We recently received a request from one of our regular followers for a scone recipe, free of refined sugar. So off to the kitchen we went to create the “most-delicious-tasting-ever-pure-ingredient scone”. And since it’s raspberry season here in Minnesota, we thought it was the perfect fruit to use in our Raspberry Oat Scones. If you are a gluten-free fan, this is a must try! It got rave reviews from all of our taste testers!
RASPBERRY OAT SCONES
3 cups rolled oats, ground (save 1/2 cup ground flour for dusting)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
2 large eggs, beaten
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup raspberries, fresh
Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a food processor, bullet, or blender, pulse 3 cups oats into a fine flour. Reserve 1/2 cup flour for dusting. In a large bowl, stir together ground oat flour, whole rolled oats, coconut flour, baking soda and salt. Stir in butter, beaten eggs, honey, sour cream and lemon juice. Stir. Add raspberries. Dough will be sticky to touch.Turn the dough out onto a floured surface using the 1/2 cup reserved oat flour.
Shape the dough into a 1 inch thick round (approximately 10 inches across)
and cut into triangles.
With a spatula, transfer scones to baking sheet.
Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
Makes 8 to 10 servings

2/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup honey
