Cinnamon Twist Muesli Scones
Serves 6 | Vegan Friendly, Gluten Free Scones
GLUTEN FREE SCONE INGREDIENTS
- 1 cup walnuts (or safe substitute)
- 2 cups ZEGO muesli (Cinnamon Twist)
- 2/3 cup cassava flour (or substitute)
- 1/3 cup brown sugar (or white sugar+1t molasses)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup almond butter (or safe substitute)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1 egg (or safe substitute)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Using small pulses, grind walnuts in a food processor until ground into a flour (a medium grind is fine — make sure to not pulse walnuts until they become a butter!).
- Pour walnut flour into a large bowl & combine with dry ingredients.
- Put wet ingredients in the food processor and pulse until combined in one smooth mixture.
- Combine wet and dry mixtures in the large bowl. Mix using a wooden spoon & your hands if necessary.
- Place scone mixture onto a piece of parchment paper and flatten. Cut into 2″-3″ strips and then cut each strip using alternating diagonals to create triangles.
- Transfer triangles onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake until golden brown (10-15 min).
- Let scones cool before removing them from the sheet.
- If you would like scones to be more dry like a biscotti, put them back in the oven at 275°F for approximately 10 minutes.
