ORANGE ROSEMARY AMARANTH SCONES

March 18, 2019 by Renee Tavoularis

ORANGE ROSEMARY AMARANTH SCONES

Amaranth is a naturally gluten-free, ancient grain that is high in both protein and fiber. These scones are lightly sweetened using coconut sugar and contain hints of orange and rosemary making them perfect to pair with a warm cup of tea.

MAKES 8 SCONES
30 MINUTES PLUS 1 HOUR CHILL TIME
VEGAN
GLUTEN-FREE

Ingredients

For the SCONES:

1 ½ teaspoons orange zest
1 teaspoon rosemary, stems removed and chopped
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups amaranth flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ cup coconut sugar
¼ teaspoon sea salt
⅓ cup coconut oil, hardened
⅔ cup canned, full-fat coconut milk

For the GLAZE:

¼ cup canned, full-fat coconut milk
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon orange zest
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the amaranth flour, baking powder, sugar, sea salt, orange zest and chopped rosemary.
  • Add the hardened coconut oil to the flour mixture and use two knives or a pastry cutter to cut the oil into the flour until there are tiny pieces throughout the mixture.
  • Pour in the orange juice, vanilla extract and coconut milk and combine gently with a spoon until a shaggy dough forms and the mixture lightly holds together. Gently shape dough into a ball.
  • Transfer the dough to the prepared baking tray and shape into a circle that is about ¼” thick. Use a sharp knife to cut into 8 wedges and slightly pull apart to allow space between each piece.
  • Place the tray in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Make the glaze by placing all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blending for 30 seconds. Remove and set aside.
  • Once the scones are cool, pour some of the glaze on top of each one.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container for 3 days.
