Hello & Happy Tuesday!!
When it comes to scones, it’s somewhat of an acquired taste. That’s not to say that they are not enjoyable, but if you’re not familiar with them, you won’t typically hear someone talking about a craving for a warm scone! lol
My experience with scones wasn’t until I was actually 19 working at a breakfast/lunch concept and I was instantly taken by them. It’s not a muffin, it’s not a cookie, aesthetically they look dry, but ironically they are just so good!
Truth be told, I’ve never made a traditional scone with white flour (stay tuned), so I don’t have a baseline in terms of texture to compare to an almond flour variety. In terms of almond flour, I have a love hate relationship.
I love that it’s not white flour and it’s simply ground almonds, I even have an affinity for the flavor profile (prefer almond extract to vanilla), but sometimes, almond flour can be tricky and not provide the best results with recipes. Scones can be one of them!
Almond flour has a high absorbency, (not as much as coconut flour), but you can easily end up with a big ol mess if there is too much moisture in an almond flour scone. My first Raspberry Lemon Scones were featured in a magazine, but I haven’t explored another recipe..
Until these vegan Peach Almond Scones!
What I love about this recipe, is everything! It’s quick, easy, has a handful of ingredients, was tested twice, tweaked it to perfection, has minimal sugar, packs peaches, the perf texture, and is non vegan approved!!
