I am feeling a bit emotional this Christmas Eve. I suppose Christmas recalls feelings from my childhood that are bittersweet. So, in true Alison fashion, I cooked and baked all day. Well, the last 2 days and I still have a few things to prepare tomorrow.
I love baked goods for breakfast. They are a treat and today’s scone was a Christmas treat. I started tossing ingredients in a bowl based on the flavor profile and consistency I wanted and I was delighted at the result. Tis the season for cranberries and oranges.
Cranberry Orange Scones
¾ cup of almond flour
½ cup of coconut flour
¼ cup of arrowroot starch
Pinch of salt
½ tsp of baking soda
½ cup of dried cranberries
1 tsp of orange zest
2 tbs of orange juice
¼ cup of melted coconut oil
2 tbs of honey
1 tsp of vanilla
1 tbs of almond slivers
In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine all wet ingredients.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well.
Fold in the dried cranberries.
Using your hands, bring the dough to a flat sided ball and cut into four pieces.
Prepare a baking sheet or cast-iron skillet with nonstick spray or parchment paper.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until a light golden brown.
Top with honey, jam or your favorite topping.
Serve and enjoy!
Merry Christmas from our home to yours.
