Nutty Fruity Scones


Angela’s Post:

As I write this, my dad is squinting at his laptop and muttering obscenities under his breath. Apparently a certain fellow responsible for typing up medical reports is not only incapable of using proper English grammar but also gets basic facts like dates and years wrong. My father, a very busy interventional cardiologist has become a copy editor. I fear for the future of medicine. I don’t want to let some schmuck who doesn’t know the difference between January and February handle my arteries. I guess that’s another reason to eat well and stay healthy.

Today we made deliciously crumbly reduced-sin scones. There’s no butter or refined flour in them, and they’re dairy-free, paleo, and “clean” (I think? Unsure of standards regarding the sanitation of one’s diet) so make them and gobble them up right now! Feed your wife! Feed your husband! Feed your children because they’re darn good and won’t make your blood glucose levels spike uncontrollably!

Nutty Fruity Scones


2 cups almond flour

½ teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup walnuts

¼ cup pecan

1 large egg

2 tablespoons honey



In a large bowl, combine almond flour, salt and soda.

Stir in dried fruit and nuts.

In a small bowl, combine egg and honey.

Stir wet ingredients into dry.

Use your hands to form dough.

Shape into desired shape.

(I used a little coconut flour to prevent sticking when I handled the dough.)

Bake at 350° on a parchment paper lined baking sheet for 10-12 minutes

  1. 这一篇是老大写的吧?一看“Angela:”我还以为是陈老师写给Angela的呢。因为陈老师的Dad即使以前是医生,现在也该退休了。


  2. 陈老师,我说的“不认真”的人是指把文章中把病历写错的人。不是指Angela。应加上“说到病历写错,看来不认真的哪里都有”。我以前评论帖子都可认真了,还看看有没有语病。现在也被感染了,写东西不认真了。请Angela别误会哈。
