      I am so excited to try these! My 21 year old son loves chocolate chip scones but I am never partake in them when I make them for him because of the ingredients! These are ones I can make for all of us! I plan to use Cinnamon Chips for Son #2 who doesn’t love chocolate! (imagine?!!!)

    9. Sylvia Stewart says:

      I was so excited about the choc. chip scone recipe that I completely forgot to say!! My very favorite recipe that I make frequently is the Orange Cranberry Muffins! They are filling, delicious and keep well in my ‘fridge! Though I do share them, my husband is sweet to leave them for me since I can’t have grains! 🙂

    10. Jill says:

      My favorite is definitely the banana bread. I started SCD almost a year ago. I would have never made it through the first few months without your banana bread! Thank you!

    16. Monique Martin says:

    22. Shari Rozansky says:

      Although I’ve tested and had many of your recipes, a favorite of my family’s is the Chocolate Chip Cookies! These are a staple in my home and they have been requested by many:)

      • Erica says:

        Thanks, Shari! (wondering which chocolate chip cookie, since there are a few) There’s a soft chocolate chip cookie in this new book!

    23. Jen says:

      We love the brownies using coconut flour recipe. They are a great treat for the family on weekends.

    24. venus says:

      I also have many faves, but if i had to chose one today it would be the cinnamon bun muffins…i love that they have that sticky swirl…yummy!

    25. Roxana says:

      Coconut flour pancakes because not only does it use coconut flour but it is also a dairy free recipe.

    26. Lisa says:

      We love your vanilla muffins! They are yum and so easy ot make! I put chocolate chips in a batch and my son was sneaking extras to school to give to his friends.

    27. Ali F says:

      I’ve only just recently discovered your site, but I have tried out your coconut-flour banana bread and I love it!

    28. Doug says:

      I would have to say the Fudge brownies. I make them all the time and eat them way too fast!

    29. Loretta says:

      The only pancake/waffle recipe we use is your almond flour one! It’s never failed me!

    30. Kelly Rowell says:

      I love both of your banana bread recipes. This one looks good too. Pinning it for later.

    31. Jill says:

      I love your pecan sandie shortbread cookie recipe! I need to give more of your coconut flour recipes a try. These scones look delish!

    32. Brenda Galloway says:

      Cinnamon Bun Muffins are a staple in our house! We can’t live without them – especially my husband!

    33. Jessica says:

      My favorite recipe on your website is the Cinnamon Bun Muffins. But, I love so many other recipes too. I especially love the turmeric smoothie!

    34. VictoriaN says:

      I am a fan of your banana bread made with coconut flour. Thanks for the great giveaway. I would love to win!

    35. Susan says:

      My favourite coconut flour recipe is the Cinnamon Bun Muffins!

    36. Tania says:

      Cinnamon Bun Muffins are a favorite at home. The banana bread comes second.

    37. LOVE the coconut flour banana bread!!! Thank you for doing this fun giveaway!

    38. Denise says:

      Oh my, how to choose my favorite… I’ve got 3 I keep coming back to over and over… 1) the banana bread; 2) the fluffy chocolate cupcakes; and 3) the fudge brownies. My family says, YUM! I’ve earmarked this scone recipe, and am so excited to try it, and then to try substitutions to the chocolate chips. Oh, the possibilities!

    39. Bridget says:

      I love the chicken tikka masala with saffron caulirice. Its one of my all time favorites. Indian food! Yum!

    40. Stephanie W. says:

      I love the coconut flour donuts! It’s nice to have a yummy treat with coffee on the weekends.

      • Erica says:

        Thanks, Stephanie! There are no less than 3 donut recipes in the book, one of which is the original coconut flour donut with toasted coconut on top.

    41. Amy says:

      I love/d your refrigerator cake recipe. Sadly, I cannot tolerate almonds anymore. So, this would be a fantastic win!

    42. Erika says:

      The vanilla cupcakes w/coconut flour are A-MAZ-ING. I take them everywhere and everyone always raves. Always.

    43. Heather Beville says:

      I love making baked chicken tenders with a mix of almond and coconut flour as the “breading”. I love this especially because my daughter enjoys it so much. She’s so picky and it’s hard to get her to eat anything healthy, so this is definitely great for both of us!

      • Erica says:

        Thanks, Heather. So good to hear. I do a bit of mixing almond flour and coconut flour for one breaded chicken recipe in this book.

    44. Your most recent brownie recipe is to die for! Love coconut flour 🙂

    45. liz says:

      The scones are wonderful, and thank you for giving me the tools and courage to learn how to use coconut flour. I have been cooking with nut flours for 10 years, and am so pleased to expand my possibilities for gluten free. My attempts to use coconut flour in the past have been discouraging. I have made the chocolate chip scones and added dried fruits (apple juice infused) and that is nice.

