Coconut Almond Apricot Scones



I love a good scone with my morning cup of coffee.  Cook these scones with Coconut Oil and then spread Coconut Oil on them while you eat! Yum!

      Hi Elaine! In this recipe we recommend using almond flour. Swapping out almond flour with other flours is tricky since it’s not always a 1:1 replacement and also requires using extra liquid. Thanks!

    I made half a recipe of these. I didn’t have apricots or coconut so just put in 1/3 cups of almonds that I had. The dough was so dry that there was no way I was going to be able to shape scones so I added a cup of almond milk. I was able to shape them, barely, and they fell in to a heap of crumbs when they were done cooking and were very dry! ? What did I do wrong?

      Hi, Kim! Unfortunately, the only way this recipe was tried, tested and true was with the appropriate amount of apricots and coconut. We recommend you try it this way. Hope that helps!
