1 1/2 cup spelt flour or all-purpose gluten-free flour
1/4 cup PRANA organic fair trade cane sugar
1 pinch sea salt
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 cup PRANA organic cranberries, sweetened with apple juice
1/3 cup PRANA organic chocolate chunks, 70% cacao
1/2 cup PRANA organic coconut oil
1/3 cup almond milk
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Make sure the coconut oil is solid and cold. Cut into small cubes, making sure it doesn't melt.
Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and cranberries together in a bowl.
Add the coconut oil cubes and mix together using your hands. Add the chocolate.
Cover a flat surface with flour and quickly knead together with your hands until the dough's consistency is uniform.
Flatten into a circle about 1" thick and even it out with a rolling pin.
Using a round pastry cutter (about 2.5" in diameter), cut out approximately 8 scones.
Gather the remaining bits of dough, and shape, roll and cut as many times as needed to use up all of the dough.
Delicately place the scones on the prepared baking sheet.
Brush with a bit of almond milk.
Place in preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool on a rack.
