GRAIN FREE CURRANT SCONES grain free, gluten free, refined sugar free scones that are sweetened delicately with honey and sprinkled with organic currants.

I love a good scone. Scones were my favourite baked good when I was growing up – of course, they were the gluten-full variety. Currant scones, to be precise, were my absolute favourite. I would beg my mom to make them whenever any glimpse of an occasion arose, and eventually I learned the recipe myself and I became the go-to currant scone baker. 

Since I can no longer have wheat flour on the SCD diet, I’ve been on a mission to recreate the scone of my childhood, currants and all. And spoiler alert: it’s a success.

These scones really did remind me of the ones I would eat warm out the oven growing up. Almond flour and coconut flour form the base, with dripped 24-hour SCD yogurt adding to the texture to create that scone-like feel. Scones are in a lane of their own, they are truly not a muffin, not a cake, not a cookie…they are dry, and somewhere in between. I’ve always loved the dry-ness of scones. That being said, don’t let these scones sit out on the counter for too long as they’ll get moist, which is the opposite of what you want in your scone. I recommend storing them in an air-tight glass container in the fridge, and taking one out when you want, warming it up in the toaster oven to get that little bit of crispness to the outside and then putting some good ol fashioned butter (!!) on it. Now I’ve talked myself into it. BRB.
