Scones!!!

Coconut Date

I’ve been working on this recipe for a while. Had a hard time deciding what it wanted to be, and finally decided upon scone. Want cookies? Add an egg or substitute, a touch more sweetener, and the rest is the same. It mixes up quick, tastes yummy, and you can eat it while its WARM! A rarity, I find, with cassava flour.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Cream together:

  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 3 T Agave

In a separate bowl, combine well to coat & separate the dates throughly:

  • 2/3 cup cassava flour (or blend with arrowroot/cornstarch)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3 chopped dates
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut

Combine bowls, mixing thoroughly.

Couple of different ways to form – 3T per scone (Pampered Chef has a scoop just for this), or roll it out, adding more flour blend as needed, then cut into 6 pieces (have fun w your shapes). Bake for 20ish min. Cool. Enjoy before the cats knock them off the counter. True story.


Kiss of Fire (jalapeno, cranberry & dark choc)

I’ve been working on a different recipe, but one day I realized I just LOVED the texture of the coconut date scone… I wonder how it’d work here… FABULOUSLY.

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a separate bowl, combine well to coat & separate the dates throughly:

  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 up to 2 jalapeno/habanero/serrano/other flavorful pepper

  • 1/3-1/2 c chopped cranberry (recommend they start frozen to make chopping easier, less messy)

Combine bowls, mixing thoroughly.
