Fruit Scones

Looking for a breakfast baked good that isn't loaded with sugar? Look no further....

* 3/4 cup rice flour
* 3/4 cup sorghum flour
* 4 T teff flour
* 2 T baking powder
* 4 tsp xanthan gum
* 2 T agave nectar
* 6 oz butter, room temperature
* 1/2 cup cranberries/blueberries ( I used fresh, but dried would work)
* 2 eggs
* 1/2 cup fat free sour cream
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* zest of 1 lemon and 1 orange (optional)

Mix dry ingredients. Mix in butter and add fruit. In a seperate bowl, whisk together egg, sour cream, vanilla, and zest. Mix liquid ingredients into the dry mix.
Make a circle about 1 inch in height and cut 8 wedges. Seperate pieces and bake at 450 for 20-22 minutes.

Serve with a drizzle of honey, a scoop of jam and clotted cream, or enjoy plain with a cup of tea/coffee.
