Wake and Bake Hemp Seed scones with orange zest

Standard

I must admit I am a wake and baker, though not of the pot smoking kind. I think scones are the best thing to wake up to in the morning, especially with a cuppa. My boyfriend is always thinking up new and crazy combinations to put together and last night he suggested hemp seeds in my coconut milk scones. WHY NOT? Hemp seeds are incredible, they have an equal balance of Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids for humans. They are a complete protein having all essential amino acids, have tons of magnesium, zinc, iron, and potassium…aren’t convinced yet? Just try these scones!

2 1/2 c All Purpose flour

1 Tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/3 c sugar

1/4 cup hemp seed

1 generous cup of canned coconut milk (full fat and unsweetened)

1 tsp vanilla extract

zest of one orange

1. Preheat oven to gas mark 425 Fahrenheit. Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl and then add the rest of the dry ingredients including the help seed. Add in the rest of the ingredients pouring slowly until coconut milk is combined.

2. On a floured workspace take the dough out of the bowl and flatten into a 9 inch round. Cut the round into 8-12 pieces depending on the size you like. Place on a baking sheet and lightly coat with more coconut milk and a dash of raw cane sugar. Place in the oven for 15-20 min or until outside feels hard and the edges begin to brown!

3. Get Sconed!
