- 1 ¼ cup white spelt flour
- 1 cup purple corn flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
- ¾ teaspoons salt
- 1 egg
- 6 tablespoons Organic Coconut Oil with Butter Flavor
- ⅓ cup Organic Coconut Sugar
- ¾ cup vegan buttermilk ( add 1 tablespoon lemon juice to the coconut milk let set 5-10 minutes)
- 1 big handful of Organic Shelled Hempseed
- 1 small handful frozen wild blueberries
- 1 small handful wild foraged borage flowers
- Approx. ⅛ cup coarsely ground turbinado sugar to garnish
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- In a big bowl add spelt and purple corn flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
- Add just the Buttery Coconut Oil and dry mix above into to a food processor and pulse until it has a “wet sand” texture.
- Transfer the mix back to the big bowl.
- In a smaller bowl whisk together the coconut sugar, coconut-buttermilk, and egg.
- In the big bowl fold the wet mix with the dry.
- Fold in the frozen blueberries (keep them frozen until the minute you add them).
- Split the dough into two.
- Transfer the two dough balls onto separate pieces of plastic big enough to cover each, then wrap and flatten each one into approx. 1 ½ inch high discs.
- Take the plastic off of them and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- Put one disc on each sheet, sprinkle evenly with turbinado sugar, then make 4 cuts into each disc. (Each disc will yield 8 scones.).
- With a pie server or spatula, carefully move the raw scones away from each other so each one has enough room to rise and expand.
- Add the cookie sheets to the oven and bake for exactly 15 minutes.
- Break one open, watch the steam dance out then enjoy with a thick slab of buttery spread & Buttery Coconut Oil Coffee.
