    Excited by the ingredients, totally disappointed about the food wastage due to failed recipe. How on earth does that amount of dry ingredients bind together with 1 egg & 3 tablespoons of honey. Impossible! & despite adding fluid they just didn’t stick. Sadly inedible, straight to bin for our attempt

    Something is missing from this recipe. I had to add water again and again to get to the part where I can make the roll. Failed recipe.

    I just made them and followed the direction as given (except I used dried lemon zest). They are very good…..time for tea!

    What would you think about substituting ginger eo for the fresh ginger? Would 1 drop be the equivalent?

    You seem to always use almond flour in your recipes versus an all purpose gluten free flour. Any reasoning behind that? Curious!!

    I tried a variation on the recipe, I did one cup almond meal, 1 cup rice flour blend with xanthan gum, 3 tbs. coconut flour, chia seeds, lemon juice, extra egg, 3 tbs liquid egg whites, no honey but added stevia. Turned out pretty tasty for a very low sugar scone. I always liked something with my coffee. I also added tsp of baking soda and a couple dashes of Himalayan salt. I find when doing gf recipes, mixing the flour blends is ideal.

    Just tried the scones! I had to add more moisture to be able to do anything with them. I added Greek Yogurt, Ghee and a little lemon juice. This is the first time I’ve baked with gluten free flour so maybe when I get use to it it will be better. I haven’t gotten my almond flour yet so used just a all purpose gluten free. Would that have made the difference in moisture? Otherwise they aren’t bad.

    My diet is so limited that this recipe seems like something I would enjoy. I think I would also add some flax meal to it even though the egg adds moisture. Thanks for posting!
