• Raisin Walnut Scones

    Scone with jam

    I love scones. I used to buy a chocolate chip scone on my way to work in midtown Manhattan – I can’t remember where, but it was a little coffee shop that everyone rushed in and out of on their way to work on any given weekday.

    Here is a recipe using almond flour, honey, creme fraiche, and baking soda. The scones are a bit smaller than most scones you will find in a bakery (about 3 inches in diameter). This is on purpose – I make them small so they bake evenly because the almond flour takes a while to bake with the richness of the creme fraiche. If you use a lighter (less fat) yogurt, such as goat yogurt or yogurt made with low-fat milk, you can probably make the scones a bit bigger without having to over bake them to fully bake the inside of the scone.

    Note This recipe is lactose-free if you use home-made yogurt that has been cultured for 24 hours.

      Hi, Erica! I’d like to try this recipe, but I want to use coconut flour. What other changes of quantity should I do?

      Hello and love your site and your Cooking for the SCD book. Have you ever tried making lemon curd with honey rather than sugar. I am craving scones and now have two of your recipes for scones but will miss the lemon curd. 🙂 Thanks!

      Yes, but you may need to add water to the cream to get the right consistency. Check on the container...

      Can we use the coconut cream that comes in a container instead of refrigerating coconut milk and taking the cream...
