Lemon Coconut Scones

Deviled Eggs And Lemon Coconut Scones 029I have loads of scone recipes.  I started thinking how maybe they are not so good to eat all the time because of their fat content.  So I thought I’d preform a little experiment.  I have the solid coconut oil on hand and I wondered how it would preform, if I switched up the butter for it.  Well, to my surprise it worked out fantastically….for this recipe!

These scones were light and soft. They melted in your mouth.  I just couldn’t believe it.  Not being sweet, the icing added just the thing to round off the flavors.

I was very pleasantly surprised and would definitely make them again.

Deviled Eggs And Lemon Coconut Scones 012Into a large bowl add 2 cups of flour, 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 4 tablespoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon Kosher salt. Mix well by hand to combine.

Deviled Eggs And Lemon Coconut Scones 013Add 2/3 cups of coconut oil and blend with a pastry blender until it resembles course crumbs.

Deviled Eggs And Lemon Coconut Scones 016Next add 2 cups of unsweetened coconut flakes stirring again to combine.

Deviled Eggs And Lemon Coconut Scones 017For the next step add 1-1/2 – 2 cups of coconut milk from a can and 1/4 teaspoon coconut extract…

Deviled Eggs And Lemon Coconut Scones 019It will look like this.  Slowly by hand bring it together, not working it too much.

Deviled Eggs And Lemon Coconut Scones 020Onto a large pan lined with parchment paper and sprinkled with a bit of flour…Deviled Eggs And Lemon Coconut Scones 021Divide the dough into 2 and press gently until the disks are about 1 – 1-1/2 inch thick.

Deviled Eggs And Lemon Coconut Scones 022Cut the dough into triangles, like you would for pizza. Place into a 370 degree preheated oven for 15-20 minutes.  It could be less, it could be more.  It just depends on your oven.  Just keep and eye on the scones and when they are golden in color on the bottom  and they should be done.

Deviled Eggs And Lemon Coconut Scones 024Gently with a knife pull apart after about 5 minutes and let them cool.

Deviled Eggs And Lemon Coconut Scones 023Into a bowl add 1 cup of icing sugar, 2 tablespoons of milk, 2 tablespoons or more if you like of lemon juice and the grated lemon rind.  If you add more lemon juice cut back on the milk.  If the icing is too runny, just add more icing sugar until you have the consistency for icing the scones.

Deviled Eggs And Lemon Coconut Scones 025Once mixed without any lumps dip the top of the scone into the icing.
