September 20, 2010

goji berry pecan scones gluten free and vegan

Ingredients:

 

Makes 6 medium/large scones

  • 2c rice flour
  • 1tbsp aluminum free baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp cloves powder
  • ¼ c goji berries
  • ¼ c pecan pieces/chips
  • 1/3 c canola oil
  • 1/3 c agave nectar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 c rice, soy or almond milk

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a bowl, combine and mix together the dry ingredients (except for goji berries and pecans). In a separate bowl, beat together wet ingredients. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until just combined. The texture will be crumbly (this is normal!). Stir in goji berries and pecan pieces. Take a handful of dough and knead it together, shaping into a scone, and place on the parchment-lined baking sheet. If you notice the dough becoming too crumbly to form a scone, just add a splash of milk to the dough and continue to knead. After scones are lined up on the baking sheet, bake on the center rack for 20 minutes. Remove the scones promptly from the oven and let cool on a cooling rack. Enjoy
