Gluten-Free Honey Scones

Rated as 4.2 out of 5 Stars

"This is a perfect gluten-free and not-too-sweet honey biscuit for strawberry shortcake or even sausage gravy as a breakfast treat. Thinking about how to thicken gravy? We use brown rice flour, works quite well."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk gluten-free flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt, and xanthan gum together in a bowl. Stir butter, yogurt, honey, and egg together in a separate large bowl. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and stir until dough is just combined.
  3. Turn dough out onto prepared baking sheet and shape into a large round about 3/4-inch thick. Use a knife to score dough into 8 triangles without cutting all the way through the dough.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 17 minutes. Cut on the scored lines through the dough to separate into individual scones.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • For variance in flavors, add some lemon or orange zest, a splash of lemon juice, or any dried fruits, raisins, currants, cranberries. You can also add chopped walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, mini chocolate chips, a splash of vanilla, or a pinch of nutmeg or cinnamon.
  • Many scone mixes call for chilled butter or even frozen butter grated on a cheese grater. I did not find this necessary for light and perfect scones; I use softened or room temperature butter.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

These turned out great! I didn't have any coconut flour or xantham gum, but I decided to try out the recipe anyway. The scones turned out slightly crunchy on the outside and nice and fluffy on...

I followed the recipe exactly. It's quite light and fluffy on the inside. My oven cooks fairly quickly, so I dropped my time to 14 minutes and they were still a little more brown than I wanted. ...

Great recipe. I followed the advice of another reviewer and did not add the coconut flour or the xanthan gum. I used greek yogurt, added a tablespoon of pure maple syrup and a cup of chocolate c...

I substituted the all purpose flour for a mix of flours... almond, brown rice, millet and oat. Very good!
