Carrot Apricot Scones (raw, GF, vegan)

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

I took these Carrot Apricot Scones into the office this afternoon and they were very well received.   Chris even snuck back into the break room hoping to find left-overs.  No such luck. :)  But anytime someone wants seconds I know the recipe is a win.  The dehydration process is the key to this recipe, if you over dehydrate them, they can get really dry tasting.   So be sure to test them every once in a while.  The dry time will all depend on what machine you have and how wet your batter was.   When you work with fresh fruits and veggies, shoot even dried fruits,  it is a must to taste test as you are making your batter.  The ripeness and sweetness of every ingredient will make all the difference.  These “scones” taste wonderful alone but the Raw Vanilla Frosting really takes them to another level.  Enjoy!


  • 4 cups shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup Irish moss paste
  • 1 cup coconut flakes, unsweetened
  • 1 cup dried apricots – soaked and diced (save soak water)
  • 3/4 cup raw coconut flour
  • 1/4 soak water from apricots
  • 1/4 cup raw agave nectar
  • 2 Tbsp cold pressed coconut oil, melted
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blend till everything is well incorporated.
  2. Using a large cookie scoop, scoop out the batter and place on a non-stick teflex sheet, using your hands, shape into a scone shape.
  3. Once formed, I then transferred the bar to the mesh sheet that sits on the dehydrator tray.  Do this until all the batter is gone.
  4. Dehydrate at 145 for 1 hour, then reduce to 105 degrees and continue drying for approx. 10 hours.  There should be a slight crust on the outside but moist on the inside.
  5. Allow scones to cool before adding the raw Vanilla Frosting. (this frosting is actually Lemon Vanilla Frosting but I omitted the lemon this round.
  6. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.  You can freeze these as well. (don’t freeze with the frosting)

  1. These look amazing. I’m interested in irish moss paste but when I click on your link it goes to Icing. Would Wholefoods carry this product?

      Good evening Seemichellecook,

      Thank you for pointing that error out. I fixed it so it now directs a person in the right direction. :) Irish moss is an amazing ingredients for many reasons. The role it can play in a recipe and the health benefits. Our WF store doesn’t carry it but you can always check yours. I order mine on-line through http://www.therawfoodworld.com/. I am sort of, no I AM picking about the quality that I buy when it comes to it and so far I have been very pleased with theirs. You can also check your local health food stores.

      Blessings, amie sue

      Good morning Agne,

      Thank you… my passion for raw and healthy eating is a strong one and having this outlet to share with others is such a joy for me. Regarding the Irish moss… you can just omit it. The main reason I used it for the nutritional aspect and it adds some fluffier texture… but you can make this without it if your nervous about an allergic reaction. If the batter seems a little to dry (since the moss does add a little moisture) save the apricot soak water and add a Tbsp spoon at a time, if needed. Keep me posted if you give it a try. Have a wonderful day, amie sue

    I read that Irish Moss is not good for you. It was found that it also caused inflammation. Irish moss should be avoided, due to the likelihood that the carrageenan in the Irish moss will lead to inflammation. Is there something that can be used instead of irish moss?

      You can just omit it, it should turn out fine. The Irish moss helps to add a bit of “fluff” to it. Have a great evening.
