My BIG FAT Grain Free Life: Coconut Mango Scone

Monday, September 19, 2011

Coconut Mango Scone

Scones and a proper cup of tea make me feel like I'm in one of the BBC movies I'm addicted to.  A scone and some Jane Austin, Elizabeth Gaskell or Charles Dickens "would set me up forevah."  (Spoken by Mrs. Bennett in the REAL "Pride and Prejudice" with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle.)

I've been informed that many Europeans pronounce scone "scawn" (rhymes with lawn) but there are some of the upper class who pronounce it "scone" (as in phone) like Americans do.  Does this mean we can thereby deduce that Americans...are really classy?  Hmmm...

After trying an incredible recipe for Blueberry Scones from one of my favorite bloggers, Nourishing Flourishing, I had to try the recipe with some of my favorite combinations.  Here's one of them.  May you enjoy your scone...I mean scawn...I mean scone.

Coconut Mango Scones (grain free, gluten free, dairy free)
2 1/2 cups blanched almond flour (Honeyville Grain)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup diced ripe mango

Preheat oven to 350F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, whisk together the first four ingredients.  In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, coconut milk, apple cider vinegar and vanilla.  

Add wet ingredients to dry and stir to incorporate.  Fold in mango.

Drop about 1/4 cup of scone batter onto baking sheet, a couple of inches apart.  With moist hands, shape batter into triangle.

Bake for about 15 minutes.  These scones taste best eaten fresh.  Store leftovers (if you have any) in an airtight container.  Reheat in toaster oven.

NOTE:  My resident taste testers do not like coconut.  I absolutely loved the coconut mango version of this scone, but, just to be sure, I contacted my friend Marti - who is a coconut lover, master baker, and an honest friend.  (The kind who will tell you if you have spinach in your teeth...while laughing hysterically.)  She loved these scones and heartily recommended I share them with you.  Enjoy!
