Grainfree Almond Coconut Scones

I have been making whole wheat scones for my family the last couple of years. This was my first attempt at Paleo-fying them. Honestly, I think these are SO much better, but this is my humble opinion :)
Gluten-free, and Grain-free. Paleo approved.

Grainfree Almond Coconut Scones
Makes 24 medium to small scones

Ingredients: coconut flour, almond flour, coconut oil, butter, egg, kefir {or yogurt, coconut milk, almond milk}, honey, maple syrup, coconut shreds, slivered almonds, raisins, cacao nibs, vanilla extract, almond extract, baking soda, and salt

Mix together:
• 1 3/4 cup almond flour
• 1 cup coconut flour
• pinch of salt
• 1/4 tsp baking soda

Add and combine till crumbly:
• 6 Tbsp soft or melted butter
• 3 Tbsp coconut oil

Then add:
• 1/4 cup coconut shreds
• 1/2 cup raisins
• 1/4 cup slivered almonds
• a little under 1/4 cup cacao nibs {or chocolate chips}

Separably whisk together and then add to above:
• 1 egg
• 1/4 cup honey
• 1 Tbsp maple syrup
• 1/2 Tbsp almond extract
• 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
• 2 Tbsp kefir {or alternative}

Form into two dough balls. Take one and flatten into a circle {about 8 inches across} on a coconut floured surface.  Cut into eight wedges.  Separate wedges and place on an oiled {or silpats} baking sheet. Slightly pat and reform the wedges into triangles. Repeat with the other dough ball.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350 for 10 minutes 

{Let cool before moving from baking sheet or 
they will crumble apart}

Lastly, eat one or two or three {okay maybe not three, but they are smaller than most} tasty almondy scones :)
