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.
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)
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.
