Orange Raisin Scones/Biscuits (Dairy ,Egg, Gluten/Grain and Refined Sugar Free)

I was looking for another grain free breakfast idea and realized, I hadn't made my regular biscuit recipe in awhile.  I thought I would make a different flavour and decided orange was the way to go.  I definitely like this combination.  They were nice and fresh tasting and went well with my morning tea.  These biscuits are great warm or cold the next day.   
Ingredients (makes about 8 biscuits)
  • 1 1/2 cup soaked and cooked navy beans (for soaking and cooking see below)
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice (half orange)
  • 1/3 unsweetened hemp milk or alternative non dairy milk 
  • 1/4 cup honey, agave or any natural sweeteners 
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, grapeseed or olive oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground  flax or chia seeds soaked in 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup raisins

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and grease a baking sheet.
  2. Purée beans, orange juice, honey oil and milk.  Add all remaining ingredients and mix until well blended. (If you are using a blender, you may not want to add the raisins but stir them in later.)
  3. Dropped approximately 1/3 cup size mounds of batter onto a greased baking sheet.  Bake 20-25 minutes.
