Before this recipe I didn’t even know it was possible to have paleo scones that tasted this good! Holy moly guys. They are something really special, and I’m so so excited to share the goodness of these paleo maple pecan scones with you!
Back a few years ago before I gave up gluten and made such a major lifestyle change, a maple pecan scone bakery shop score was life to me. They represent all the best things about a coffee date treat –> Tender, a little flaky, slightly crisp on the edges and brimming with nutty pecan maple flavor. YAAAS. Tell me you feel the same.
But then I gave up gluten (and waved farewell to my maple pecan loving scone days), because:
Health > Treats.
But what if I told you that you could have BOTH?! Yep.I think I’ve cracked the code. Health AND treats.
Specifically these deeee-licious paleo maple pecan scones. Because after 3 (maybe 4?) batches they are so ready for your grain free coffee dates + holiday gatherings.
Oh man! Feeling out of practice with this whole blog post writing thing. Since starting a ketosis protocol a week and a couple days ago, that has pretty much been my life. Planning, cooking, yoga, and a general turning inwards. Pretty awesome actually. I’ve also been making and shooting a fair amount of recipes, but the blog post writing (also known as the piece of this project that always takes up the largest chunk of time and energy), has not made the to do list cut. BUUUT! Fluffy grain free pancakes with fresh figs and whipped cream are just too damn good to keep from you guys any longer.
So here we go. It may be a brief post (with maybe a few too many pictures – bc who doesn’t love a generous stack of pancakes piled high with all the good things) but it’s going to be a good one.
YOU GUYS! THESE DONUTS! Crumbly in all the right ways, slightly springy in texture, studded with fresh raspberries, dipped in a luscious vanilla coconut glaze and sprinkled with tart dried raspberries because donuts like to look pretty, too!
These maaay actually qualify as my new best friend. Is that too pathetic of a statement? How about: good enough to make a NEW best friend. There we go. That sounds a little more social-normal. I don’t know about you guys but I’ve neverrr chosen donuts over friends… *blink blink*
But anyhooo… (that wasn’t awkward at all now was it.. )
I’m super excited to be bringing you this scrumptious recipe in collaboration with Windy City Organics and Dastony, a company that makes raw and stone ground nut and seed butters with 100% organic ingredients. They make everything from out-of-this-world-good coconut butter, to pine nut butter, brazil nut butter, pumpkin seed butter and good old standby’s like almond butter.
And this company is so rad that they’ve offered to do a giveaway for a jar of your very own coconut butter (my personal fave!). It’s happening RIGHT NOW over on my Instagram page until September 12th. ✨Head on over there now to snag an entry! ✨
