Ingredients

Scones

Sugar-Free Orange Glaze

  • 3 Tbs powdered monkfruit see notes
  • 2-3 tsp freshly squeezed orange juice or water + 1 drop orange oil

Instructions

To make the scones:

  • Preheat oven to 350. Line a medium baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small dish, stir together flax and water and set aside to thicken.
  • Meanwhile, combine dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
  • Whisk together the wet ingredients in another bowl. Pour wet over dry and mix well. Allow flour to absorb for a few minutes. If too sticky, add about 1 tsp of almond flour at a time until a soft dough forms. If too dry/crumbly, add a splash of water or oj.
  • Place ball of dough on parchment and flatten into a disc about 8" wide and 1" thick. Slice into 8 triangles and separate about 1-2" apart.
  • Bake for about 15 minutes until golden and crisp on the outside. Cool for 5 minutes before adding glaze.

To make the glaze:

  • Make powdered monkfruit if needed (see notes)
  • Add monkfruit to a small bowl and add 1 tsp freshly squeezed orange juice at time until a pourable consistency is reached.
  • Drizzle glaze over the scones. Sprinkle with additional orange zest. ENJOY :)

To make homemade powdered "sugar": Blending granulated sweetener (monkfruit) in a small blender for 10 seconds (I use a smoothie cup with my Ninja blender) *Note, you will need to blend at least 1/3 cup at a time for it to blend properly. Save the leftovers for another recipe like this delicious frosting! :)
To store: Scones may be kept at room temp in an airtight container for about 3 days. I store them in a glass container lined with paper towels to absorb excess moisture.
Leftovers are best served reheated in a dry skillet for about 5 minutes on medium until they crisp back up.
May be refrigerated for about 1 week, or frozen for 1 month (without glaze) tightly wrapped in an airtight container.
