Preparation

To Make the Scones:
  1. In a large bowl, add almond meal, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until combined.
  2. Add cold coconut oil bowl and work it in with fingers until the mix is slightly crumbly.
  3. Add poppy seeds, cane sugar, lemon zest, and juice to dry ingredients. Stir until well combined.
  4. Add soy milk and work with your hands until dough is crumbly but moist. If it is more moist than crumbly, add a little more almond meal/coconut flour.
  5. Work dough into the shape of a disk and set on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  6. Cut scones into triangles and put in a 400°F oven for 20 minutes.
  7. Bake until golden and crispy on edges, then allow to cool before glazing.
To Make the Glaze:
  1. Add ingredients until you get desired consistency and glaze however you’d like.

Notes

You can find lavender syrup at specialty baking stores, or make your own by taking a small amount of dried or fresh culinary lavender and simmering it in equal parts sugar and water until the mixture is reduced and slightly thickened.
