Paleo Orange Cranberry Scones

Wow! I didn't realize how long it had been since I last posted! Sorry about that! It's not that I haven't been cooking, I guess it's just that I've been busy!! Well, rest assured this recipe is well worth the wait! I've made them twice now and each time they have to be rationed to the official taste tester. Last night as they rest on the baking sheet I noticed 3 were missing. I mentioned it to the taste tester who admitted he didn't think I knew how many were on the baking sheet and he tried to "mess" them up so it looked like there weren't 3 missing! So, watch out!

Thanks for the recipe:

2 Cups Almond Flour
1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
2 Tbsp Raw Organic Honey
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Sea Salt
1 Egg
Zest of 1 Orange or to your taste liking

-Preheat oven to 375 Degrees F
-In a large mixing bowl, combine your almond flour, sea salt, baking soda, cranberries, and shredded coconut
-In a smaller mixing bowl, mix the egg and the agave nectar until well blended
-Add your wet ingredients to the dry and mix well
-Knead the dough with your hands if necessary to ensure an even distrobution of ingredients
-Add in the orange zest and continue to knead to mix well
-Form dough into two circles approximately 1/2 inch thick to look like mini pizzas, they should be about 6 inches across (Or you can make fun designs, get creative and share)
-Cut each circle like a pizza into 6 or 8 slices depending on the size you want the scones
-Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet
-Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through
