Non-gluten flours to use for desserts whole-grain brown rice (from short grain rice or from sweet brown rice, but only in small proportions), whole-grain amaranth, whole-grain teff, whole-grain millet, and or sorghum flour. Flours with gluten to use for desserts whole-grain pastry wheat, whole-grain kamut (very similar to wheat), whole-grain spelt (very similar to wheat), and or whole-grain oat (either ground from oat groats or from food processed rolled oats). NOTE As you change the flours used in a dessert, the proportion of wet ingredients required may change (due to different moisture levels in different flours, and how they absorb moisture), so adjustments may be needed to give the right consistency to the batter dough. For example, teff flour in a pie crust may not require as much liquid as whole wheat pastry flour to make a good, rollable pie crust dough. Additionally, using pre-ground flours instead of fresh ground flours from whole grains may change the amount of wet...

I'm sure a true Scotsman would keel over 1. at the thought of a chocolate scone. But these are quite restrained, even though they contain three forms of chocolate milk, 2. bittersweet, and cocoa powder. I use cut-up bittersweet chocolate for the chunks in the scones instead of chocolate chips because the latter are seldom made from high-quality chocolate. Combine the milk chocolate, cocoa, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Pulse repeatedly until the chocolate is finely ground. Don't over-process or the chocolate will melt. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt and pulse 5 to 6 times to mix thoroughly. Add the butter and pulse until it is finely mixed in and the mixture resembles cornmeal, 10 to 12 pulses. Add the bittersweet chocolate chunks to the bowl. serving Serve the scones with butter, clotted cream, or nothing. I prefer mine plain, since the chocolate has plenty of richness.

Then add half the orange peel (I don't want to 'waste' an orange so I so use bottled orange peel from the spices section at the supermarket) and stir for another minute or so. Then stir in the 2 ice cubes until they are melted. Mixture should be tepid by now. Meanwhile after chocolate and butter melt stir until they are well blended.
