Low-Sugar Chocolate Chip Cake-Like Scones: Week Of Reviews

September 8, 2011

Are you sick of review week yet? Nah, you love ’em. I know it. And we’ve got plenty more to go.

Today is one that I’ve been procrastinating on for some time now. Not with writing the review but with making the actual recipe! Why I waited so long, I’ll never know…

Way back when, err, in May, Christin of Purple Bird Blog wrote a wonderful guest post for my blog. She included an awesome photo of her and her cute little dogs and a fun and easy scone-like recipe.

Christin's Chocolaty Goodness Scones- My Inspiration!

Silly me for waiting this long to try out her recipe. Now that I have I’m in love, love, love!

It’s an easy recipe, requires only a few ingredients, and can totally be made into a Paleo-friendly recipe (which this one pretty much is). It’s gluten free, dairy free, and makes one round glass pie pan full of cake-like scones, which will disappear without a trace.

These are definitely going to become a repeat offender in my house because they were so dang great! They disappeared quickly and were incredibly addictive. I think it was the addition of almond extract. That stuff is delicious in baked goods.

What recipe have you been dying to make that just hasn’t happened yet? I know you have one. Share it! Or better yet, make it this week!

Is there any way to get the nutritional information on this recipe?

These look soooo good! This may be a silly question but does coconut flour taste coconut-y? I’d like to try it, but I don’t like the taste of coconut (I know, it’s terrible!). I’m sure I could sub in another flour though.
