I have been on the biggest baking spree and cannot peel myself away from Pinterest! I have been really inspired by afternoon tea lately and couldn’t stop thinking about how good an earl grey tea scone would be. It brings me back to the days I had in London when I first started travelling. So I decided it was time I tried my hands at making a scone! And what perfect scone flavour than an Earl Grey one. I honestly think Earl Grey tea is perfect for a English Afternoon Tea inspired morning so that’s what I went with. It smells amazing, tastes great and if perfect for rainy days! This Earl Grey Tea Scone recipe is simple, healthy, filling and a perfect treat!
Earl Grey Tea Scones
1 1/2 cups oat flour
1 cup coconut flour
3 bags of earl grey tea
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp baking powder
1/3 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup (or other liquid sweetener)
cinnamon (to taste)
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Preheat oven to 400F.
Blend oats in a blender till it turns to an even powder. Next place dry ingredients in bowl, including your ripped open tea bags, and mix well. Heat up coconut oil until completely melted then whisk together all wet ingredients. Stir the wet ingredients into dry ingredients but don’t over mix! Lightly form dough into a ball and gently place dough onto a cookie sheet with parchment paper on the bottom (this is to avoid a mess!).
Squish dough until it’s about two inches thick or you can even roll it out and use a cookie cutter to make shapes! It’s a pretty flexible recipe. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until it’s completely cooked. Personally I like my treats a bit doughy so I leave it a bit undercooked. There’s no dairy in here so you’re not at risk of getting sick!
Options: You don’t have to use coconut flour if you don’t want! You can use all oat flour if you choose or even whole wheat! You’ll just have to adjust the liquid measurements as you don’t want your scones to crumbly. If you choose to not use coconut flour you may want to add a bit more sweetener as I don’t like my scones too sweet and the coconut flour does add sweetness.
This recipe wasn’t a “true scone” texture and was more of a loafish texture which I thought was fine! It’s boyfriend approved and is amazing drizzled with honey. Be warned this scone is soooo filling and I don’t know why! But that didn’t stop me from eating two in one sitting.
Let me know what you think!
