Gluten free scones can be pretty darn terrible. Dry and not much flavour.

These scones break all the rules and are totally beautiful to make and to eat. This is a gluten free scone recipe that is also egg free, has no added sugar, is grain free and uses only a handful of ingredients.

These are quick to make and are delicious with a warm cuppa, freeze well and really are just beautiful to make and eat.

These gluten free, grain free scones need a soft hand to make the dough – work it too much and the scones will come out tasty but a bit tough and not as light and fluffy.

A beautiful, high protein scone recipe suitable for coeliacs, celiacs, paleo is hard to find.  This is my version and heaps of peeps love it.  Hope you do to.

hints & tips

  • remember not to over work this mixture – the more you do the firmer the final product will be
  • these do freeze well but need to be gently – at a low temperature – reheated – or defrosted on a cooking rack and reheated gently
  • the nut-free version (using the pepita mix) is dryer (not as much oil in pepitas as in almond meal) – they work well but you do need to ensure you add the olive oil to the mix (not the water, apple cider vinegar or eggs)
