Lemon Cardamom Scones

I bought some ground cardamom yesterday and it has been filling my kitchen with it’s fabulous aroma ever since I got it home.  I had to make something with it this morning, so I give you–Lemon Cardamom Scones.

These turned out so delicious.  Crunchy on the outside and dark and a little moist on the inside.  Next time I might try adding eggs, to make them more protein-rich.


  • 3 cups almond meal
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped prunes

  2. Mix all ingredients in food processor or by hand.
  3. Make triangle shapes and place on greased, parchment, or silicone covered cookie sheet.
  4. Bake 15 minutes, until the tops are golden brown.
