How To Make Cinnamon Orange Scones

 



once you use the baking powder, these scones turn out fantastic. They’re a touch dry and crumbly (like most traditional scones I see in the US), but they go great with coffee and some icing on top. They -are- quite sweet, so if you’re not the type to want excess sweetness in the morning, you can leave out the stevia from the recipe and that will put you at a good point to start from. If you do that, you can always add extra icing if you want the extra sweetness.



If you do some special twist on the icing, stick jam and cream inside, or just eat it warm out of the oven – let me know what you think! I love hearing people’s twists, getting new ideas, and of course – hearing whether you liked them or not!

Yields 8 Low Carb Cinnamon Orange Scones

THE PREPARATION

Scones

½ cup coconut flour (divided into 7 Tbsp. and 1 Tbsp.)

1/3 cup heavy whipping cream

¼ cup erythritol

¼ cup unsalted butter, chilled & cubed

2 large eggs

2 tablespoons coconut oil

2 tablespoons Ruled.me maple syrup (recipe here)

1 tablespoon golden flaxseed

1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon (plus ½ tsp for topping)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon xanthan gum

¼ teaspoon stevia

¼ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon orange zest

Icing

¼ cup coconut butter

1 tablespoon orange juice

20 drops liquid Stevia

THE EXECUTION

1. Preheat your oven to 400F. Combine 7 Tbsp. Coconut Flour, 1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder, 1/4 tsp. Salt, 1 Tbsp. Golden Flaxseed, 2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil, and the zest of 1 orange in a bowl.

2. Mix together the ingredients, and then add 1/4 Cup of chilled butter that’s been cubed.

3. Using a fork, mash the butter into the mixture to create a crumbly dough, set aside for later.

4. In another mixing bowl, mix together 2 eggs, 1/4 Cup NOW Erythritol, and 1/4 tsp. Liquid Stevia using a hand mixer.

5. Once the eggs are light in color, add 1/3 Cup Heavy Cream, 2 Tbsp. Maple Syrup, and 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract and mix again well until the cream thickens.

6. Add 1 Tbsp. Coconut Flour and 1/4 tsp. Xanthan Gum to the mix and mix everything again thoroughly. You should end up with a thick and creamy substance.

7. Pour all of the cream mixture, except for 1-2 Tbsp., into the dough and mix it together. Set the leftover cream to the side for later.

8. Add 1 1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon to the dough and mix again until combined.

9. Knead the dough with your hands until a solid ball is formed.

10. Mold the dough into a flat circle that is relatively thick (about 1 – 1 1/2″ thick).

11. Cut the dough into 8 slices like you would a pizza.

12. Place the pieces of dough into a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Using a brush, coat the tops of the scones with the leftover cream mixture and sprinkle on about 1/2 tsp. cinnamon more.

13. Bake the scones for 15-17 minutes.

14. Let the scones cool for 20-30 minutes before icing them.
