Cranberry Coconut Scones

Cranberry Coconut Spelt Scones

These fabulous scones are perfect for breakfast or with tea anytime of the day.

Makes 8 Scones

1 tablespoon Nutiva Organic Milled Chia Seeds

* 2/3 cup water

* 2/3 cup Nutiva Organic Manna

1 teaspoon organic vanilla extract

2 cups organic spelt flour

½ cup Nutiva Organic Coconut Sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

½ teaspoon sea salt

½ cup Nutiva shortening or extra virgin coconut oil

½ cup organic dried cranberries

 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Put the milled chia seeds, water, manna and vanilla in a blender and puree until smooth.

In a large mixing bowl, put the spelt flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, and sea salt. Add the shortening, and with your clean hands, mix the shortening into the flour mixture.

Add the cranberries and the blended chia seed and coconut manna mixture. Stir briefly until it becomes a dough.

On a lightly floured pastry board, roll out the dough about 1 ½ inch thick into a round pie-like shape. Slice into 8 wedges.

Bake on a cookie sheet for 20 minutes. Let it cool before eating.

*You can use 1- 13 oz can organic coconut milk instead of the  water and manna. Either way will be delicious!
