How is it possible to ship fresh fruit, without mold or smells?  It’s not.  No, I didn’t find this out the hard way, it’s common sense, come on!  So, in hopes of one day sending out scone kits to the masses, I need to start testing with dried, “packagable” fruit.  My first attempt included Pineapples and Apples, I thought it was funny and could potentially taste good.

I still went the gluten-free route with almond flour and  coconut oil, but this time I used 1 container of coconut yogurt and 1 egg.  The result left the scones a little under moist, maybe higher yogurt content?

Still edible, those dried fruits gave the scones a tangy kick.  You know, that tang that has one eye squinting, your mouth salivating and your lips puckered.  Super cute face, I’m sure.  Maybe one should eat these in a room by themselves to not scare their friends.

Epic Fail

So, when I said that I’d post the recipe in the post earlier today, I meant, “I’l post my epic fail of what was supposed to be an awesome scone but really turned into burned crumbles of the idea of a scone.”  Oops.

I mean, REALLY?

Sans the complete flatness and burned edges these actually tasted quite good.  The boyfriend-roommate and I actually polished them all off.  I warned him, “do not share with anyone else!” I was too embarrassed to let anyone try/see them.  OMG.

This time around I tried almond flour; I have to admit that the kitchen was kind of warm so the mixture of that and coconut oil that wasn’t cold enough, are both contributing factors.  I mean it’s about presentation too!  I can’t make an ugly scones, ew.

These are definite “make-again” because the taste was chocolate and hazelnut, you really can’t go wrong – unless you burn them and turn them into pancakes. Not. Bitter. At. All.

Voila! (hand over face, peeking through middle and index finger, still can’t get over this)

I just had to share, it’s sometimes from our mistakes that we learn the best… here’s to learning!  I need  a glass of the pineapple wine

Enjoy these little gems!

I made these a few years ago, came across them this morning while scrolling through photos in order to stall my morning.  Mornings are ironically my most productive parts of the day (at home) and I only get an hour for it; so things like, walking to work, are postponed quite frequently.  As I sit here, I’m mentally telling myself to “motivate”, funny…it’s not working and I just thought of 10 more things to do.  Shooooot!
