Gluten-Free Apricot Scones


It’s apricot season and my kids have been downing fresh apricots like crazy because we only get them for a short period of time. It inspired me to make some apricot scones for breakfast and they were a hit with the whole family! They are gluten-free, grain-free and sugar-free but you would never know. These are definitely a buttery decadent weekend treat! 


I use dried apricots however, instead of fresh. I find them easier to bake with when using almond flour since they don’t change the moisture ratio of my batter. 


And what’s a scone without a glaze? This dairy and sugar-free coconut butter almond glaze is the perfect compliment to the apricot flavor!


Ingredients:

2 eggs

2 tbsp almond or cashew milk

1/2 cup honey

1 tsp almond extract

4 tbsp cold unsalted butter

2.5 cups almond flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup unsweetened sugar-free dried apricots 


For the glaze:

2/3 cup coconut butter

1/4 cup honey

4 tbsp almond nut

1 tsp almond extract 


Directions:

  1. In a food processor, pulse the almond flour, baking soda, salt and cold butter until the butter is broken up into pea-sized pieces.

  2. In a separate mixing bowl, combine all the other ingredients. Fold in the almond flour butter mixture into the wet ingredients until well combined.

  3. Place the mixing bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes or the fridge for 25 minutes to allow the dough to become more dense.

  4. While dough is chilling, preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Place a separate piece of parchment paper on the counter as your working surface. Sprinkle a handful of almond flour on your work surface.

  5. Once dough is chilled, gather it into a ball and place it on your work surface. Use your hands to roll into a round shape no more than 8 inches across. The dough will be sticky so use the almond flour to help shape and cut.



6. Use a pastry cutter to cut 8 even triangles and transfer them into the baking tray at least an inch apart. 



7. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown on top. 

8. While scones are baking, melt all the ingredients for the glaze on low heat on the stove, whisking frequently. Drizzle the glaze on the scones and enjoy!
