I love the combination of almond and poppy seeds! The poppy seeds add great texture & color while the almond extract makes everything taste that much better. Lucky for you it not only makes an appearance in the scones, but it’s also drizzled over the top in glaze form. You can serve them with icing, or hot with butter, or just eat them plain. The scones themselves are subtly sweet, so if you prefer your breakfast pastries on the sweeter side, you’ll want the almond glaze. Seriously, they are a treat plain, but… a little icing never hurts either. Whichever way you serve them, you won’t be disappointed!
I have loved having these scones on hand for breakfast. It makes mornings much brighter and less stressful when you can just grab and go! There is beauty in simplicity, my friends. Enjoy them for breakfast, brunch, a mid-morning snack, or even dessert with a side of tea or hot cocoa.
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup agave
- 2 tsp. almond extract
- 2? cups almond meal/flour
- 1 T baking powder

- 1/8 tsp. sea salt
- 1/4 cup butter, cold
- 2 cups powdered sugar

- In a larger bowl, combine almond flour, baking powder, poppy seeds, and sea salt. Mix well. Cut in cold butter.
- Drizzle wet mixture over the flour mixture and then toss the mixture together with a rubber spatula until everything appears moistened. Try your best to not overwork the dough. Dough will be a little wet/sticky. Work the dough into a ball with floured hands and transfer to the prepared baking pan.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to 1/4 inch thick. Cut (as evenly as you can) into 12 even triangles
- Bake for 23-25 minutes, or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes before eating.
- For glaze, whisk all ingredients together, adding more milk if needed, to achieve desired consistency. Drizzle 1 tablespoon over each scone.
