Oatmeal apple scones

October 17, 2009

A wonderful breakfast for a cool morning. Make sure your oats are gluten-free (Bob’s Red Mill is one brand that makes gluten-free oats). Serve with butter and honey or some cream cheese.

  • 1 ½ C gluten-free oats
  • ½ C sorghum flour
  • ½ C tapioca flour
  • ½ C cornstarch
  • ¼ C ground flax seed (optional)
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 T baking powder
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 5 T salted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 C coconut milk
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 1 green apple, diced

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and grease two baking sheets. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and work the butter in with a fork. Beat the eggs, coconut milk and honey together and add it to the butter-flour mixture, mixing until everything is combined. Add the chopped green apple. The dough should be sticky but it  still hold its shape when dropped onto the baking sheet. Drop 6 large spoonfuls/ice cream scoops of the mixture onto each baking sheet. Bake for about 15  minutes, or until the tops of the scones are brown.
