Coconut Scones

I love coconut and I love scones, so this recipe is a match made in heaven for me. These scones were inspired by a big tub of granulated stevia I picked up at Aldi. I already use liquid stevia quite a bit, but hadn’t tried the granulated version. There was a recipe on the back of the tub for scones, so I adapted it to make the coconut version.

Ingredients:

250g self raising flour (you can experiment with flours here but I used gluten free white bread flour from Doves Farm)

60g coconut oil, melted

25g dessicated coconut

5g granulated stevia

150ml milk (I used almond, but coconut would work)

Method:

Preheat oven to 200°C

Sift flour into a bowl. Mix in coconut & stevia. Add melted coconut oil & rub in until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the milk a little at a time until the mixture forms a dough. Knead out & cut into circular scone shapes (I used a narrow glass as a scone cutter). Mixture makes around 12 small scones. I like to cut them quite small but thick, as the mixture doesn’t rise too much.

Place on a baking tray & bake for around 20/25 minutes until they start to brown. They won’t go very brown, so I wouldn’t leave them for more than 25 minutes.

They can be eaten straight out of the oven, and they freeze well.
