Shredded Coconut. Buy here.

Tropical Traditions 100% natural Shredded Coconut, Coconut Flakes, and Coconut Chips are made from organic dried coconuts in the Philippines that are grown with no fertilizers or pesticides. This premium dried coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened. Unlike most dried coconut on the market, our dried coconut products are not treated with sulfites to keep them white.

They are a great addition to recipes and baking, or just for snacks! Note: The Shredded Coconut is a very small cut, suitable for baking, such as making macaroons. The Coconut Flakes are a larger shredded coconut cut, perfect for garnishing or toppings, such as the top of a coconut cream pie. The Coconut Chips are a much larger cut that can be used as a snack food. You can mix them with nuts and dried fruit, for example.

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.
