Ingredients
  • Scones
  • 1¼ cups white rice flour
  • 2 cups oat flour, certified gluten-free
  • 2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 Tbsp cocoa
  • ½ cup enjoy life mini chips
  • 5 Tbsp unsweetened apple sauce
  • 4 Tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (we use Silk brand)
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • Chocolate Drizzle
  • ¼ cup enjoy life mini chips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
Instructions
Scones
  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Add flours, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa, enjoy life chips and salt to large mixing bowl. Stir until well combined. In a seperate, small mixing bowl, add coconut milk, vanilla, apple sauce and maple syrup. Stir to mix and then add to large bowl of dry ingredients. Stir until just combined, being careful to not overmix the batter. The batter will be quite sticky and wet in appearance.
  3. Using damp hands so that batter does not stick to them, split batter into 6 evenly sized portions and transfer to a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Shape into desired scone shape (we opted for traditional triangles but circles or even square would work just as well).
  4. Bake for 16 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on wire rack.
Chocolate Drizzle
  1. Add enjoy life mini chips and coconut oil to small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly until melted.
  2. Remove from heat and use a spoon to drizzle over the scones.
Notes
The Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips do include brown sugar so, if you're trying to avoid all refined sugars, I would suggest omitting them from your scones.

These scones are best if enjoyed the same day - they can dry out a bit on the second day since there is no oil in the recipe.
