12 cookies
2 ½ cup almond flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
½ cup organic maple syrup
2 t vanilla
1 large egg, beaten
½ c organic virgin coconut oil, in solid state
3/4 cup to 1 cup dark chocolate chips (70% organic chips by Equal Exchange that can be ordered at: http://shop.equalexchange.coop/index.php/catalog/product/view/id/1140/s/organic-chocolate-chips-bittersweet/?gclid=CKbhx_a099ACFQeUfgodyFEDRg)
Preheat oven to 350º.
In a large mixing bowl add the first three ingredients and mix well.
In a second smaller mixing bowl, combine the next four ingredients. Mix well to incorporate coconut oil mashing with a fork if needed to evenly distribute.
Pour the wet mixture into the large mixing bowl to combine wet and dry ingredients. Add chocolate chips and stir well to incorporate.
Use a tablespoon, scoop rounded dough portions and form with fingers into somewhat rounded shapes.
Place everything onto baking sheet (scones won’t spread) and bake for 20 minutes until just turning golden brown on edges and tender on the inside. Cool. Enjoy!
