  • Substitute oat milk for the coconut milk to make the scones dairy-free. The benefit of this substitution is that it makes the scones vegan-friendly and can provide a healthier alternative to dairy-based milk.
  • Substitute almond butter for the butter to make the scones nut-free. The benefit of this substitution is that it eliminates the need for butter, which can be high in saturated fat, and provides a nut-free alternative for those with allergies.

Delicious scones, and oh so good with my cocoa. They were moist and tasted like an Almond Joy to me, which I love! Hubby ate two, no problem and complimented me on how good they were!

These scones are so yummy! Moist and a great flavor mix. I knew I would love these since it has coconut, nuts and chocolate, which always compliments each other!

We love scones, but I usually buy them. I decided to try making these because it isn't one you usually find in a bakery, or at the market. Also I had some sliced almonds I had to use up. I did take your advise and topped them with coconut, because to me there can never be too much. The scones were delicious, and moist too! They made me think of Almond Joys, which I love!

In the 18th century, scones were a popular snack for British royalty. Queen Victoria was known to enjoy scones in the afternoon with tea, and the tradition of afternoon tea was born.
