Raspberry and Rosemary Scones

Still need a Christmas breakfast idea? How about adding these scones to the table? They have Rosemary for the green, Raspberry preserves for the red and their taste just screams home for the holidays. I originally made these scones last Valentines day for my roommates and I, but I have been wanting to try them gluten, dairy, and refined sugar free so I thought they would work just as well for christmas as they did for Valentines Day. The original recipe was from Giada de Laurentiis but I changed it to eliminate the bad stuff (well bad for me at least) and used raspberry where she used strawberry because I prefer it and its what we had on hand.
To be honest... I will probably make them again for Valentines Day (when I will be in London...even more of a reason to make scones).

Raspberry and Rosemary Scones
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour (same thing as tapioca starch)
1 teaspoon xanthum gum
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup evaporated cane juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 teaspoon celtic sea salt
6 tablespoons vegan butter (I use Earth Balance) cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1/2 cup coconut milk
about 1/3 cup raspberry jam

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

First combine the three flours, xanthum gum, baking powder cane juice, salt, and rosemary and whisk together.

Next add in the vegan butter and cut in until it looks like a coarse meal.

Now add in the coconut milk slowly and stir in.

Spoon dough onto a greased cookie sheet about an inch or two apart. Indent the center of each spoonful of dough and place about a teaspoon of jam into indentation.

Bake the scones for 20-25 minutes, then remove from the oven and let cool completely.


  1. Erica, I've never had the raspberry/rosemary combo, but I'm so curious to try it! I LOVE scones, and they go so well with my morning coffee.

    And, please forgive my ignorance, but WHY are you going to London?!? :D

  2. I am obsessed with rosemary so I would probably put it in anything, hehe.

    And I am studying abroad! I am spending the semester studying International Health and Development at University College London. So excited!!

    Thanks for all of the sweet comments :) I just LOVE your blog.
