Keeping up with the Ratio Rally and my fellow Gluten-Free ladies, this month we’re sharing with you a delicious spread of scones.
All gluten-free and delicious.
But, instead of the usual scone-like shape I decided to get a bit creative.
And I opted for a muffin tin.
Yes, a scone in a muffin shape.
Dense n’ hearty and perfect.
These babies will be gone before you know it. One bite and it’s all over.
Slice ’em in half with a bit o’ jam, nut butter or honey and you’re all set.
Pure heaven. On earth.
In just a mini muffin-like scone.
Because life’s all about the little things and enjoying the unexpected.
So, when someone asks you if you’ve ever had a muffin scone…
You can say, “Surely, I have….”
And I know you’ll be making these again. They’re contagious and adorable.
I simply can’t resist.
With Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday, go ahead and whip up a batch. Momma will be proud and all smiles with each bite.
- 1 1/4 cup brown rice flour
- 3 Tbsp. tapioca flour
- 3 Tbsp. sugar
- 3 tsp. xantham gum
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- 1/2 cup Earth Balance Vegan Butter Sticks
- 1/3 cup currants
- 1/3 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Mega Chunks
- 1/3 cup Enjoy Life Gluten-Free Rice Cereal
- 1 Tbsp. ground flax seeds
- 1 tsp. chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
- 3 eggs, beat one for egg wash
- 1/2 cup honey Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup sweet potato puree
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Cut in Earth Balance Vegan Butter Sticks, currants, chocolate chips, rice cereal, flax seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon and nutmeg; mix well.
In a small bowl, combine 2 eggs, Greek yogurt, and sweet potato puree; whisk to combine.
Create a well in the center of dry ingredients; add sweet potato puree, egg and Greek yogurt mixture. Gently mix to combine.
Spray a muffin tin with non-stick baking spray. Fill each muffin tin 3/4 way full. Brush with egg wash.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven; set aside to cool.
Serve with preserves, a touch of nut butter or a drizzle of honey. Enjoy!
My Ratio: 2 parts Flour,1 part Fat, 2 parts Liquid, 2 parts Egg
