Orange Dark Chocolate Chip Scones

 It really is Joy the Baker’s fault.  I have been baking scones every day since I read her post for Orange and Dark Chocolate Buttermilk Scones.  I knew I would have to make my own gluten free version.  So I did.  And it’s scone mania over here.  It’s gotten so bad that last weekend I made 5 batches of scones.  All gluten free of course.

Joy, I wish I was your gluten free neighbor.  And by the way, I do not have a dog, nor do I play loud 90’s music.  And I’m not shy, well, that’s not entirely true; I am shy in groups.  But not one-on-one, and I would definitely say, “hi,” if I was your neighbor.  And I’d most certainly bring you a batch of these gluten free Orange Chocolate Scones.  If I was your neighbor.

Orange Dark Chocolate Chip Scones
  1. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, baking soda, chips and zest
  2. In a smaller bowl, combine egg and agave
  3. Mix wet ingredients into dry
  4. Knead dough with hands if necessary to ensure proper distribution of ingredients
  5. Form dough into a circle that is about ½-inch in thick
  6. Cut dough like a pizza, into 8 slices, here's a great how-to shot from my friend Jen
  7. Using a metal baking spatula transfer to a parchment paper lined baking sheet
  8. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes
  9. Serve

I hope you all enjoy these healthy gluten free scones as much as my family and I have!

My friend Tia did a wonderful review of my The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook on her site, Glügle Gluten-Free.  She’s also giving away one copy of my book, as well as a 5 pound bag of blanched almond flour from Honeyville, so check it out!
