Raspberry Coconut Scones

I think it's safe to say that raspberries are one of my favorite fruits. Definitely my favorite berry. I made these scones a few months ago when I could still get my little hands on mountains of those perfectly ripe end-of-summer raspberries. I'm sure frozen ones would work out here, or even some blueberries, hella yum! Just thaw those berries first.
I had come across this recipe for the scones at Hope for Healing's blog. This recipe marks my first baked good attempt with coconut flour! These scones are probably one of the tastiest baked goods that I've made. They are a tad bit crumbly, so use a plate for those free-falling crumbles. 
I found that storing them in the fridge is the best way to go, considering they do contain coconut oil, the fridge helps to keep that oil solid in the scones.
I also love the fact that there is no xanthan gum in them!

I made a few modifications to the original recipe: because I didn't have millet flour on hand, I subbed 1/3 cup sorghum flour and 1/3 cup brown rice flour for the millet flour. That's it! 

I'm not going to re-type the recipe here, so check it out at: Hope for Healing
