Description

Made with einkorn flour, oat flour, and rolled oats, these homemade grapefruit honey scones are hearty and satisfyingly nourishing. Perfect for breakfast served with softened butter!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 cup einkorn flour, plus more for dusting
  • 3/4 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • Zest of 1 grapefruit (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)
  • Juice of 1 grapefruit (about 1/2 cup)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, oats, coconut palm sugar, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, and salt.
  3. Add the cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Using a pastry cutter, two knives, or your fingers, rub or cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles small, coarse peas.
  4. In a separate small bowl, mix together the yogurt, honey, and grapefruit zest. Add the yogurt mixture to the dough, mixing together with a spoon or your hands until all of the dry ingredients are just moistened.
  5. Mix in the grapefruit juice, adding it a tablespoon at a time, until the mixture forms a scone-style dough – it should be able to hold its shape without being too wet or too dry. You may not need to use all of the juice.
  6. On a lightly floured work surface, form the dough into a large, flat disc with a rolling pin or by hand. Slice the disc into eight equal triangles. Transfer to the prepared sheet pan, leaving space in between each piece. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  7. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until golden brown around the edges. Remove the oven and cool on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool for a few more minutes. Serve warm.
