Spring is prime strawberry season here in the Bay Area and big, local strawberries are EVERYWHERE! There is even a man on the corner of our street selling big crates of strawberries. (I wish the ones he sold were organic, but unfortunately, they are not.)
Once we get strawberries, the pressure is on to use these strawberries up as fast as we can because these only stay fresh for a couple of days.
I tend to freeze the extras because they are also very good in our morning smoothies. (To freeze strawberries is simple, I wash the berries and then set them out on a towel to dry. When they have dried off, I take off the green top and toss them into a large freezer bag.)
I don't know about your mornings, but ours are crazy hectic.
We have kids running around, trying to get ready for school as quickly as they can because they slept in longer than they should have. Every morning is the same. I wake them up for school at 7:00 am, only to see them lay in bed for another 20 minutes. I open their blinds so the sunlight hits their sleepy faces at just the right angle, pull their covers off, and talk loudly. Nothing seems to work.
Because of our morning rush, the kids often run out the door with only a few bites of breakfast. I am always trying to create healthy "grab and go" breakfast for my kids so I know they start their day outright.
A scone is a delicious little quick bread that originated in England. Scones were enjoyed at afternoon tea. Our family loves to eat scones for breakfast.
Scones can come in sweet or savory. You can mix up any combination and just toss them into the batter. What are your favorite things to put in scones?
To make gluten free scones, you should have all of the ingredients in your pantry. Gluten free flour, baking powder and soda, butter or coconut oil, fillings...you can make your scones plain, or add fruit, nuts, or anything you like.
- Almond flour
- Gluten free flour blend
- Coconut oil, melted
- Almond milk
- Powdered sugar
- baking powder, baking soda, and salt
Add your dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to blend.
Whisk together the wet ingredients until well blended.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dark ingredients and mix well.
Add the scone batter to a scone baking pan. If you don't have a scone baking pan, you can make your scones easily by following the directions in this gluten free pecan scones recipe.
Bake at 350F degrees for 20-25 minutes until done.
How do you know when the scones are done baking?
I recommend the toothpick test to test to see if your scones are done. Insert a toothpick into a scone. If the toothpick comes back dry, the scones are finished baking. If there is batter or crumbs on the toothpick, your scones need to bake a bit longer.