    46. Cristy says:

      My favourite recipe is for the cream filled cakes and cupcakes. When our youngest son got sick, and we had to change our families diet, we came across your website. These healthy “twinkies” became a staple in my sons lunch and made SCD that much easier to transition to. They also taste so much better than any of the commercially made cakes that never seem to go bad in the grocery store!

    47. cristine bergen says:

      I myself am not a baker but being on a low carb diet is a struggle. I have started to find ways to make it a lifestyle change. My very first recipe ever attempted was your cinabun cupcakes and it came out amazing. Brought it to work and everyone loved it!!!

    48. Christina says:

      I’m a newbie with coconut flour so I don’t have any tried and true favorites yet, but I love your gluten free cranberry scone recipe. I’m anxious to try some coconut flour recipes.

    49. Nanda Garber says:

      Chocolate chip cookies!

      • Erica says:

        wow, good to hear! I wasn’t sure if many knew about them (there are a few on the site and a great one in the new book!) Thanks, Nanda!

    50. Emily says:

      You have so many great recipes to choose from, but our favorites are your coconut flour brownies and your coconut flour chocolate chip muffins. YUM! My kids all love them. 😀

    51. Sheila H. says:

      We make your banana bread and your cinnamon bun muffins several times a month These scones could be on tap for Father’s Day brunch.

    52. Theresatron says:

      I (and my husband) really enjoy the coconut flower popovers. One of the wheat flour things I missed most was good yorkshire puddings or toad in the hole that popover recipe changed everything.

    53. Jennifer says:

      Ahhh I am so excited you’re offering a giveaway — I have been wanting this book for months! I fell in love with your site years ago and honestly every recipe I have tried has turned out well, so your site has been one I frequently trust.

      So sorry these use almond flour, but my very first recipe to try was your cinnamon cookie pie crust and I loved it! Absolute favorite recipe is your Cranberry Upside Down Cake. I have made it for so many people and they love it every time.

      Congratulations on the book launch – I hope more and more people come to rely on your fantastic recipes. 🙂

    54. Haley says:

      The banana bread 🙂

    55. Rachel says:

      Coconut Flour Waffles

    56. Katy says:

      Love the cinnamon muffins!

    57. Lisa P says:

      Cinnamon Bun Muffins – I love cinnamon!!

    58. Katrina Van Dillen says:

      Would love the book! It’s too hard to pick a favorite as I have tried many recipes and have loved them all. The latest I tried was the raw chocolate cheesecake ( no coconut flour needed), but was so delicious. I do really love the pumpkin bread recipe with coconut flour and the banana bread as well.

    59. Kayla-098 says:

      I love your banana bread recipe!! Can’t wait to try some recipes from your new book!! Thank you for all the fab recipes

    60. Donna Smith says:

      I love the tortillas!

    61. Tara Pantera says:

      Cinnamon bun muffins!! Family favorite! Only tried the almond flour version, but you’ve inspired me to make the coconut flour version this weekend!

    62. Kaori says:

      I love your very vanilla cupcakes recipe using coconut flour! Yum!!!

    63. Kelli says:

      Oh, this is easy! I love your Chocolate Chip Muffins using coconut flour. I made a double batch yesterday actually. LOVE them!

    64. Dandi D says:

      My favorite recipe is the Orange Cranberry Muffins, because I love those pops of flavor!

      Hi I love the Chocolate covered Macaroons , thanks so much for sharing your great recipes with us!

    68. Stephanie KL says:

      We really enjoy the Cinnamon Bun Muffins using the coconut flour. I also think we’ll be trying the Chocolate Chip Scones soon.

    69. Corinne says:

      My family loves your Banana Bread and No-Corn Cornbread, thanks for the deliciousness!

    70. Véronique says:

      I haven’t made any recipes yet but I have many bookmarked to try out soon!! Judging by the comments above, I think I should try the banana bread first as it seems to be a hit. Can’t wait to try it!
      Would love to have your book and try everything 🙂

    71. Nanda says:

      so, i just made these scones. a couple things: 1) i think you might want to add to flatten the scones before baking, instead of just saying to shape them. mine seemed underdone in the middle.
      2) is coconut flour just sort of like that, though? it seemed just as described on the outside, at the exact same temperature oven for the exact same amount of time, and yet the middle seems sort of dough-ish. but at the same time, it’s almost a little bit dry in the mouth. but maybe that’s just how the coconut flour is.


      • Erica says:

        I make these very small, no more than 2 tablespoons of batter per scone to avoid the scones from baking too long on the outside and not enough on the inside. The longer you bake coconut flour items, the drier they get, so baking it longer won’t solve your issues – it sounds like you need to make smaller scones. You can flatten them, and it might affect the center baking issue, but I suspect you are just making them a bit bigger than I do. Hope that helps.

