Date Sweetened Almond Butter Scones (paleo + vegan)

these are perfect for people who like things a little less sweet, but still want a nice treat! also def top them with a bit (or a lot:)) more almond butter + a pinch of sea salt for good measure





THE RECIPE:

yields: 8 scones

prep time: 10 min

cook time: 15 min

total time (including cooling): 35 min

ingredients:

6 medjool dates (pitted, soaked in warm water for 5 min, and drained)

1/4 cup melted coconut oil

1 flax egg (1 tbsp ground flaxseed + 3 tbsp water, mix, and let sit for 5-10 min)

1/4 cup almond butter

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup almond flour

1/4 cup coconut flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

instructions:

*preheat oven to 350 F and line or grease a baking sheet

*blend soaked and drained dates until smooth (or as smooth as possible they should turn into a paste, if your blender/food processor can’t do it, thoroughly mash them with a fork) then add them into a large bowl

*add the coconut oil, flax egg, almond butter, and vanilla into the bowl (with the dates) and mix until smooth

*add in the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt

*with your hands, clump the dough together and mold it into a flattened (about 2 inch thick) circle and place it onto the baking sheet. using a sharp knife, cut the disc into 4 sections and then diagonally until you have 6 scone triangles and separate from each other on the sheet.

*bake in the oven for 14-15 mins, let cool for 10, and enjoy (preferably with some almond butter + salt sprinkled on top)
