Apple Cinnamon Scones

Good Post Christmas Morning! I hope you all had a wonderful, blessed Christmas yesterday! I know we sure did! Now comes the fun part, putting together mountains of toys, finding a home for the old ones and picking up paper… lots and lots of paper! I’m going to need a good breakfast to do all of that! That’s why I’m giving you this recipe today! These simple, yet delicious scones are perfect! Apples and cinnamon just go together and when you add them to a scone it’s magical! They really don’t take too long to make and you could even start the dough the night before and bake the morning of serving. Makes 8 scones.

1 cup white rice flour
¼ cup coconut flour
¼ cup almond flour
½ cup tapioca starch
2 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
¼ cup coconut oil, softened
½ cup almond milk
1 egg
1 cup apple, finely chopped
1 Tbsp cinnamon
¼ cup coconut sugar
1 Tbsp butter, melted (I used dairy free)
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp almond milk (more or less for desired consistency)

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add in oil, milk, vanilla and egg. Blend over low speed until dough ball forms. Slowly add in apple pieces until well combined. 
  • On a floured surface (or a counter with a layer of plastic wrap), form dough into a circle about 1” thick. Cut the circle into 8 pieces. 
  • Place scones onto a greased baking sheet and bake at 325°F for about 20-25 minutes or until scones are lightly browned and cooked through. Let cool for about 10 minutes. 
  • While scones are baking, combine glaze ingredients into a small bowl. Whisk together until smooth, adding more milk if a runnier glaze is desired. Drizzle glaze over cooled scones and serve.
