Ginger Lemon Sconeinies (vegan & gluten free)

25 Mar

These little morsels (a group effort by Paula and Alex), are so tasty I think they might have just become my go-to scone! We originally intended these to be cookies, but the texture is much more scone-like so we thought we would dub them as little scones — voila, sconeinies!!! I will also try them as more traditional size scones and see how they turn out. The ginger and lemon blend brilliantly, mixed with a slight coconut flavor… they are to die for. You’d never guess they were low fat vegan scones!  Enjoy!  —Alex

  ingredients:

  • 2 cups gluten free oat flour
  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour (if you prefer gluten free, you could just use all oat flour)
  • 1 cup minced crystallized ginger
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground ginger root (powder)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tsp honey (I prefer raw)
  • 1/4 cup coconut butter
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

process:

  1. Preheat oven to 325
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground ginger & crystallized ginger.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix all other ingredients
  4. Combine the two mixtures and blend until well incorporated (they will still look slightly dry, but you should be able to form the dough into a ball)
  5. Form the dough into 1″ balls with your hands, flatten the ball slightly, and place them on a baking sheet about 1″ apart.
  6. Bake them about 12 minutes, or until slightly browned. Check them often and be careful because oven temperatures vary.
  7. Let them cool, and enjoy!!

yields about 30, 1-2″ scones.
