Gluten free oat flour scone with ground flaxseed, chia seed and dry nectarine!

By now you probably can tell that I am a huge scone fan. I love scones but I can't really seem to find the perfect gluten-free scone with low Glycemic index out in the market. I know, there are Vegan variety available but most of them use sugar cane or agave syrup which doesn't really fight the craving nor hunger but makes the blood sugar spikes up and down. Then I'd crave for more snacks later on, so, what's the point of eating those, right?? Well, I don't have diabetes but I do demand all the ingredients to be top quality and meet my high healthy standards... which I know, you'd say, make your own then!! So this is exactly what I did and I am always on the lookout for a perfect scone recipe. 

The fun part of making my own scones is "the various dry ingredients" I can roll inside my scones.  I have tried raisins, slivered almond, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, goji berries, and even flaxseed and whey isolated protein powders. Ha, if I want to make my own, it won't hurt just make it like a perfect meal with all the nutritions packed into one, right?




This time, I added "Chia seed" and I love the tiny crunchiness when chewing down the scones. Another thing of making scones is you probably have to see if you are allergic or just a bit sensitive to xanthan gum since some people feel bloating after consuming it. I actually eliminate it in most of my scone recipe but this time, I feel like I want to make this version of scone a little "chewy" with the sensation we get from regular gluten/wheat scones. Well, it is a food additive and even though I only use 1/2 tbs, you might use it in your own discretion. 


See those tiny dots (flax n' chia) and purple/orange (nectarine), don't those scones look so tasty or what?? 

Okey, cut the talking, here is the recipe. 

INGREDIENTS:


1/2 cup (3 oz.) oat flour (you can grind your own)

1/2 cup (3 oz.) gluten-free flour mix ( plus more for kneading)

3 tablespoons coconut palm sugar (vanilla flavor)

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon xantham gum

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

2 tablespoons cold (can even be frozen) coconut butter

1/4 cup ground flaxseed mixed with berries

1/4 cup chia seed

1/4 organic dry nectarine (chopped or sliced into pieces) 

1 egg yolk 

1/2 tbsp vanilla extract 

1/3 cup Greek yogurt

50ml milk/soy/almond milk of ur choice

DIRECTIONS:


1. Preheat the oven to 425 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Combine the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Whisk to blend.

3. Grate/crumb the coconut oil over the dry ingredients and combine with a fork or your fingers to the texture of dry ingredients. Add the nectarines and toss to coat with the flour mixture.

4. Separate the yolk into a 1 cup glass measure. Add 1/3 Greek yogurt and milk equal 1/2 cup and whisk to blend. Add the cream mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until the dough comes together into a ball. Turn the dough onto a well GF floured surface and knead 3-4 times.

5. Form the dough into a 3/4 inch round, pat with the little cream remaining in the measuring cup. Cut into 8 wedges and place on the prepared baking sheet.

6. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown and use a toothpick to test the middle part. Clean toothpick means it's done in the center.  Let cool for a few minutes before serving with butter and your favorite jam.

Still proper, Fendi leather skirt!

I worn my Fendi skirt to the city for dinner last night. San Francisco's weather is perfect for wearing leather anything.... It is almost windy all the time around the bay and I find leather is the best shield for blocking out brutal wind in the city. I even like it better than wearing a trench coat.  

Over the years I acquired enough leather jackets, leather mini skirt and leather pants but I'm lacking long leather skirt in my wardrobe. Not only is the fact that a good looking long leather skirt is hard to come by but also a thought that it might be cumbersome to move around in it. Hum..... but you know what, all these uncertainty is redundant the moment I see Fendi 2015 fall/winter runway leather long skirt with pony hair. Ha~ the right moment comes with the right item, I am grabbing it. If you know which one I am talking about, you know I got myself a double-shield wind-proof skirt. lol.... As you can see I'm very into Fendi especially Monster collection at this moment. …

How Life is ... How You Respond to it?

After almost a year and a half hiatus, I am back writing my blogs again. There are a lot of memorable activities that happened and I recently moved to another house, which I can say without a doubt, is my dream house. It has a nice swimming pool, great landscapes, and a media room in the basement. I always feel unsettled at first when I move into a new place but once I have a vision of how I can make it my home, I'd start the remodel right away. You do everything you can to make yourself "comfortable" in every circumstance, right? 
     I am here at Reno now. Not for skiing, not for gambling, but for my girl's volleyball tournament. A lot of you didn't know I have a daughter who's going to be 13 this year and I am so proud of her unique talents. What do we call them?  iGeneration. The most precious years of their life: teenage years. They are mostly on their own, developing their personality, their existence, and identifying their self-worth. All we paren…

4/12 (Sun.) Day 2 in Vegas w/ Girl Friends!

First of all, I have to thank Irene for coordinating every one's schedule to make this dream trip happen.

On Sunday, we planned to treat ourselves to a beauty spa in Mandalay Bay Hotel. Our appointment at The Bathhouse spa is at 1 PM. But since yesterday we stood up so late, we didn't wake up until 11 AM. However, neither Cathy nor I think we actually fell asleep as we were still so exhausted when waked up. And I am the one who slept the least but got up from the bed the first. I went to gamble alone after clubbing till 5 or 6 in the morning. Well, the time in Vegas is too luxury to stay in bed anyway. lol Pei probably slept not bad at all as I can hear she snores persistently throughout the night. haha............

We each had either Swedish or Deep-muscle massage. I recall my last massage is when I traveled back to Taiwan. My Dad took us family to Thailand and he called for two people to our room. In Thailand, most massagers' body frame are small-built but I am surpri…
