Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 Cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 Cup salted butter, melted
  • 1 Tablespoon unsweetened plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Teaspoon liquid stevia
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 Cup blueberries, preferably organic, quartered if large

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix together the coconut flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.  

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the eggs. Add the coconut milk, butter, Greek yogurt, vanilla extract, and liquid stevia.

In another bowl, whisk the egg white to a frothy consistency. (The egg white should be mostly foam and have hardly any liquid at the bottom of the bowl.) Set aside.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until it forms a thick, sticky, slightly wet dough.

Fold the blueberries into the batter until the berries are distributed more or less evenly throughout. Scoop the beaten egg white into the large bowl. Using a spatula, fold the egg gently into the dough. 

Scoop 2 heaping tablespoons per scone onto the baking sheet. Bake for 26 minutes, then rotating the baking sheet halfway through to ensure even cooking.

Sugar Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Sugar Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
