Skip Starbuck’s Scone and Try this Healthier Coffee Pairing Instead!


  • 2 cups Blanched Almond Flour (not almond meal)
  • ¾ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tablespoon Orange Zest
  • 1 large Egg
  • 3 tablespoons Honey


In a large bowl, combine almond flour, baking soda, dark chocolate chips, and orange zest. In a smaller bowl, combine egg and honey. Thoroughly, mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Form dough into a circle that is about ½-inch thick. Cut dough like a pizza into 8 slices. Using a spatula, transfer slices to a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 – 15 minutes. Serve with a naturally sweetened cup of coffee or tea.