    72. Karen says:

      I love your recipes and I refer people to it a lot. My favorites are the banana bread (almond and coconut flour) and raw chocolate cheesecake……among others. Oh, and the almond flour pancakes….

    73. Becca F says:

      The almond flour yellow cake

    74. Lauren says:

      We’ve been making tons of dinners from your recipes, with my favorite being Spinach Tart! My favorite coconut flour recipe of yours is Morning Glory Muffins.

    75. susie king says:

      Brownies {using coconut flour} are my favorite recipe. Thanks for the opportunity.

    76. Anne says:

      I enjoy many of the recipes (and can’t wait to try the chocolate chip scones)but if I have to pick a favorite, it would be the brownies. 🙂

    77. Juanita says:

      I really like the cinnamon roll muffins – they are AMAZING! And I couldn’t believe how real the banana bread was!

    78. Alex says:

      I haven’t gotten to try any (I’m disinclined to bake when it’s just me–too much temptation), but the coconut lime macaroons have been calling my name for a month or two now!

    79. Amanda says:

      I love your banana bread recipe! That’s how I found your site 🙂

    80. Anna says:

      The orange dreamsicle recipe brought me to your website (which I love!), but as a food lover with lots of newly diagnosed food allergies, I am excited about all you have that is allergy-friendly. Can’t wait to make these scones tomorrow AM!

    81. Nancy says:

      I love your pumpkin bread and eat it year round. Your breakfast cookies and lemon poppy seed muffins are not far behind 🙂

    82. Julie says:

      I really appreciate your website! I am following the SCD diet to help my digestion and love the variety of recipes you have here. I recently tried your Cinnamon Bun Muffins – made with coconut flour. They were so delicious! Thank you!

    83. Kristin says:

      My favorite coconut flour recipe (so far) is definitely the Cinnamon Bun Muffins!! Can’t wait to get your new book! 🙂

    84. Monika says:

      Very vanilla cupcakes! Making some now.

    85. Ash says:

      My favourite recipe on here are the Orange Cranberry Muffins {using almond & coconut flour}. I just love them. The combination of the 2 flours makes them absolutely perfect.

    86. Ceridwyn says:

      Comfy Belly Cinnamon Bun Muffins … yumbolicious!

    88. Erin says:

      I made these yesterday, but unfortunately they didn’t come out right at all 🙁 They were totally flat like cookies. I let the batter sit for about 20 minutes before baking them (I had something else in the oven that I let finish first) – do you think that would have affected them? I was so excited! Scones are my favorite.

      • Erica says:

        Was it warm (warm ambient air/environment) while they were sitting outside? I haven’t seen this – which ingredients did you use (coconut milk or?)? And, if coconut milk, did you use full-fat?

    89. Brittanee says:

      Hi there! Stumbled upon your website not too long ago and have been browsing your recipes (which all look YUMMY by the way!). For this particular recipe, the Chocolate Chip Scones, can I use something other than chocolate chips? Like blueberries or just chopped nuts? Chocolate isn’t necessarily SCD-friendly (at least for me it isn’t), and I wanted to substitute it with something that I could eat, and that would taste just as good! Hopefully, blueberries would work! 🙂

    90. Christie says:

      I’m not trying to win anything, as these scones were the first recipe of yours that I’ve tried. THEY. ARE. FABULOUS!!! You have a brand new fan!! I’ve been experimenting with coconut flour the last 2 years and this is probably the most success I’ve had – I’m really picky when it comes to texture. I can’t wait to get my hands on your book!!
      Thank you so much for what you do!

    91. Claire McGuire says:

      I’m new to cooking with coconut flour. These scones sound delicious. I will definitely be making these. Thank you.

    92. Wisconsin Baker says:

      Just making these scones…I replaced the baking soda with baking powder (grain free of course) and I’m getting a much nicer shape and lift in them. Coconut flour reacts better with baking powder as opposed to baking soda. Erica test them that way and see if you want to change the recipe.

    93. Patty says:

      I’m fairly new to baking with coconut flour. This is the third of your CF recipes I’ve tried. Although the texture isn’t what one would expect of a wheat flour scone, my hubby and I thought they were light and delicious. I used my 2 oz. disher to portion out the dough; yielding 12 scones. Still only took 25 min. in my oven. Using a calorie calculator, each scone comes in at 183 calories. Not bad at all, for such a generous size.
      Thank you, Erica, Your cookbook is going on my wishlist for sure!

    94. Patty Baker says:

      These came out so nice with the perfect ratio of liquid to flour. I prefer coconut flour to almond flour for baking because of nut allergy in my family. This will be my go to scone recipe. My husband thinks they could be cookies. I’m so happy to have found this! Thanks!
