These Gluten Free Scones with Blueberries are a delicious breakfast treat! Crumbly, dense, buttery goodness with juicy pops of blueberries!

Serious question: are you team muffin or team scone?

I love some good whole wheat blueberry muffins and all BUT I have to say that I am team SCONE for sure.

I mean, with all that buttery goodness? HOW CAN YOU GO WRONG.

And considering I have only made 1 scone recipe, my gluten free samoa scones, I figured it was time for scones to make a reappearance here on FFF.

You’re welcome.

What is a Scone?

Here on the blog, we certainly have NO shortage of baked goods here on the blog, BUT we definitely are in need of a few more scone recipes. Now I know what you may be thinking- isn’t a scone just like a biscuit? We DO have a delicious cheddar gluten free biscuit recipe around here that is to die for, but biscuits and scones just aren’t the same. Biscuits often use quite a bit of butter as well as acidity to achieve that flaky perfection, whereas scones rely on denser and more rich ingredients such as eggs and whipping cream. A scone is a pastry that is sturdy and dense; it holds together well but is also rich, buttery and crumbly all at the same time. Add in some blueberries and you’ve got yourself the BEST gluten free blueberry scones!

Ingredients Needed

Now that your stomach is rumbling, it’s time to round up everything you will need to make a batch of gluten free blueberry scones. This recipe calls for some typical baking ingredients that you probably already have hanging around your fridge and pantry. Here’s what you will need to make your scones:

Gluten Free 1:1 FlourSugarBaking PowderXantham GumSaltButterEggMilk of choice Fresh Lemon JuiceFresh Lemon ZestVanillaFresh BlueberriesCream or Full Fat Coconut MilkRaw Organic Cane SugarPowdered SugarFresh Lemon Juice 

How to make Gluten Free Scones

Prepare

Turn on the oven and let it preheat while you work. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Mix

In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, xantham gum and salt and whisk to combine. 

Blend

Grate the butter with a cheese grater and blend it into the flour mixture using your hands until it looks coarse. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, lemon juice, zest and vanilla and set aside. 

Combine

Add the wet ingredients to the dry butter mixture and stir until everything is well mixed. Add in the blueberries and stir to fold them in. 

Shape

Pour the batter into the pan and shape it into a circle. Use a sharp knife to cut it into slices like a pizza.

Chill

Brush the tops of the scones with cream and sprinkle with sugar. Pop the pan in the fridge to chill for a bit.

Bake

Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake until the tops are lightly golden brown. 

Glaze and Serve

Whisk together the glaze ingredients and drizzle over the top of the baked scones. Serve them up and DEVOUR!

So you’ve got your measuring cups and your flour and are all ready to make this gluten free scone recipe a reality- but did you know that HOW you measure is SO important? Here are some tips to make sure your scones turn out amazing:

Spoon the Flour into the measuring cups and level them by scraping off the top with a butter knife. Weigh the Flour: Use a kitchen scale to weigh the flour so that you ensure you have the exact right amount.

Scone Storage

These scones keep fabulously in the fridge for about 3 days if stored in an airtight container. If you want them to last longer, I suggest wrapping them in saran wrap and then placing them in a freezer style zip lock bag. They will last in the freezer this way for up to 3 months!

Gluten Free Scones Recipe Variations

If you want to switch things up with this scone recipe so that it suits your dietary needs or preferences, I say go right ahead! To make them dairy free, simply use dairy free butter in this recipe. If you want to add some texture, chop up some pecans or walnuts and toss them in. Feel free to play around with the fruit too- raspberries, blackberries or strawberries would also be delicious in this scone recipe, and you could use orange juice and zest instead of lemon if you want!

Scones FAQ

Why do you need Xantham Gum in Gluten Free Baking?Xantham gum acts as a binding agent in gluten free baking, since gluten normally is the agent that binds in most traditional baking. It helps dough to bind and be sticky, holding everything together.

What are Scones Traditionally Served With?In England, scones are traditionally served with clotted cream and jam. It makes a delicious combination!

Can I use a different Berry instead of Blueberries?Absolutely! Feel free to use raspberries, strawberries, or blackberries in this scone recipe if your heart desires!
