Ingredients: 
  • 2 cups whole spelt flour
  • ½ cup oat bran
  • ½ cup ground, toasted macadamia nuts
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • Pinch sea salt
  • ⅓ cup liquid coconut oil
  • ⅓ cup agave + ¼ cup for drizzle
  • ¼ cup brewed tea
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract or vanilla powder
  • ½ - ¾ cup chopped strawberries
Instructions: 
  1. Preheat oven to 350° and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl mix spelt flour, oat bran, nuts, baking powder and sea salt.
  3. Measure the oil, ⅓ cup agave, tea, and vanilla into a small bowl and mix to combine. Add liquids into the dry ingredients, and stir gently. Add the berries and stir to just combine.
  4. Scoop out ¼ cup batter into your hands, gently press flat, and then lay on to cookie sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each scone. Bake for 15 minutes, rotating pan halfway.
  5. Immediately after removing scones from the oven, drizzle with remaining ¼ cup agave. Let stand on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes, and then move to cooling racks.
  6. These stay fresh for a few days at room temperature, and they freeze very well. Enjoy!
