Almond Flour Scones

Almond flour scones are perfect for a quick breakfast or snack. They’re made with almond flour, blueberries, and chocolate chips. They’re ready in 30 minutes!

Today’s post comes from Jaime of Zest & Zeal. This is the second time I’ve been able to share with you a recipe from this fantastic blog!

Jaime first shared this popular recipe for Paleo Turkey Roll-Ups with Avocado Dressing (a great kid-friendly lunch idea). Today she is sharing with you a blueberry and chocolate chip almond flour scone recipe.

I am not much of a fan of baked goods or desserts. I would much rather have something salty or savory for breakfast, as a snack, or for an after-dinner treat. 

For a while, I was baking gluten-free muffins to pack for my son’s morning snack at school and for the occasional breakfast option on a busy morning. 

I decided we needed some variety and wanted to try something different that would also be easy to pack.

In college, I worked as a baker in a natural foods grocery store, and every morning at 5:00 am I would have to make two batches of scones – both regular scones and a vegan variety.

However, since going gluten-free I hadn’t experimented with a gluten-free scone and I thought it was time—I needed to get out of my muffin rut. 

I like baked goods that you can personalize and make your own based on your preferences by adding your favorite fruits, nuts, and/or spices. 

I decided to use one of my favorite frozen fruits, the wild blueberry, and my husband’s favorite baked good addition, Enjoy Life chocolate chips.

Almond Flour Scones Ingredients

You only need a few common ingredients to make this yummy recipe.

How to Make Almond Flour Scones

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, mix together dry ingredients, including mini chocolate chips. Stir until chocolate chips are evenly distributed.

In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, raw honey, and melted butter.

Combine the dry and wet ingredients.

Fold the frozen wild blueberries into the dough until evenly distributed and form the dough into a ball.

Place the dough mixture on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Form into a circle, similar to a pizza, that is ~1/2-inch in thickness.

Cut the dough into 6-8 triangular slices.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

What kind of blueberries?

When choosing a frozen blueberry, I prefer the wild blueberry.  Wild blueberries are not only bursting with flavor but they also pack a powerful punch when it comes to nutrition.

These berries have a good balance between sweet and tart, and an intense blueberry flavor. Wild blueberries are uncultivated lowbush berries that grow in the fields and barriers in Maine, eastern Canada, and Quebec. 

They also have quite a history as they have been around for 10,000 years. If you have never tried them, you can typically find them in the frozen section of your local grocery store. 

I hope you enjoy this comforting and simple recipe.
