If you are new to baking with einkorn flour, please read my article The Beginner’s Guide to Using Einkorn Flour. There are numerous benefits to using this flour. Many people who suffer from gluten intolerance find that they are able to digest einkorn, without the same negative side effects they would normally have from eating white or wheat flour. I almost exclusively use einkorn flour in all my baking and cooking. Not only is this flour easy to digest, it also has a light, rich flavor to it which goes well in this slightly-sweet  recipe. 

I’m not normally one to love sweet treats, but these scones are amazing! They are versatile in that you can add almost anything to them. I made a vanilla glaze for this recipe, but you can also add fruit, nuts or chocolate chips into them or as a topping.  I’m generally a savory kind of girl, so I like that they aren’t too sweet. These scones pair perfectly with a delicious coconut milk latte. Try out this recipe, you won’t be disappointed!

  4. First of all…freakin’ love your domain. I live on acreage! Dude seriously good choice with that. Your header as well…good job girl! Your blog is clean and classy, love love love. These scones look wonderful too. May have to bake them up for my bible study!

  5. Your logo is gorgeous! I have only recently read about this kind of flour because I had to write an article on wheat and gluten for work. It’s so interesting that there are flours like this (and even sometimes sourdough) that people with gluten intolerance can still handle. These look incredible!!
