Tea Time Scones are a quintessential centerpiece for any Mother’s Day tea.
Are you tired of avoiding all of your favorite foods because they are made with harmful ingredients? Well, I was too and that is what propelled me to create this scones recipe.
I love to be able to recreate our favorite foods using clean and healthy ingredients. This scones recipe was one I have been working to perfect, and it gives me great joy to be able to share it with you.
This is such a versatile recipe that can be paired with any combination of your choice. Personally, I love warm scones with fresh berries and a little bit of coconut cream.
1 ¼ Cup ground almonds (almond meal) *
1 ¼ Cup gluten free all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 Cup unsweetened almond milk or light coconut milk
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
Add the milk a little bit at a time until dough has a play dough type consistency.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Use an ice cream scooper to scoop out 8-10 even scones.
Bake at 350 F for 18-20 minutes until browned.
Cool on a wire rack.
They taste great warm or toasted! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family does.
Tea Time Food Ideas
I grew up with tea time as a ritual in my grandparents’ home as well as my own parents. One of our all time favorite tea time snacks is Green Chutney Sandwiches. Find a clean gluten free bread, like Bread Seriously (clean except for psyllium husk) or you can make the Medical Medium Bread, which my kids love. Make the green chutney recipe from my Chutneys and Sauces Recipe Book and load that chutney on the sandwich bread.
Another classic tea time idea is gluten free muffins or cookies. One of our favorites is this Banana Walnut Muffins. Share some of your favorite tea time ideas below! I would love to hear.
To your health & happiness,
