Lavender Glaze:

Make Your Own Almond Flour:

*You can grind your own almond flour by placing whole almonds in a blender/food processor and blending until you get a fine meal.

Make Your Own Coconut Milk:

**For the freshest coconut milk make homemade coconut milk. (See video at this link.)

In a small bowl, combine flax seed and warm water. Let rest about 5 minutes then stir gently.

In large mixing bowl, combine almond flour, arrowroot starch, coconut flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Cut in shortening and honey until you get pea-sized crumbles. Slowly add in flax seed mixture, lemon zest/juice and coconut milk until dough forms. If dough is too dry, add a little more milk – 1 teaspoon at a time. Fold in blueberries.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pat dough into a large circle on baking sheet about 1 inch thick – cut into triangles. Bake at 375° F for about 20-25 minutes or until cooked through and slightly brown. Remove from oven and let cool about 15 minutes to allow the scones to finish setting.

Meanwhile, combine glaze ingredients in a small blender or mixing bowl with whisk. Blend or whisk until smooth. Drizzle over cooled scones and serve.

Servings: 24
Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Dry:

  • 3/4 cup honey graham crackers, crushed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ginger spice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon spice
  • 3/8 teaspoon pink salt

Moist:

Topping:

Crush graham crackers by hand or by placing them in a plastic bag and using a wooden spoon to beat them into a crumble. You can use a food processor but the consistency/texture will be more fine so you will only need 1/2 cup that way.

Mix the crushed graham crackers with the remaining dry ingredients and combine well.

Scoop out and reserve 1 tablespoon of the dry mixture to use as the final topping and set aside remaining dry mixture.

Mix together all moist ingredients, blending/stirring until smooth and all coconut cream has been well incorporated.

Add the remaining dry mixture to the moist mixture and stir until well incorporated. Pour into an 8×6 dish and smooth with a rubber spatula until evenly distributed. Set aside.

For the topping, place the chocolate and coconut cream concentrate in a double boiler on medium low heat and stir continuously until smooth. Then remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract until fully incorporated.

Pour the melted chocolate over the pumpkin mixture in the pan and smooth until evenly distributed over the top. Next, evenly sprinkle the reserved graham cracker over top, cover and place in the refrigerator for 1 – 1 1/2 hours or until the chocolate topping is firm.
