Paleo Chocolate Raspberry Scones (AIP, Valentine’s Day)

  • Yield: 6 scones 1x


  • 1 1/4 cup tigernut flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca starch
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder (sub carob for AIP)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup fresh raspberries
  • 2 tbsp dairy free soy free chocolate chips (sub this for AIP )
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp melted dairy free/soy free chocolate (optional for topping.. sub carob mixed with melted coconut oil for AIP)
  • FOR THE GELATIN EGG (sub 1 regular egg)
  • 1 tbsp gelatin (great lakes or vital proteins)
  • 1/4 cup water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper that’s lightly greased
  2. Sift the tigernut flour, tapioca starch and cocoa/carob powder together and set aside
  3. Add in the coconut oil, maple syrup and stir
  4. Stir in the baking soda, chocolate chips and fresh raspberries
  5. For the gelatin egg (sub 1 regular egg if tolerated) add the water to a small sauce pot and slowly pour over the 1 tbsp gelatin. You don’t want any clumps, so lightly mix if needed. Allow the mixture to rest and bloom over 2-3 minutes. Place the pot on the stove and turn in on low heat. Slowly melt the the gelatin (this will take just a few minutes) and remove from heat.
  6. Once removed from the stove, vigorously whisk the gelatin egg until it becomes frothy. If it’s too watery, the scones will not work. Add the gelatin egg to the mixture immediately and mix to combine.
  7. Once the dough in thoroughly combined, place it onto a cutting board and form it into a large circle, keeping it about an inch in height.
  8. Use a pizza roller or a knife to slice the dough into 6 triangular scones
  9. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes
  10. Remove from the oven and cool. Add the optional melted chocolate drizzle and serve.
