Gluten-Free Blueberry Scones Recipe with Whole Grains
Hudson Valley Fresh from the Garden
Prepare a 9-inch round cake pan by lining it with a circle of parchment paper. Set aside.
1 cup brown rice flour, or sorghum flour
1/2 cup millet flour
1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup quinoa flakes
1/4 cup rice bran
1/4 cup sugar, or substitute to taste
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup organic raw coconut oil
2 large organic free-range eggs, beaten
Up to 1/3 cup almond milk, as needed
2 teaspoons bourbon vanilla extract
3/4 cup fresh blueberries, washed, patted dry
In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients by whisking till blended (brown rice flour through nutmeg).
Add the coconut oil in pieces and whisk or mix to distribute. The flour should get a bit crumbly and sandy.
Add in the eggs and beat. The dough will be thick and stiff.
Add the almond milk a little at a time and beat until you see the dough relax and become smooth and pliable. It should be slightly sticky, but not wet or thin. My dough took the full 1/3 cup liquid (and weather was humid). Use only the amount of almond milk you need to get the dough to stick together. You may need less (or more) than I did.
Add in 1/2 cup of the fresh blueberries and mix briefly.
Scoop the scone dough into the lined cake pan and using oiled or wet hands pat the dough into an even round loaf. Press the remaining blueberries into the top.
So good, serves around eight or four folks depending on your sweet tooth.
Set aside and allow to rest for about fifteen minutes.
