Warm honey scones with vanilla roasted stone fruit and coconut whipped cream. Grain, gluten and dairy free options also included!
As we head into the fall, I must admit I’m trying to get my final fill of all things summer. Pineapple, watermelon, peaches, berries, and avocados have all been on sale for the past several weeks and I’ve been loading my cart up on each shopping trip. I feel like a fruit hoarder. If only I had room in my freezer I’d chop up a bunch of them to last me through the winter. Why are freezers made so tiny anyway?
My fridge and fruit bowl are overflowing and I’ve been throwing fruit into my oatmeal, smoothies, salads…really just about everything. A stone fruit is any fruit that has a stone or pit inside, such as peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots, and cherries. One of my favorite ways to eat stone fruit lately has been grilling or roasting them in the oven! They’re so good with some honey and coconut oil drizzled on top. Roasting really brings out their flavors and sweet juices…Mmmm 🙂
This dessert I’ve made several times in the past few weeks. It’s a yummy combination of different stone fruit roasted with vanilla bean and then is scooped on top of a warm, honey-sweetened scone. A dollop of coconut whipped cream tops it all off and makes one of the best flavor combos ever!
I like to sprinkle a little vanilla sugar onto the scones just to boost that vanilla flavor even more. You can purchase vanilla sugar, make your own, or use turbinado instead. You can also totally omit it to keep these refined sugar free.
I’ve probably tested about 8 different scone recipes that I created and kept tweaking. At first used an all-purpose gluten-free flour, which worked fine and were delicious freshly baked, but after sitting the scones would get really dry and hard. I then used a combo of grain-free flours, including almond flour since I know it carries a lot of moisture. They turned out super delicious and moist, even the next day. This is the recipe I included for the gluten/grain free option, however a gluten-free all-purpose flour will work as well, if you plan to eat these right away.
This dessert is the perfect way to celebrate the end of summer. I couldn’t imagine a better way in which to use up my juicy stone fruits! Enjoy, friends 🙂
