Blackberry Scones

I love to have my kids in the kitchen cooking with me. First it started because I thought all the measuring was some of their basic math skills and over the years it has turn into more education for their health. Having conversations with them about the differences in ingredients and how they can help our body or maybe why we do not cook with certain ingredients anymore. Having them involved has definitely helped in our lifestyle change. In our home we eat clean my kids are about 75% clean, I do not make them a separate meal they eat what I prepare. I love that I am helping set that foundation for them to have a long healthy life!

This last weekend it was my 8year old daughter Lauren in the kitchen with me. We made a clean apple crisp, banana bars (which need some changes before I can share that recipe) and a easier scone recipe.

For some reason I think scones are fun but some of the recipes I have found are so complex, and if you have ever notice the recipes I come up with or use are very simple ingredients.

Blackberry Cinnamon Scones
3 cups Almond Flour
1 t. Baking Soda
dash of salt
2 Eggs
3 tablespoons Honey or Pure Maple Syrup
3 t Cinnamon
3/4 Cup Fresh Blackberries
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In bowl mix almond flour, baking soda and Cinnamon.  Then mix in the rest of the ingredients. Fold in the fresh fruit!
Scoop onto a baking sheet, you can shape into a triangle or leave in a circle. Just flatten to be about 1 inch thick.  Bake 15-18 minute or until  you see a golden brown.
A few other fun combinations to this scone recipe:
Chopped Strawberries, few chopped walnuts and dark chocolate chips.
Fresh Blueberries, lemon zest and 2t. fresh lemon juice.
Dried Cranberries, Orange Zest and 2 t. fresh orange juice.
Raspberries, Cinnamon and crushed almonds.


I hope you enjoy as much as we did!
