Chocolate Scones

I didn't want to give up on my chocolate and banana dessert idea. So I tried this recipe out. 


  • INGREDIENTS
  • 11/2 cups flour 
  • *1/2 cup  (75 grams) coconut flour
  • *1 cup (115 grams) oat flour (old-fashioned oats can be put in the food processor and blended into a fine powder)
  • 1/4 cup  (20 grams) unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 4 ounces Banana (about 1 large banana)
  • 3 ounces light, unsweetened Coconut Milk
  • Stevia Drops about 4-5 droppers full (adjust sweetness to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 ounces vegan semi sweet chocolate chips or chopped Chocolate pieces
  • Powdered Sugar or Maple Sugar
*use these flours for allergy friendly recipe


METHOD
Pre heat oven to 350˚ with the rack in the middle. In a medium bowl whisk together flours, baking soda, cocoa powder, salt and add one ounce of the chocolate.    




Mix coconut milk, banana, vanilla, stevia in a blender or food processor.





Add wet to the dry ingredients and form a dough. Press together with your fingers until you can knead into dough ball. Taste dough, add more sweetener if needed.





Press dough into a 1/2 inch thick flattened disk. Cut into 8 equal pieces. Top with remaining one ounce of chocolate. 



Bake for about 10-12 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet and transfer to rack. Dust with powdered sugar or maple sugar before serving if desired.
