Paleo Cranberry Orange Scone

If you haven’t heard someone talk about the Paleo diet I’m really surprised. It’s the newest lifestyle diet to hit everyone from hardcore athletes to grandparents and everyone in-between. I say lifestyle because following Paleo really changes how you eat, not just what you eat. But this drastic move of getting rid of dairy, grains and most processed foods doesn’t mean you have to give up everything you like. Thankfully, coconut oil makes the list as the oil of choice.

Carolyn Ketchum, our guest blogger from earlier this year, made some delicious these Paleo-friendly Raspberry Coconut Scones which were a huge hit! I decided to make some scones of my own with a fall twist: Cranberry and Orange.


These delicious treats are sure to be a hit!

3 cups almond meal or almond flour

2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder or ¾ teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup dried cranberries

2 organic / free range eggs

1/4 cup cold pressed coconut oil

1 heaped tablespoon honey

Zest of 1 orange


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine almond meal or flour, baking soda, and cranberries
  3. In a smaller mixing bowl, mix eggs, coconut oil, and honey until well blended
  4. Add your wet ingredients to the dry and mix well
  5. Knead the dough if necessary to ensure an even distribution of ingredients
  6. Add in the orange zest and continue to knead to mix well
  7. Form dough into two circles approximately 1/2 inch thick, about 6 inches across
  8. Cut each circle 6 or 8 pizza shaped slices, depending on the size you want the scones
  9. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet
  10. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through
  11. Transfer to a cooling rack and Enjoy

Even a baking novice like myself can handle this one. Need other Paleo inspired dishes? Try our Paleo Apple Cobbler, Mashed Sweet Potatoes, or our Pork Tenderloin.

Happy Eating!
