Coconut Date Scones

June 3, 2010

Pre-heat oven to 400


1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1 cup All Purpose Flour

1/2 cup oats

1/4 cup sugar*

1 tsp Salt

1 Tbsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Baking Soda

1/2 cup coconut powder

1/2 cup sweetened flake coconut

1/2 cup chopped dried dates

5 Tbsp butter

2/3 cup coconut milk (I used Trader Joe’s light coconut milk)

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Cut in butter.  Mix in chopped dates.  Add Coconut milk and mix until dough starts to come together.  Turn out on lightly floured surface, knead a few times.  Pat into a circle about 3/4 inch thick.  Cut into 8 triangles.  Bake for 15-18 minutes.  Enjoy.

*The next time I make these I will cut the sugar by at least a tablespoon as they were a bit too sweet for my liking.
