Vanilla Scones

Facebook can be dangerous because some of these people cook such yummy looking things. These vanilla scones got me. A Dash of Sanity shared their Starbucks copycat recipe. Of course, it contains flour so I had to adapt but that is all cooking is, right? Adapting the recipe to what you can eat or what you have on hand? So, adapt I did and they are tasty!

Here’s the original recipe over on the blog by A Dash of Sanity.

I made two adaptations.
1) I subbed in 1/3 c almond flour, 1/3 cup brown rice flour, 1/3 cup garbanzo bean flour (chickpea flour), and 1 T coconut flour. Make sure you sift these together as it really helps the overall texture of anything baked with these types of alternative flours.
2) I skipped the vanilla bean and doubled the vanilla extract.

That’s it. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. Have at it and enjoy! They make a great late breakfast treat or a snack.

A couple more snapshots of the making –

    Lori, those look amazing! And I’m so impressed with your flour subs. I understand that baking is a whole ‘nother world with that!

      Thanks. We’ve spent a few years figuring out how we like to sub flours for different things. It truly is a very different world! And yes, they truly are amazing. I’ve made them a few times and love them every time.
