2-3 cups whole what flour (can us gf or white)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup avocado oil
2 tbsp ground flax (in 4 tbsp water)
3/4 cup maple syrup 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 tsp maple extract
2 tsp vanilla extract 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl make your flax egg, stir flax and water together, allow to sit. In a large bowl, mix together oat flour and 2 cups of whole wheat flour, flax egg, baking powder, oil, maple syrup, brown sugar, milk, extracts and salt. When mixed together look for a slightly sticky dough. If the dough is too wet, start adding in your last cup of flour slowly. Add in pecans, and combine. You can make these into any shape you wish, small circles, scone like triangles, you can cut them with a cookie cutter. Place a little oil on your hands before handling the dough. If you are using a cookie cutter, make sure to flour your surface and oil the edged of your cookie cutter. Oil the baking sheet or use parchment paper. Place your shapes on the baking sheet, they do not spread out. Bake for 13 minutes. Allow to cool. To make the icing, combine all ingredients in a bowl, add icing sugar to your desired consistency. Top your cooled scones with icing and pecans! *Maple extract is essential for a maple flavour, however they would taste good without.
