Do you like to bake on rainy days?  I got the idea to make these scones from a reader.  Sometimes you guys have the best ideas!  I love all your suggestions and truly write them all down in my everenote.  I have a very long list now!

If you like baking in the rain, I highly recommend my flourless salted caramel cookies or my banana blueberry muffins.

    1. Applesauce or more sweet potato may work. I haven't tried to say for sure, so I would love for you to report the results. :)
  1. These look amazing! I've had the biggest scone craving lately and these are perfect! (I could be blind but I don't see the sweet potato measurement listed?)
      1. should that be 1 1/2 cups? i would like to use almond flour as well but 1/2 cup seems quite a small amount compared to 1 1/2 cups cashews.
  2. Hi Melissa! Can't wait to try these I hate asking sub questions so I apologize in advance. I don't have chickpea four and I don't want to wait for it to come online. I have about every other kind of GF flour though...sorgum, quinoa, tapioca, arrowroot...which one of those might work best in your experience in place of bean flour?? We can't have nuts right now so my usual go to almond flour is out. Thank you so much!!
